Semi Sweet Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies


Every year the day before school starts I bake cookies for Boy Wonder’s  first day of school lunch. This is my go to cookie recipe each year and I believe this is my 12th year baking cookies the Sunday before school starts. I always start with the same base I just change up what sort of chips or goodies I add. For Boy Wonder’s first day of 11th grade I used semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips. Oh, 11th grade where did the years go? 😦

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. This recipe makes at least 9 dozen cookies. 🙂

4-1/2 cups flour

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp salt

2 cups butter, room temperature

1-1/2 cups sugar

1-1/2 cups light brown sugar

3 tsp vanilla

4 eggs, room temperature

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 cups milk chocolate chips

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt, set aside

In bowl of mixer cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar.

Add eggs and vanilla and beat till combined

slowly add flour mixture to mixer and beat until all is combined well

Fold in by hand semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips

Place in 1 Tbsp spoon fulls onto prepared baking sheets (I used a cookie scoop to ensure all cookies were the same size) and bake at 375 degrees 9-11 minutes. Let sit on cookie sheet 1 minute once out of the oven and then place on cooling racks and let cool completely. ENJOY!
