"New" Old School Cookie

One of the restaurants I used to cook at had an amazing pastry Chef working there. I want to share a trick you can do to add a little pastry style flair to your plain old Chocolate chip cookies.
I call...

"Brown Sugar Choco Chip Cookies"

2 1/4 cups All Purpose Flour (AP)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
1 Cup **SALTED Butter (2 sticks) make sure they are VERY SOFT!! room temp.
1 1/2 cups Dark brown sugar, or whatever kind of brown sugar you have.
1 tsp Good Vanilla extract
2 Large eggs
1 cup Semi Sweet Choc chips
1 cup Milk Choc Chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Method: Combine Flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Separately beat butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract with your mixer until mixture is creamy and lighter in color.  Add eggs one at a time until each egg is totally incorporated into butter mixture.  Add the dry ingredients very slowly about a 1/2 cup at a time to make sure mixture stays moist don't add more dry until each installment is totally absorbed by the butter/sugar mixture.  Lastly stir in 2 cups of chocolate chips after all the dry ingredients are mixed in. Scoop onto a parchment paper lined baking (or greased) sheet tray.  Cook 9-11 minutes depending on your oven.
WARNING!! Don't panic. The fact that we used all Brown sugar and no White sugar will make you think you over cooked them. They will naturally be darker as brown sugar has molasses in it which will caramelize and darken the cookie considerably. Cool and enjoy!

These are great and go very fast!!  Molasses = mega flavor in this Brown sugar cookie.

**Note We used salted butter because of the sweeter milk Chocolate chips.

Enjoy!! I will be posting two french inspired recipe's for dinner tomorrow when I have more time, for now enjoy the cookies!!
