The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie

For once, the title does not sell this cookie short.

I had laid out a plan for my weekend at the cottage with Scott, once we had the sod down in the backyard, I was going to make 3 new recipes were in the ever-growing stack of new recipes to try.  This recipe, folks, should be bronzed.  It’s just that good.

Enjoy!  Don’t complain to me if you start to gain weight…

The Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups lightly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups dark chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350.  Lightly spray baking sheet with oil.  In a medium bowl, use a fork to stir flour with baking soda and salt.  In a large bowl, using a wooden spoon or an electric mixer, beat butter with sugar until creamy, about 1 min.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture, until just combined.  Mix in chocolate chunks.

Scoop about 1 tbsp of dough and place on prepared cookie sheet, placing approx 2 inch apart.  Don’t press down; they will spread as they bake.

Bake in centre of oven until cookies are golden around the edges, from 8 to 10 minutes.  Remove sheet to a heat proof surface and leave for 2 minutes.  Then remove cookies to a rack to cool completely.

Makes approx 5 dozen cookies.
