Re: The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie
This is what I grew up with, and what I use. I haven't yet found a better recipe.
2 cups butter (or 1 cup butter, 1 cup melted coconut oil)
2 cups white sugar
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
2 cups chocolate chips
5 - 5 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1. Cream butter, sugar, baking soda, and salt. If using coconut oil, cream butter and sugar, then mix in CO. Add eggs and chocolate chips, combining thoroughly. Add flour all at once, and mix very well. Make sure to mix in any flour that is at the bottom.
2. If possible, refrigerate for several hours or overnight, as this improves the end result.
3. Bake at 350F. for 12-16 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your cookies.
