Triple Chip Cookies

This is the second year that I will be donating cookies to the Boston University chapter of my sorority, Alpha Delta Pi. Last year in a news letter I saw that this chapter needed some help during their recruitment. I was willing an eager to help. I volunteered to make them a lot of chocolate chip cookies, I think last year it totaled about 100 cookies. This year I wanted to try out a new chocolate chop cookie recipe and also make them a few other things (you'll see those in some future posts.)

Triple Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar*
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 eggs
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 12 oz bag semisweet choclate chips
6 oz dark chocolate chips
6 oz milk chocolate chips

*If you do not have both kinds of brown sugar you can just use a total 1 1/4 cup of whatever brown sugar is in your cabinet.

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Stir flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl and then add it into the butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop on to an ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by tablespoonfuls or ice cream scoop leave about 2 inches apart for spreading.

Bake around 13 minutes or until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool 1 to 2 minutes on the sheet and then remove to a cooling rack. I made 38 larger cookies.

The original recipe for these cookies can be found here. I was a little unhappy with the final look of these cookies I thought they didn't rise enough in the oven and were a little bit too greasy out of the oven. Overall the taste was great and enjoyed. I can't wait to give these to my local sorority sisters hopefully the cookies will give them the energy to smile and talk to hundreds of college freshmen and sophomores who may want to join Alpha Delta Pi.
