Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies by America's Test Kitchen

Recommended Posts

I made these a few weeks ago but somehow they vanished before I could conduct a thorough test. Guess I'll have to make another batch soon.

 

This recipe makes less than the typical toll-house recipe on the Nestle's choc chip bag so you may want to double if feeding lots of folks for more than one day.  Also, a #24 scoop will make a darned big cookie.  I use a #30. 

 

Ingredients
    1 3/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (8 3/4 ounces)
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    14 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 3/4 sticks)
    1/2 cup granulated sugar (3 1/2 ounces)
    3/4 cups packed dark brown sugar (5 1/4 ounces) (see note)
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 large egg
    1 large egg yolk
    1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips or chunks (see note)
    3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted (optional)

Instructions

  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375 degrees. Line 2 large (18- by 12-inch) baking sheets with parchment paper. Whisk flour and baking soda together in medium bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat 10 tablespoons butter in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until melted, about 2 minutes. Continue cooking, swirling pan constantly until butter is dark golden brown and has nutty aroma, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and, using heatproof spatula, transfer browned butter to large heatproof bowl. Stir remaining 4 tablespoons butter into hot butter until completely melted.
  3. Add both sugars, salt, and vanilla to bowl with butter and whisk until fully incorporated. Add egg and yolk and whisk until mixture is smooth with no sugar lumps remaining, about 30 seconds. Let mixture stand 3 minutes, then whisk for 30 seconds. Repeat process of resting and whisking 2 more times until mixture is thick, smooth, and shiny. Using rubber spatula or wooden spoon, stir in flour mixture until just combined, about 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts (if using), giving dough final stir to ensure no flour pockets remain.
  4. Divide dough into 16 portions, each about 3 tablespoons (or use #24 cookie scoop). Arrange 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets, 8 dough balls per sheet. (Smaller baking sheets can be used, but will require 3 batches.)
  5. Bake cookies 1 tray at a time until cookies are golden brown and still puffy, and edges have begun to set but centers are still soft, 10 to 14 minutes, rotating baking sheet halfway through baking. Transfer baking sheet to wire rack; cool cookies completely before serving.

      I forgot to take pictures of the meats I fixed today so forgive me.
       
      I fired up Akorn jr and did a turkey breast, it was so tender and juicy.  I also fired up the big Akorn and did chicken hindquarters and butterfly pork chops they were also a big hit.  Then on went a blueberry dump cake.
       
      As we were eating I remembered talking the other day about doing chocolate chip cookies on the Akorn.  So my daughter in law made up a batch of dough. 
       
      They were pretty awesome tasting!!!!!
