As promised .. my chocolate chip cookie recipe is :

Cream 3/4 cup of organic cane sugar and 3/4 cup organic brown sugar together with 1/2 # organic unsalted butter ( if you use salted then omit the additional salt from the recipe) on medium speed in your stand mixer( your mixture should be light an fluffy looking).

Beat in 1 large organic egg and 1 tsp bourbon or good quality vanilla-- or both. I 'm a fan of the both version.

In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 3/4 cups Organic All purpose flour, 1tsp baking soda and 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp cinnamon- the cinnamon is the tweak that makes these so yummy. Of course, how can butter sugar four and eggs WITH chocolate be bad? RIght?

Turn your mixer to low and add all the flour mixture and mix for a few seconds until the flour is barely incorporated. You can mix in the dry bits by hand .. your wooden spoon has been just waiting for this moment!! To further your upper arm work out- add 2 cups of good quality chocolate chips. I like a mixture of bittersweet, milk and white .. but sometimes when the mood to bake cookies is upon you and you only have semi- sweet .. you go with what you have on hand.

Using an ice cream scoop or spoon - scoop out even portions of cookie dough onto your rimmed cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner. Chill the cookies in the freezer for 1/2 hour or in the refrigerator for an hour.

I make double batches and freeze portioned out cookie dough so I can bake some quickly when a cookie attack comes on. The trick is to not eat the cookie dough before it gets into the oven.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees f .. and bake for approximately 10 minutes. They should light gold on top and a little darker around the edges. Your kitchen should be smelling pretty fabulous right about now!!!

Let the cookies cool for a bit in their pans( on a rack) then remove to a rack to finish cooling.. go ahead and grab one of those cookies after you pour yourself a glass of cold milk. When the chocolate is still gooey inside is when they are yummiest.

Share the love.. happy baking!!
