heavy-dutyKitchenAid because it’s not going tohold a regular mixer is just not goingto do it so in my KitchenAid I have apound of butter that’s four sticks apound of butter and it’s softened soit’s been mixing in here in this bowl Ihave two cups of dark brown sugar and Ihave one-and-a-half cups of granulatedsugar so I’m going to put that in heremake sure your dark brown sugar ispacked down so you get the right amountso that’s going in there and I’m goingto cream these sugars and buttertogether so we’ve got that going herethe next thing I’m going to do is add assoon as this kit gets creamed in thereI’m going to add two tablespoons ofvanilla extract one of the things I hadplanned on doing this Christmas was tomake vanilla extract I haven’t gottenaround to it so we’re gonna use thevanilla extract from the store so let mego ahead and make sure I get all thisincorporated here we’re going to get thebutter and those sugars nice and mixedup and let’s go ahead and do this makesure that your

thing we’re going to add threeeggs we’re going to make sure they’relarge eggs so they’re going right inthree large eggs now my good friend DaveMontgomery gave me some beautiful eggsfrom his farm the other day the problemwas they’re a little bit smaller so makesure your eggs are large you’re going toneed more moisture for this cookie doughso after that we’re going to add sixcups of all-purpose flour use a goodall-purpose flour so you’ll have a goodresult with your cookies so that’s allincorporated I’m going to do it a littlebit at a time I don’t want to put it allin this is a lot of Joe today so sixcups of all-purpose flour these are mygo-to cookies I love them the nice thingabout this chocolate chip cookie is Ican take it and wrap it up in plasticand then I can freeze that joke it’lllast in my refrigerator for a coupleweeks but when I freeze itI it’ll last for a couple months so thisis nice I can make a giant batch likethis and keep it and be ready to use itwhenever I need it I have used thiscookie dough to make large cookies likebirthday cookies birthday cake cookiesand it just is really good now tell youthe background story about how I gotthis recipe we were living in Californiaand we joined a group that would babysitit was a babysitting co-op basically andso during this time we shared recipesand thisone lady that shared this recipe wasjust fabulous and we went crazy when thefirst time we ever tasted them so youcan hear the the mixture getting alittle a little testy there it’s goingto get even testier here a few minutesbecause we’re going to put a lot ofchocolate in there and a lot of nuts onething I like to do with this dough isadd white chocolate or a mixture ofchocolate and the white chocolatesometimes I’ll leave out the nuts youcan this basic joke can be manipulatedhowever you want and it makes a greatcookie we’re almost done here we’ll justflour 6 cups is a lot but it’s just theright amount for what we’re doing thismakes some dozens and dozens of cookiesso I’m to stop the mixer now and I amgoing to scrape down the sides to makesure I’ve got all of the butter andsugars and everything mixed in thereokay let’s get this baby going againspeak to me your areaso now to get the cookies to do what wewant the oven we’re going to need to addsome salt and some baking soda so I’mgoing to add one and a half teaspoons ofsalt not sea salt
