Cooking with Kelly: Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

Alton Brown, I heart you. Your food is amazing, your shows are inventive and your style is humorous. I was seriously heartbroken when he decided not to continue with Good Eats. I'm almost positive that I've watched every episode and enjoyed many of his recipes.

My favorite recipe so far has been AB's Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. It is amazing - moist, chewy, tender and chocolately. And I'm one who knows my cookies ... I didn't need to start losing weight because I enjoyed vegetables too much.

The only annoying thing about this recipe is that it requires bread flour. I already have whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour in my kitchen and didn't really want to buy another five-pound bag of something, but what Alton says goes, so I bought the damn bread flour. Worth it!
Make these cookies. Now. And give me two.

2 sticks of unsalted butter, melted

1/4 cup white sugar

1 and 1/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 egg white

2 Tablespoons milk

1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

2 and 1/4 cups bread flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix together everything up to the vanilla in a stand mixer on low with the paddle attachment until creamed together. Swift together the flour, salt and baking soda, then slowly add to the wet ingredients. Add the chips and mix to combine. I refrigerated the dough for an hour, then used a large scoop to dish out six cookies per cookie sheet and then baked for 15 minutes in a 350-degree oven. Next time, I will only make one cookie sheet worth, because I ate like six cookies in two days as a result.
