The first day, when I made the batter, we did a test batch in the sun. A little experiment to see how log it would take to bake chocolate chip cookies in the sun. Um... yeah, all day. Maybe I did something wrong. It was about five hours when we just gave up and ate them anyway. A bit undercooked.
Next day, when it was a little cooler, I baked them in the oven. They were a super hit in the house.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Supreme
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1 3/4 cup brown sugar
8 ounces unsalted butter
1 pound chocolate chips or your favorite chocolate chopped up
2 teaspoons vanilla or the seeds of one vanilla bean scraped
Cream the butter and the sugars together. About five minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time. Then vanilla. In another bowl combine, flour, salt and baking soda. Fold in chocolate. Chill if you like, but it is not necessary.
Bake at 360F (not 350- but really I don't know how much of a difference it would make) about 12 minutes. They will appear golden on the outside but they will still be chewy in the center. Cool on rack.
