Prep Time:
    20 min
Cook Time:
    15 min
    2 1/2 dozen cookies
    * 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    * 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    * 1 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1 egg
    * 2 ounces milk
    * 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    * 2 sticks unsalted butter
    * 1 cup sugar
    * 1/2 cup brown sugar
    * 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    * Ice cream scooper (#20 disher, to be exact)
    * Parchment paper
    * Baking sheets
    * Mixer
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl. Combine the egg, milk, and vanilla and bring to room temperature in another bowl.
Cream the butter in the mixer's work bowl, starting on low speed to soften the butter. Add the sugars. Increase the speed, and cream the mixture until light and fluffy. Reduce the speed and add the egg mixture slowly. Increase the speed and mix until well combined.
Slowly add the flour mixture, scraping the sides of the bowl until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop onto parchment-lined baking sheets, 6 cookies per sheet. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, checking the cookies after 5 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet for more even browning.
Remove the cookies from the pans immediately. Once cooled, store in an airtight container.

I've been hunting for the perfect cookie recipe, ever since I started making tollhouse cookies back when I was being baby sat at seven years old. That recipe is great, but sometimes too sweet, and the texture is not perfect for me.      I like my cookies crispy around the edges, and chewy in the middle. Not too thick, and not too much chocolate chip to cookie ratio.      This recipe calls for a LOT of butter, but it helps make them extra crisp and melt …
