New York Times rated this recipe the best – like truly the best. One thing, however – you must cook them properly! In this edition, since the NHL decided to come back to life and wake up our city, I though, what better way  to show some spirit than with some good eats.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups minus 2 tablespoons of cake flour
  • 1 2/3 cups of all purpose flour or bread flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons of baking soda, powder and coarse salt

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of natural vanilla
  • 1 1/4 lb. of chocolate chips
  • one extra bag of chocolate chips for dunking
  • sprinkles – colours of your favourite team or any combo you love

Directions

1 – sift flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt together – set aside
2 – cream the butter and sugars together – about 5 minutes
3 – add the eggs in one at a time
4 – add the natural vanilla
5 – on the low speed on your mixer, add the dry ingredients slowly
6 – stir in the chocolate chips by hand, as to not break them

Set the oven to 350 degrees. Roll the cookie dough into small golf ball size cookies. Place on a baking sheet that is either non-stick or has parchment paper on it. Bake for 16 minutes. Be sure to let the cookies cool for about 15 minutes each before you start dunking them – otherwise they will fall apart!

Melt the extra bag of chocolate chips according to the package. I melted mine in the microwave – 2 minutes and then stir to melt the rest.
