Another Chocolate Chip Recipe

Thanks to Deb, I have yet another wonderful Chocolate Chip recipe I will be using. I haven't tried to make this but I will be soon so I will provide you with my variation to this recipe.

Leite’s Consummate Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups minus 2 tablespoons or (8 1/2 ounces) cake flour
1 2/3 cups (8 1/2 ounces) bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
2 1/2 sticks (1 1/4 cups) unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups (10 ounces) light brown sugar
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons (8 ounces) granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons natural vanilla extract
1 1/4 pounds bittersweet chocolate disks or large chips (w/60% or more cacao content)
Sea salt

Sift flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Set aside. Cream butter and sugars together until very light, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined, 5 to 10 seconds. Drop chocolate pieces in and try to incorporate them without breaking them. Press plastic wrap against dough and refrigerate for about 24 hours. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. Scoop out generous golf balls size onto baking sheet. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown but still soft, 18 to 20 minutes.

Welcome to my recipe blog

I just need a place to keep and comment on all of the recipes I find that I love, but forget about when it's dinner time ... or P-A-R-T-Y time.

So this is where I will keep them.

Comments are always welcome.
