Huge Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies
These bakery-style chocolate chunk cookies come out big and amazing. The key to these cookies are the crushed chocolate chunks. All the little shavings make this cookie unreal. They’re best served right out of the oven with a glass of milk.
Ingredients (makes 4 dozen)
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 sticks (1.5 cups) earth balance, melted
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 egg yolks
2 cups semisweet chocolate chunks, crushed in food processor
1) Preheat the oven to 325˚. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2) Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
3) In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chunks (and fine shavings from food processor) by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough in large tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart, as they spread quite a bit.
4) Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
