Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe by justcallmetoni
READY IN: 28mins




  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the softened butter with the sugars and corn syrup. Beat at medium-high speed for 3 to 4 minutes until the butter is light and fluffy and much of the granular sugar is dissolved into the butter. Add the egg and the scrapings from the inside of the ½ vanilla bean.
  • In another mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt.
  • Reduce your mixer speed to medium and combine the dry ingredients into the liquid. Only mix enough to fully combine the ingredients. Over mixing toughens the cookie up.
  • Using a spatula fold the chocolate chunks and shavings into the dough.
  • Scoop mounded tablespoons of dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8-9 minutes. Actual baking time depends on the size of the cookie; 2 inch cookies are about 8 minutes, very large 3-4 inch cookies are more like 10-11 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow them to cool for 1 minute on the sheets before removing to a wire rack.
  • Serve with milk and a smile.
