Chocolate Chip Bliss

I absolutely love the smell of fresh baked cookies. It warms my home as well as my stomach! Today I made Jacques Torres's famous chocolate chip cookies! 

Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 pound unsalted butter1
3/4 c granulated sugar2
1/4 c packed light-brown sugar
4 large eggs
3 c plus 2 tbsp pastry flour
3 c bread flour
1 tbsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
2 pounds bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats; set aside.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Reduce speed to low and add both flours, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, and chocolate; mix until well combined.

3. Using a 4-ounce scoop for larger cookies or a 1-ounce scoop for smaller cookies, scoop cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until lightly browned, but still soft, about 20 minutes for larger cookies and about 15 minutes for smaller cookies. Cool slightly on baking sheets before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
