I decided to try out a new cookie recipe for an Easter cookout with some friends. These are hands down the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made. Seriously. EVER. The recipe was taken from the inside of a Land O' Lakes butter box. Enjoy!
Chewy Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies
(makes 26 jumbo cookies, or 4 dozen regular sized if dropped by rounded tbsp-ful)
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugan
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks or chips
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda in a medium bowl. Set aside.
2. Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla. Continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Reduce speed to low. Beat, gradually adding flour mixture, until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chunks/chips.
3. Drop dough by 1/4 cup fulls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased (nonstick) cookie sheets. Bake for 10-14 minutes (mine took closer to 16 minutes) or until light golden brown. (DO NOT OVERBAKE.) Let stand 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets.
