Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chunk Cookie

This isn’t really what my cookies looked like.  This is my depiction of what they might have looked like had they not all been eaten before I thought to take a picture.  This is my basic chocolate chip cookie recipe which I then make chunkier depending on what other ingredients I have on hand.  I’ve also increased the chocolate chips because there’s nothing worse than having a mile in between each chocolate chip.  & the dried cherries?  YUM, totally worth it.

Chocolate Chip (Chunk) Cookies

2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (I use pecans)
1 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
  3. In another bowl beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract until creamy.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Stir in morsels and nuts.
  6. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto baking sheets.

Bake for 9-11 minutes (it depends on the size you make them).
