JT's Secret Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 pound unsalted butter
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
2 1/4 cups packed light-brown sugar
4 large eggs
3 cups plus 2 tablespoons pastry flour
3 cups bread flour
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 pounds Jacques Torres House (60 percent cocoa) Chocolate or other best-quality semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 350F degrees
 Combine the sugars and the butter... a mixing bowl with the paddle attachment,  mix until good and creamy

 Scrape the sides often

 Add the eggs but one at a time and make sure to incorporate them thoroughly before adding the next one

 Slowly and gently add the flour, salt, vanilla, baking powder and baking soda

 This is a BIG batch of cookie dough - my poor mixer was sounding old. 

Fold in the chocolate pieces...

...until well incorporated

I used my ice cream scoop twice to make one large cookie.  Bake for 13-15 minutes or until lightly brown, do not overbake

Let cool on pan for a few minutes and then remove cookies to a cooling rack

Give away as gifts but do keep some for yourself and your family

So what does one say when hubby says these are the best chocolate chip cookies he's ever eaten??  

It's a keeper!!!

Hope you're having a GREAT weekend and savoring every moment!!
