Ultra Thin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love Chocolate Chip cookies and this is my new, favorite recipe. Crispy and thin.

The amount of butter and brown sugar in this recipe makes you want to close your eyes to the calories and fat but the taste? Well, once you’ve tried one you’ll likely not go back to the old Toll House recipe.

·         The added element for tasting? What else but a large glass of cold milk.

Bon Appetit!

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 pound (4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
3 cups packed light-brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees 

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until smooth.

Add the sugars, and beat until combined and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until well blended.

Add flour mixture, and beat on low speed until combined. Add the chocolate chips, and beat until combined.
Drop 1 rounded  teaspoon of batter at a time onto baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.

Bake until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.

Remove the cookies and the parchment paper from the baking sheets, and let cool on a rack.

Yield: 50 4-inch cookies
