Paradise Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Extra Chocolaty Chip Cookies
I found this recipe when I was teaching Culinary Arts several years ago, but I have NO IDEA where I got it! It's labeled Paradise Bakery and Cafe Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe, and I'm not sure if it really is their recipe, but I know it's a darn good recipe, and it's worth saving. 

If you are a "the more chocolate the better" kind of person, you will love this! My husband isn't a fan of semi-sweet chocolate (double eye roll), so this is not his favorite. But, I say BRING ON THE DARK CHOCOLATE!!! I find this recipe a little saltier than most recipes, which I like, but feel free to cut down on the salt if you don't. 

The recipe makes a good 4 dozen cookies if you use a small portion scoop (about 1-/14" balls of dough). They also freeze really well, you can scoop them onto a sheet pan covered in wax paper and freeze them for 30 minutes, then dump them in a zip lock, and bake however many you want, when you want. Just say no to grocery store cookie dough (JK, but you could totally make a couple batches of these and they would last a while).

I'm going to be homeschooling all three of my girls in the Fall, and my eldest daughter isn't quite on board. I am trying to make lots of plans for her to stay busy and one of them is adding an extra-curricular course in nutrition and cooking. We went shopping last weekend and let her pick out a basic set of her own cooking supplies. She got a nice saute pan, measuring utensils, mixing bowls, and cooking utensils. I let her put them to use this week and make these cookies all on her own. She absolutely loves to cook, she's also very interested in nutrition, I think we are both going to enjoy her course this Fall. I spent a few years teaching safety and sanitation, knife skills, and entry level cooking, it should be like riding a bike!

Paradise Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 36 minutes
Yield: 4 dozen
  • 1 Cup Butter
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2-1/4 Cup Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 12 Ounce Bag Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. I used my stand mixer, if you don't have one, use a hand mixer to cream the butter and sugars. Add in the eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda. Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Then stir in the chocolate chips. Use a small portion scoop if you have one, if not, spoon rounded teaspoons onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 9 minutes. They will look raw in the middle, leave them on the sheet pan for 5-10 minutes to finish cooking as they cool.
