Plain Ole' Chocolate Chip

I don't always make chocolate chip cookies, but when I do, I cool them on old WSJ with articles about Pinterest in them.

I added some red and white sprinkles for Valentine's Day. Awwww.

And since I moved to this higher altitude, I always use this recipe.
It comes from the High Altitude Baking site and they turn out perfect every time!

Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies

ThreeForks Book/Falcon Publishing
This home-size recipe from Letty Halloran Flatt’s recipe book CHOCOLATE SNOWBALL,
is altitude-adjusted for 3500 feet altitude and above; over 9,000 feet, you can cut 1 or 2 tablespoons of butter.
Yield: 12 jumbo (4-inch) or 24 medium cookies.

1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels

Preheat oven to 325°F. In the large bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter with both sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla, then scrape sides and bottom of bowl. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix them into the creamed butter. Scrape bowl. Stir in chocolate.
Line 3 large baking sheets with parchment or oil lightly with canola oil. To make jumbo cookies, scoop dough into twelve (1/3 cup) mounds, 4 to a sheet, 3 inches apart, or scoop smaller cookies by the tablespoon. Bake until cookies are flat and light golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes, depending upon size.

Those look amazing! And I love your cooling paper. You need to post it on Pinterest, of course. :)

Dad says- Cooling on the WSJ gives a distinct flavor. Whether it's the high altitude of your state or not it always enhances. With exception. I've discovered that if a cookie is left on an article having to do with anything in Washington
D.C., democrats, liberals, secularists, public school employees, etc. there is a rank flavor that is well, nuttier than a squirrel turd.
