Friday Cookie Day - Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every Friday here at Immortal Dog is "human cookie day". We always have snacks and cookies in the store for the pups I thought what a great way to treat my customers. It has worked so well that some of my customers have decided to shop on Fridays so they can get a cookie. 

Every week I search for a fun new cookie or opt for a classic. This week I went for the classic - Chocolate Chip. I decided to use the recipe off the back of the package of the Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips. When I am picking up chocolate chips I often ponder which brand to use. Do I buy what is on sale? Do I buy what I like? Do I try something new? I opted for the Ghirardelli Bittersweet and Semi Sweet chips last time. They look so much fancier than Toll House just by the way they are packaged. I have really been in to bittersweet the last few months. They give a more "grown up" taste to the cookie. The Ghiradelli Bittersweet chips are also bigger which I like. 

This recipe came right off the back of the bag. I used 1/2 bittersweet and 1/2 semi sweet. I also added over a cup of toasted chopped hazelnuts. 

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 4 dozen cookies
  • 1/4 cups unsifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 bag Ghirardelli Chips
  • 1 cup nuts chopped (optional)

Heat oven to 375ºF.

Stir flour with baking soda and salt; set aside.

In large mixing bowl, beat butter with sugar and brown sugar at medium speed until creamy and lightened in color.Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time. Mix on low speed until incorporated.

Gradually blend dry mixture into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

Drop by tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.

I have to say that I really liked these cookies and so did my customers. They have a nice brown butter flavor and remained chewy. They are very rich with the chocolate and the hazelnuts. I do think if you are in the mood to make a chocolate chip cookie these are worth trying and go bittersweet!

Note - I talk about/review products I love. I do not receive compensation for any name brand product I mention.
