The Supreme Chocolate Chip Cookie

I finally found the best recipe for chocolate chip cookies- one that is exactly what I was looking for. Gooey on the inside, a little crisp on the outside, chocolatey, tender, not flat (hate when that happens).  I am pretty jazzed about finding this recipe.  My kids are very jazzed about it too. 

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
2 eggs
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.

LOL! You tried to cook them outside. You are a hoot!!! I always deliberately flatten my CCC, but will have to try these.
