This is the recipe for chocolate chip cookies
For more details check out the Jan/Feb 96 edition of Cooks Illustrated.
- 2 c. all-purpose flour plus two tablespoons more
- ½ t baking soda
- ½ t salt
- 1½ sticks Butter (melted and this is key! also this is a bit less than typical)
- ½ c granulated sugar
- 1 c packed brown sugar
- 2 t vanilla extract
- 2 Eggs (1 whole, 1 yolk)
- 1 12oz (bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Mix butter,
granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Add
eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat
in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Bake on un-greased cookie
sheets for 15-18 min. @ 325°F.
Also this recipe works great with white whole wheat flour as well to add at least some nutrition.
I have had excellent success substituting 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed meal and 5 tablespoons of water for the eggs if you need to go egg-less.
