Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
It's always fun to try a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, and this recipe created (as the name implies) a thick, chewy cookie.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/8 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cups semisweet chocolate chips
No need to preheat the oven since the dough needs to be refrigerated.
Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda together into a large bowl. Set aside.
Beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a bowl with a mixer. Beat in the egg, and then beat in the vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture and beat until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Press plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the dough and refrigerate at least one hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake about 12 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and let cool 10 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
Yields 18 cookies
