Jumbo Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes: Makes 30 large or 60 small cookies Prep time: 30 minutes Bake time: 10 to 15 minutes depending on the size of the cookie


1 and 1/2 cups unsalted butter softened

1 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar

1 and 1/4 cups light brown sugar

2 teaspoons best quality vanilla

2 eggs

3/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking soda

4 cups all purpose flour

2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips or chocolate chunks

1 cup milk chocolate chips

1 cup 60 percent dark chocolate chips

1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Note: You can use all of one variety of chocolate chips if you like. I like the depth of flavor using different types of chocolate gives the cookies!



Heat your oven to 350 degrees or 325 degrees if using a convection oven.  Line several baking sheets with silicone baking mats.  In the large bowl of your stand mixer, beat butter and sugars until combined and fluffy.  Add vanilla and eggs and mix until incorporated, scraping down the bowl as needed.  In another bowl, combine all dry ingredients and whisk to combine by hand.  Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture until just combined, being careful not to over mix.  Remember that over mixed batters will cause your final product to be tough and dry.  Slowly mix in the 3 types of chocolate chips. Mix well and place the bowl in the fridge for about 30 minutes.  Depending on the size of the cookie you choose to make, use an ice cream scoop to place the mounds of cookies on the prepared sheets after the dough is properly chilled.    Make sure you leave plenty of room between each mound of dough on the baking sheets.  Flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.  Bake in your preheated oven for 5 minutes for smaller cookies, and 6 minutes for larger cookies, then rotate the pans so they bake evenly.  Bake for another 5-7 minutes depending on how crispy or chewy you like your cookies.  Let the cookies cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to baking racks.  Place in an airtight container or freeze in individual freezer bags for up to a month!
