I posted a plea on Facebook early last week. I begged all of my facebook friends for cookie recipes. I needed fuel for my cookie party fire. My sister receives credit for this fabulous recipe. I can honestly call these the very best chocolate chip cookies that I've ever had.
They are very gooey on the inside, with a slightly crispy exterior, and chewy edges.
In other words, chocolate chip cookie heaven--everything that your girl loves in a cookie.
A tower of terror, chocolate-style.
Here's the recipe. They're super simple, so you should make them now!
Jessica’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
8 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 2/3 cup all purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt... See More 2 large eggs 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350. Heat chopped chocolate and butter in a microwave safe bowl in 20 second increments, stirring between each, until almost melted; do not over heat. Remove; stir until melted and smooth. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
With an electric mixer, beat eggs, brown sugar and vanilla on high speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; beat in chocolate mixture. Mix in dry ingredients just until combined. Fold in chocolate chunks.
Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto baking sheets 2 to 3 inches apart. Bake, rotating sheets halfway thru, until cookies are shiny and crackly, yet still soft in center, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on sheets 10 minutes; with a thin metal spatula transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
