Seeing my history of using dark chocolate, I don’t really have to explain how obsessed I am with dark chocolates. I always feel so good about making a fresh batch of cookies. Well these cookies are very similar to the one printed on the bag of Nestle’s Chocolate Chips. I prefer the cookies to be a bit chewy with caramelized edges and hence make use of both brown and white sugar.
Unsalted butter– 1 cup
Granulated white sugar- 3/4 cup
Light brown sugar- 3/4 cup packed
Pure vanilla extract– 1 1/2 tsp
Large eggs- 2
Baking soda– 1tsp
All purpose flour– 2 1/4 cup
dark chocolate chips– 1 1/2 cup
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degree F and line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter until smooth. Add white and brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Add in eggs one at a time making sure you beat well after each addition. Add in the vanilla extract and mix well.
In a separate bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the mixture slowly to the liquid mixture and mix well until no lumps are visible. Add in the chocolate chips and give it a nice stir. If the dough is very soft, refrigerate for an hour.
Using two spoons drop about two tbsp of dough onto the baking sheet. Make sure there is enough spacing between the dough to rise and flatten. Bake for 12- 14 minutes and cool it completely on a wire rack before tasting!
