Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is from the Tri-City Herald. I don’t know the exact date it was published and a google search turned up nothing.

Original Recipe calls for Jumbo cookies, but I prefer 2 1/2 inch cookies

3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup cake flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

 1 1/4 cups sugar

1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar

 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened

2 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

12 ounce package semisweet chocolate chips


Heat oven to 375. 

In medium bowl, combine flour, cake flour, baking soda, baking powder, set aside.

In large mixer bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar and butter. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla. Continue beating; scraping bowl often, until well mixed (1 minute). Reduce speed to low, continue beating, gradually adding flour until well mixed, 2 to 3 minutes. By hand stir in chocolate chips. 

For 2 1/2 inch cookies, drop by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes until light golden brown.


Recipe Adapted – NO SCRAPING AT ALL!

I have recently acquired the gadget of a lifetime for those who bake. It is a blade called the SideSwipe. There is another blade on the market called BeaterBlade but it doesn’t work as well as the SideSwipe. You don’t have to scrape the bowl with the SideSwipe. Making a cheesecake is a snap. Making these chocolate chip cookies took seconds as I didn’t have to stop, scrape and start numerous times. It truly is a miracle blade.


I have no financial connection with this company, but it is one of the best “gadgets” I have ever bought.

    Those sounbs heavy with all of that flour – but I LOVE chewy cookioes, so it’s worth a try !

    (That scraper looks wonderful. I told my Mom about it. She asked if you have to use a different kind for every different mixer ?)

    My recipe is very different from this one.

    Hmmmm, maybe we should have a cookie bake-off, Lizziee ! I’ll make mine – you make these – and we’ll have your hubby do a blind taste test. What do you think ? 🙂

    Hope you two are having a great sunny Sunday !

    Check out the site for the SideSwipe and they will tell you what mixer it will work with. They really aren’t that heavy because of the cake flour and the baking powder and the baking soda. Sure, I’ll do a bake-off – have a recipe for a crispy chocolate chip cookie as well!
