My mom has been making these chocolate chip cookies for as long as I can remember. She'd send frozen rolls to me in college so I could pull a log out and make them whenever I was craving them. She recently made these for Gabriella's birthday and the next day, almost everyone at the party called asking for the recipe! Well...here it is...
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 egg
- 2 ounces milk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 sticks unsalted butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl.
- Combine the egg, milk, and vanilla and bring to room temperature in another bowl.
- Slowly add the flour mixture, scraping the sides of the bowl until thoroughly combined.
- Cream the butter, starting on low speed to soften the butter.
- Add the sugars. Increase the speed, and cream the mixture until light and fluffy.
- Reduce the speed and add the egg mixture slowly. Increase the speed and mix until well combined.
- Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Using an ice cream scooper, scoop onto parchment-lined baking sheets, 6 cookies per sheet.
- Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, checking the cookies after 5 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet for more even browning.
Roll out frozen cookie dough and slice into 1-inch rounds, arrange slices on cookie sheet and bake.
At this point you can scoop onto parchment paper and roll into a log. Twist the ends of the parchment and wrap the log in plastic wrap to store in the freezer.
