New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft and chewy in the middle, nice and crispy on the edges. Heaven on Earth!

Prep
Cook
Serves 18people
Ingredients
2
cup minus 2 tablespoons (8 1/2 ounces) cake flour
1 2/3
cups (8 1/2 oz) bread flour
1 1/4
tsp baking soda
1 1/2
tsp baking powder
1 1/2
tsp coarse salt (I used sea salt
1 1/4
cup unsalted butter (2 1/2 sticks
1 1/4
cups (10 oz) packed light brown sugar
1
cup plus 2 tablespoons (8 ounces) granulated white sugar
2
large eggs
2
vanilla extract
20
bittersweet chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet
extra chocolate chips, optional
sea salt (optional
Directions
1.
Sift together the dry ingredients (flour through salt). I just scraped mine through a fine strainer/sieve since my sifter isn't all that great. Set aside.
2.
Use an electric mixer to combine the butter and sugars- mixing until the mixture is very light, about 5 minutes. Mix in the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla. Reduce the speed to low, add the dry ingredients and, mix just until the dry ingredients are incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips. Place the dough in an airtight container and refrigerate a minimum of 24 to 36 hours before baking (and up to 72 hours).
3.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.
4.
For 5-inch cookies, scoop six 3.25 ounce mounds of dough- giant golf ball-sized (I rolled mine into balls) onto a baking sheet, spacing them evenly apart. Don't try to fit more on the sheet or you'll end up with cookies baking into each other. Dot some extra chocolate chips on top, if desired. Sprinkle each ball of dough with a small pinch of sea salt, if desired.
5.
Bake until the edges are golden brown and the center is lighter and soft, 18 to 20 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a rack and let them cool completely. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough.
6.
Tips:
7.
*If you'd prefer to make smaller cookies, shape your cookie dough into small golf ball-size instead (2 ounces), and bake for 15 to 18 minutes.
