French Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cookies


I made this method of chocolate chip cookies by accident. I blame, or I guess can “thank”, sleep deprivation due to having a teething infant. I was making my usual go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies when I thought the dough seemed a bit dry. I realized that I completely forgot to add the eggs! I have never made cookies where eggs were added at the END (post-flour and all) but was certainly not going to waste all those ingredients…or precious time! I added the eggs at the very end and this resulted in my NEW favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. The taste of eggs is more pronounced (thus the french vanilla flavor) and the texture remains very soft and chewy with slightly firm edges. Accidental perfection.

What you will need

1 3/4 cups 2 Tbsp (8.5 ounces) cake flour

1 2/3 cups (8.5 ounces) bread flour

1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt

1 cup dark chocolate chips

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup walnut halves (measure whole then chop finely; I used a food processor)

1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, cold then melted in microwave 30 seconds

3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed

3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs, whisked lightly
