Perfect chocolate chip cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 1 2/3 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt (preferably coarse)
  • 1 1/4 cups unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 20 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (preferably chunks)

Instructions

1 _ Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt into medium bowl. Set aside.

2 _ Using a mixer, cream butter and sugars together until very light -- approximately 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

3 _ Reduce speed to low, add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.

4 _ If time permits, press plastic wrap against dough and refrigerate 24 to 36 hours. Dough can be refrigerated for up to 72 hours.

5 _ When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.


6 _ Scoop 12 golf-ball sized mounds of dough onto baking cookie sheets. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and bake until golden brown but still soft, approximately 15 minutes. Transfer cookie sheet to a wire rack for 10 minutes, then place cookies onto another rack to cool.

7 _ Eat warm, with a big cold glass of milk.
