CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES 4         > Back to Top <

2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons vanilla
6 cups pre-sifted flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
32 ounces chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat eggs for 4 to 5 minutes and set aside. In mixer, combine butter, sugars, and vanilla. Mix on medium speed until creamy. Mix in beaten eggs.

Mix dry ingredients well. Add dry ingredients to the wet. Mix only until flour is mixed in and no longer white. Using a spatula, mix in chocolate chips. This is a huge amount of cookie dough.

Tip for frozen dough: Place on baking sheet and allow to thaw at room temperature before baking, or bake frozen but do not preheat the oven.
