Ingredients

  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (chilled and cubed)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs (chilled)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cold butter on medium speed, about 1 minute. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and mix until incorporated. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix on medium-low speed until the mixture looks separated. Turn off the machine and add the dry ingredients. Mix on low speed just until the dough comes together. Turn off the machine and fold in the chocolate chips by hand using a rubber spatula.
  3. Drop the dough onto a parchment-lined sheet tray in 1-cup mounds. Place the tray in the freezer and freeze for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. Bake straight from the freezer until still slightly under baked in the middle but golden brown around the edges and beginning to brown on top, 20 minutes.
  6. Cool the cookies on the tray for 5 minutes before cooling completely on a wire rack.

    By far our favorite chocolate chip cookies and most requested dessert recipe from family and friends! Instead of dropping by the cupful, we use an ice cream scoop for the perfect sized cookie. We also sprinkle a bit of Himalayan sea salt on top before baking! Amazing still warm! Thanks Giada!

    Giada What is the purpose of using bread flour? What does it do for the texture of the cookie? Thanks

    Cookies is my all time favorite item to make. I have never used bread flour as you have called out on the Vegas cookie recipe. Why have you chosen to use it here and does it create a softer or chewier cookie?
