THE Best Chocolate Chip Cookies…

I know everyone thinks they have tried “THE BEST” & I was just as skeptical. However, I decided to try them after reading that they contained sea salt. There was something appealing about the sweet & salty combo that had me set on trying these cookies & I don’t regret it for a second! 🙂 These truly are my favorite chocolate chip cookies & will be the go to recipe around here. Another reason these are a winner is that the dough freezes perfectly. I scoop them onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet & pop them into freezer. Once they are frozen you can place them in freezer bag or container & bake them anytime you want a warm out of the oven cookie!!

THE Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks butter, softened {or one 8oz. package of Kerrygold Irish Butter like I used-yum!}

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

2 3/4 cup flour (spooned & leveled)

1 tsp. sea salt (trust me on this!)

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (Ghirardelli preferred)

Preheat oven to 360 degrees. Cream butter & sugars for 3 minutes on medium speed until light & fluffy. Add eggs & vanilla and beat an additional 2 minutes. In small bowl combine dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt) and mix together. Add dry ingredients to butter & egg mixture and mix until incorporated. Add chocolate chips. On parchment lined cookie sheet, drop dough with medium or large cookie scoop depending on size cookies you’d like. Bake 10-12 minutes depending on cookie size, just until edges are golden brown. Remove from heat and let cool on pan for a minute & then transfer parchment to counter to finish cooling. Again if you’d like to freeze dough, instead of baking- drop on wax paper & freeze balls of dough & bake when ready! Enjoy!
