Recipe of goodness

I have been asked for the recipe for the chocolate chips that went over so well last week.  So, here goes!

  • 1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips

You know the drill, mix the butter, sugars, egg and vanilla in one bowl, dry ingredients in the other, slowly fold in the dry ingredients then fold in the chips.  Use cooled cookie sheets for each batch.  Bake at 350 until golden.

Since you’re using milk chocolate chips, which are much sweeter than the typical semi-sweet chips, you use less sugar.  Since you’re using less sugar and the same amt of butter, the bottoms get dark and carmelize (they have a tendancy to burn easier because of this), but the insides stay chewy.  It’s a little bit of everything, crunchy, sweet, chewy…  They’re full of goodness 🙂
