Best Chocolate Chip Cookie RecipePhiladelphia, PA—This is our family's secret chocolate chip recipe. We have a large family, so this recipe makes over four dozen chocolate chip cookies. You can experiment with most cookie recipes to adjust to your own taste. Remember, the more brown sugar you use, the more chewy the cookie you create. I don't think this one needs much adjusting. First, we will start with the ingredients.


4 cups (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
1cup butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups yellow cake mix
One teaspoon of baking soda
Two teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
Four eggs
Two teaspoons of vanilla extract
One 1/4cup sour cream
3 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions to cookie recipe.

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Melt butter and unsweetened chocolate together.
3. Sift cake mix, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together.
4. In a large bowl, beat sugar, eggs, and vanilla.
5. Stir the chocolate mixture into the eggs.
6. Stir in the sifted ingredients with sour cream.
7. Mix in chocolate chips.
8. Drop rounded tablespoonful cookie sheets.
9. Bake until the edges are starting to turn dark brown.

Enjoy these beautiful cookies on any occasion. They disappear very quickly at family events. You might notice my secret ingredient. It is the boxed yellow cake mix. Cake flour gives the cookie a little more body than the regular unbleached flour. You may use any of your favorite brands. If you make smaller cookies, don't forget that the baking time goes down. Many ovens produce heat from the bottom of the stove so as not to burn the bottom of the cookies often; I will double-pan them before I bake them. Baking is similar to a gigantic chemistry experiment. The best way to get the experiment right is to keep experimenting. Once you have found the best combinations of ingredients and procedures, stick with it. Enjoy!
