Standard Baking Co. Giant Chocolate Chip CookiesPosted by Cupcake Kelly on Jun 10, 2014 in Cookies, z | 1 comment
Just over one year ago I went to visit my sister in New Hampshire. At the time I was still living in London so it was a special vacation. At the time I didn’t know that a few months later I’d be living just a few hours away.
On the second trip we stopped at The Standard Baking Co for cookies and iced tea. It must have been about 90 degrees outside that day. In a gift shop around the corner I saw they had their own book. I picked up a copy on a whim.
I’ve made two recipes from it now. With all the moving chaos I forgot that I had bought it. The blueberry shortcakes were amazing and after tasting the chocolate chip cookies I know that Standard Baking Co is definitely one of Maine’s best bakeries. The edges are perfectly crispy and the center soft and gooey.
2 3/4 cups AP flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup + 1 tbs granulated sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 eggs, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter for 5 minutes until creamy. Add in the sugars and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.
- Add in the eggs and the vanilla and beat until incorporated. Add in the flour in three batches with the mixer running on low.
- Take two scoops of dough to make 2 inch balls. Drop 6 balls per tray and bake for 16 minutes, rotating the tray half way through. Place on a wire rack to cool.
