Chocolate Chip Cookies – {Soft & Chewy}

My kids love it when coming from school I treat them to freshly baked, still warm and chewy cookies with cold glass of milk. Make them for your family, I bet they'll eat more than one (or two) :) Pinit I have a thing for chocolate chip cookies, but not just any chocolate chip cookies. They have to be loaded with chocolate with deliciously chewy center. I am glad Kelly of Just a Taste posted these, because these are just that! They take minutes to whip up and are so convenient to have in your freezer. I always make 2 batches and freeze what we don’t bake right away. [fb_button]

My kids love it when coming from school I treat them to freshly baked, still warm and chewy cookies with cold glass of milk. Why mention kids? I love it when I do that!
Do you eat your cookies with warm or cold milk? What about cereal? cold? warm?

Choclate Chip Cookies – {Soft & Chewy}

Ingredients

Sift together:

  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Cream together

  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter, at room temp
  • ¼ cup cream cheese, at room temp
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1¼ teaspoons vanilla extract

Add:

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Sift or whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a bowl of a mixer, cream together (with paddle attachment) butter, cream cheese, white and brown sugars and vanilla extract until lighter in color and fluffy, about two minutes. Don’t forget to scrape down the bowl as needed.
  3. Add eggs one at a time and beat well before adding the second one.
  4. Add flour mixture and mix for another minute or two to combine. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop out the batter onto parchment paper lined baking sheet and refrigerate for 2 hours (or up to 3 days).
  6. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375°F
  7. Place cookie balls 2 inches apart on the baking sheet and send the rest of the ‘cookie’ balls in the freezer.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until just slightly golden on the sides. Allow to cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes (they will be too soft to transfer), then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
