Adapted from Pinch of Yum’s, “Best Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies”, these are a cut above the rest of the recipes out there (in my humble opinion, of course). The melting of the butter first may be the trick to their texture.
These take minimal time to make and will satisfy the cookie monster in all of us.
2 sticks of butter (16 TB), melted and cooled (I use Irish butter) Note: I tried my last batch with 12 TB butter and 2 TB olive oil.
1/2 cup raw Turbino sugar
1/2 cup brown coconut sugar (I tried my last batch with 1/3 cup)
2 tsp vanilla bean paste
2 large eggs
3 cups bread flour (I used King Arthur’s)
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup chocolate chunks (cut from a mix of milk chocolate and dark chocolate bars)
This recipe easily doubles.
If you like, you can add more chocolate chips, chunks or pieces.
If you like nuts in your cookies, mix them in when you mix in the chocolate.
