makes us his favorite chocolate chip cookies. today we're making chocolate chip cookies. this is one of my favorite recipes to make at home with the kids. this is 10-ounces of unsalted softened butter. i prefer to use unsauled butter because it adds a fresher taste. if you want to add subtle which we are in this recipe i'll add it later on. i'm adding 8-ounces of white sugar. 10-ounces of light brown sugar. cream them together. you don't need a mixer. let the kids get involved. scrub up their hands and they can dig right in. just get them mixed together. they don't have to be fluffy. we're not making a cake batter here we're making cookies. add two eggs. just get these mixed in so its hoe moch us in. once again you don't have to incorporate air. we're not making a cake. making cookies. i want this dense. i'm going to set this aside for the dry ingredients one and a
quarter teaspoons of baking soda. one and a half teaspoons of baking powder, one and a half tee spans of sea subtle. basically you just throw all the dry ingredients together, but what i like to do always stir your dry ingredients together with a dry whisk and then sift them. because sifting does not mix your ingredients necessarily. all it does aerate them and remove any foreign particles and now this goes into my sugar mixture. of course you can use a mixer. funner to do it by hasn't. 2 teaspoons of vanilla he can tract. mix this until the dry ingredients disappear and it becomes hoe moch us in. the best part i'm adding 20 ounce ounces of good quality chocolate chips. standard chips that we know this is 1,000 chips per pound there's
also a smaller one which are 4,000 count. there are 10,000 counts. you can take a good quality block of chocolate chock up that yourself for some chunks. it's really your preference. you can even add nuts to this. i like to add pecans. add walnuts almonds mack damian nuts, cashews or add them all. now i'm ready to scoop. i like to use this because it's a portion scoop. it ensures all the cookies will be the same size. most importantly they will bake evenly. you can also roll this into a log put it in the freezer and just slice it off just like the cookie dough we remember buying at the store. pre heat your oven at 350 or 325 for convection. it will be about 12 to 15 minutes depending on your oven or until golden brown. all set and ready to go. ♪ >> and 12 minutes later, there
