I'm In The Mood For Cookies

I do love cookies. I love to make cookies. I love to eat cookies. I also love to share cookies with everyone else. I work in a health care facility and I have a few coworkers so I always try to bring in any treat that I make. We are ordering out for dinner tonight from the local grange hall and since I was in the baking mood I would bring in some cookies. I decided upon the Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies from the Martha Stewart Cookies. Before I started to make the cookies I had to make sure I had all the ingredients. I did, which I was glad of because as the title of this post reads I am in the mood for cookies.

Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies from Martha Stewart Cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

14 tablespoons (1 3/4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1 teaspoon coarse salt

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

2 large eggs

2 cups semisweet or milk chocolate chips, or a combination of both (I used mini chocolate chips, only 1 cup instead of 2)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour and baking soda in a bowl.

2. Put butter and both sugars on the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to low. Add salt, vanilla, and eggs; mix until combined, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

3. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake cookies until centers are set and edges are golden, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cool on baking sheets 2 minutes. I let the cookies about 5 minutes on the baking sheets. Transfer cookies to wire racks; let cool completely. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature up to 1 week.

Makes 3 dozen cookies
