I've baked chocolate chip cookies since I was a kid. Back then, the entire family would start "drifting" toward the kitchen as the oven was completing its duty.
Having baked 200 to 300 batches of these in the last couple of years (I baked them for a social table at church); I've modified the recipe again. Because I'm an engineer, I've tried to describe the process is such a way as to make it repeatable, where anyone can duplicate these.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
1 cup white sugar
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar (300 grams)
1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons real vanilla
2 sticks (8 ounces) real butter
3 1/2 cups white flour (420 grams)
6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
11 1/2 ounces Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips
2 large eggs
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Soften the two sticks of butter (8 ounces) in the microwave oven.
