Last weekend, all of Massachusetts was snowed in due to the historic winter storm Nemo (2 feet of snow in some places!). In a way, it was nice to spend some time at home with your roommates and watch movies, play games, cook, and bake (my favorite hobby!). My sister and I made classic milk & white chocolate chip cookies.
Chocolate chip cookie recipe (yields 50-60 cookies):
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 Cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 3/4 Cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 Cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 Cup white chocolate chips
- 1 Cup milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.
- Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beat well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Drop 1 tablespoon dough onto ungreased baking sheets
- Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Jamie’s tips for this recipe:
- Feel free to use any type of chocolate chips (milk, dark, semi-sweet, white). I used a combination of milk & white, which is on the sweeter side.
- Optional: you can also add 1 Cup of chopped nuts
- If there’s ice cream in the fridge, try a chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich for dessert!
Enjoy, and Happy Friday!
