I am a huge cookie monster! Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite. You will definitely find crumbs all over my seat after eating these. It’s just one of those fun desserts that are simple enough to make and easy to eat.
Whenever I feel down, these cookies seem to help me refocus and bring me back to my happy place.
Please try the recipe below and release your inner monster!
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups lightly packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
In another larger sized bowl mix the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy.
Then add the vanilla and eggs to the creamy mix.
Slowly mix in the dry ingredients until well blended.
Finally, blend in the chocolate chips.
Cover the dough, and let it sit at room temperature just until it is soft enough to scoop.
When soft enough, scoop up 2-tablespoon sized balls using a cookie scoop or tablespoon and drop onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
The cookies should be a little thick, soft in the middle, crisp around the edges.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. Please let me know how it goes and it your inner cookie monster was set free.
