Ridiculous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Why exactly are these cookies ridiculous, you ask?

1. They are easy to make, using just one bowl and your Kitchen Aid (close copy of their recipe).
2. Super delicious: not too flat, not cakey. Just dense & chewy & buttery yum.
3. These take me less than 10 minutes from start to finish (mixing, scooping, freezing)

Found the recipe in my KA manual and decided to give it a whirl when I was short on time. I (of course) changed it up a bit, but let me know what you think if you make them.
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups brown sugar (don't pack)
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla (use high quality)
3 cups flour (sift if you want to)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 bag chips
Cream butter & sugar in your KA. Toss in eggs & vanilla and mix. Throw in dry ingredients all at once and mix until blended. Add chips last & mix until incorporated. This is where I scoop into balls with a cookie scoop. I place cookie balls onto parchment, freeze for a couple hours, then place into ziploc bags or my trusty old Tupperware...I think its intended purpose was to keep celery fresh, but it's a perfect fit in my freezer. When ready to bake, pop out a few or a lot and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until desired "doneness".



  1. They sound yummy! Wish I could have them... I don't do dairy and right now, no chocolate either. Ugh.

  2. How many cookie balls would you say this makes?
    I love doing this and have gotten out of the habit. Thanks for the reminder!
    Will for sure try your recipe.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. It made about 48 small scoop cookies. I read your detergent post yesterday & I am going to be taking the plunge!!

  4. I should break my book out, I tucked it away once I got my Kitchen Aid! Thanks for sharing! Yum!

  5. I just found your blog and I am excited to try these! I love a new chocolate chip cookie recipe! I have a little blog and would love if you would check it out!
