Stand Mixer Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love my kitchen aid stand mixer, it's one of the best additions to my kitchen since the food processor. But seriously, who knew it was so flippin easy to make cookie dough when you have one of these around? I'm not sure if knowing this is a good thing or a bad thing, yet, but for now I'll take it! This recipe comes from the Mixer Bible which I immediately ran out and bought after getting the mixer. Although they don't sink in the middle these cookies are extremely tasty and soft baked. Mmmm, mmmm!

  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt.

Place butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in the mixer bowl. Using the flat beater mix on speed 4 until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla, mix until combined. Reduce speed to stir and mix in flour mixture in 3/4 cup increments. Turn off mixer and stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake about 10-12 minutes or until golden around the edges but soft in the middle. Enjoy!
