One of these days I'm going to lose my Kitchenaid recipe book for good, instead of just misplacing it as I so often do. This is my insurance that my reputation for fantastic chocolate chip cookies remains intact.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar (or 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 1/2 tablespoons molasses)
- 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Soften butter in the microwave. I microwave each stick of butter 15 seconds then rotate 180 degrees and microwave for another 15 seconds. Your oven will be different.
- Place sugars, butter, eggs, and vanilla in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater to mixer.
- Turn to Speed 2 and mix for 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to Speed 4 and beat another 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl.
- Sift together baking soda, salt, and flour.
- Turn to Stir Speed. Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture over about 2 minutes.
- Turn to Speed 2 and mix 30 seconds.
- Turn to Stir Speed and add chocolate chips, mixing for 15 seconds.
- Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, longer if you prefer crunchy cookies.
- Let the cookies rest for 1 minute after removing from oven, then remove them and cool on wire racks. Allow the baking sheets to cool about 2 minutes before using them for the next batch.
I have been sharing these cookies since I got the recipe in the paper cookbook that came with my Kitchenaid Mixer 20 years ago, now if someone ask for it I tell them to google "Kitchenaid chocolate chip recipe" it is best! I always use real butter, real vanilla and large eggs.
I finally lost my cookie page in my book, you are my hero! Thank you!
I'm a baker, raised in a baking family. My own family gets homemade cakes, cookies and sweetbreads at least once a week. When it comes to chocolate chip cookies, it's one of those foods where people like what they were raised with. I was raised with variations on the tollhouse cookie recipe. Over the past couple of years I found my cookies were spreading too much. I tried this recipe on a whim based on the reviews. This recipe yields a less than sweet, cake type cookie that leaves something to be desired. I've now doctored my original tollhouse recipe, and my husband and sons are eating these cookies to hold them 'til they get the good stuff at Christmas.
