Guittard Chocolate Chip Pan Cookies
Update (2015) This recipe for Guittard Chocolate Chip Pan Cookies have become a family favorite! Another recipe for chocolate chip cookies, that became an instant hit, is the Brown Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies which are healthier, but they still pass for mainstream goodness.
2 1/4 C flour (I used unbleached flour and added a couple of extra spoonfuls of flour--I'm not sure if it's the elevation, but generally any chocolate chip cookies I make need a little extra flour to set up, or we just get puddles of chocolate chip wanna-be-cookies)
1 t baking soda
1 t kosher salt
1 C butter (room temperature)
3/4 C white sugar
3/4 C brown sugar (packed)
1 t vanilla
2 C Guittard Milk Chocolate Chips (Look for this brand. Yes, really!)
1 C chopped walnuts (optional) (I opted out.)
Cream butter and both sugars until light, then add the eggs and vanilla and combine. I added the dry ingredients all at once and combined and it worked fine (the original recipe said mix the dry ingredients separately and then add - which does make sense). Last of all, add the chocolate chips and combine. Spread onto a cookie sheet (I used a large jelly roll pan, un-greased, and they came out wonderfully!) Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool and then cut into bars.

These were just right, seriously. Just the right amount of buttery-brown sugar flavor, not overwhelmed by the chocolate. The ingredients simply compliment each other. Get some Guittard milk chocolate chips and try this one out. Please.
