Chocolate Chip Cookies with Milk and Semi-Sweet Chips

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Milk and Semi-Sweet Chips
Makes 3-4 dozen, depending on size

I have to attribute my appreciation of this combo–milk and semi sweet–to one of my closest friends, JoJo, with whom I spent many hours reading cookbooks and copying out recipes in the basement of the Harvard Coop. The first time I watched her pour chips from two bags into her dough, I was surprised. Then, almost immediately, I found myself a convert.

As for the chocolate chip cookie recipe, it’s more or less the Tollhouse one, and I think it makes the most exquisite soft cookies–just be sure to underbake!

Read the original post here.

2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar (you can substitute dark, but then use a little less brown sugar and slightly more white)
1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
1 egg
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour–poured in
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Mix sugars and butter in a large bowl. With a mixer, hand-held beater, or very strong arm, beat until creamy. Then beat in the egg until the batter is fluffy and light.

Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 6-8 minutes or until just barely set. Cool for 5-10 minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove to a rack or a plate to finish cooling.

    This is my absolute favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe! I discovered it last week and I’ve already made it 3 times, with a 4th batch on the way tonight (2 out of the 4 batches were for other people, I didn’t eat them all haha). I use Guittard chocolate chips and they turn out AMAZING. My husband constantly requests them!! Thank you so much! :)

    You could cure an obscure disease or bring about world peace and this recipe might still be your biggest contribution to humanity. Still my go-to and my very favorite after all these years! xx

    These are delicious and my daughter makes them every year at Christmas, but she adds vanilla extract. Do you ever add vanilla to the recipe, and if so, how much?
