“My food story is cooking Chocolate Chip Cookies with my Grandma at my cottage. It was a sunny day and I just got in from swimming and made cookies in the afternoon!”
Yield: 24 cookies
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 50 minutes
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F with racks in the upper and lower third positions. In a small bowl, whisk together flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add salt, vanilla, and eggs; mix to combine. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture, mixing until just combined. Mix in chocolate chips.
- Using a tablespoon measure, drop heaping portions of dough about 2 inches apart on lined baking sheets.
- Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.
