Happy Cookies!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am about to present to you, THE BEST cookie recipe EVER!

Husband was "stumbling" one day and came across this recipe.  After the first batch, it went to the top of my chocolate cookie list.  It is very very very chocolatey, you should probably be a chocoholic like moi to enjoy them.  Although husband does not have a huge sweet tooth he loves them, so you should definitely give them a try, he has dubbed them "Happy Cookies".  Like right now, write down the recipe and go to the store, get the ingredients and make them tonight!

I wish that I was amazing enough to have concocted these delicious morsels of heaven on earth.  Although, as long as they are in my life, I am content. 

Happy Cookies

8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups semisweet chunks.

1. Place the butter in a large bowl and cream at high speed until
fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until light and fluffy, about 4
minutes, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs, one
at a time, until completely mixed.
2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt and baking soda. Add to the
butter mixture at low speed until just combined and add vanilla
extract. Beat on medium speed, scraping bowl down, until blended. Do
not overmix.
3. Add chocolate chunks and mix till thoroughly combined. Refrigerate
batter until cold, preferably overnight.
4. Preheat a conventional oven to 350 degrees or a convection oven to
300 degrees, and line several baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop
heaping spoonfuls of batter 2 inches apart on the lined baking sheets
and bake, turning tray once, until golden brown around edges and soft
(but not bubbly), about 9 minutes in a convection oven or 12 in a
conventional one. Cool on a wire rack.
Yield: 36 to 72 cookies, depending on size.

 Small note, I don't refrigerate mine all the time and they still come out perfect!  I have included pictures of a batch I made, I want to have some just writing this post!  Mouth.Watering.Must.Have.Some.

Happy Baking!
