It's true a Baker I may not be, but I keep trying! There is such an art to Baking, even if its simple Chocolate chip Cookies. But, I think I am way harder on myself than I should be, because the baking very rarely is returned from the field for me to have a taste myself.
I attempted these chocolate Chips last night, I had a customer come in months ago, maybe even a year actually that I think of it, and she said the Magnolia Chocolate Chips Cookies were delicious and always turned out, so hesitantly I took her word for it, so here's the recipe.
Magnolia Table Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate amount: Depending on what you’re in the mood for, you can add 1/2 cup more or less chocolate than what is called for. I'd definitely add more Chips next time!
Makes about 40 cookies
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 heaping teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Arrange a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl; set aside.
Place the butter and sugar In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. (Alternatively, use an electric hand mixer and large bowl.) Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the eggs and beat until blended. Add the vanilla and beat until blended.
- Turn the mixer off and add the flour mixture. Mix on medium speed just until the flour is mixed in, then turn the mixer to high speed for a few seconds to pull the dough together; it will be chunky. Add the chocolate chips and beat on high speed to thoroughly and quickly mix in the chips, about 5 seconds.
- Drop the dough by large spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet; don’t flatten them. Bake until lightly browned on top, 10 to 11 minutes. Cool on the pan on a rack for 1 minute, then transfer the cookies to the rack to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining dough.
