Politics is Delicious

One of Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s top advisors is apparently a genius in the kitchen as well. She brought some chocolate chip cookies to our office last week and they were so insanely good – super thin, crispy and almost toffee-like. We begged her for the recipe and she complied! Enjoy!

2 c. unsalted butter
1 c. sugar
3 c. light brown sugar
4 large eggs
2 t. vanilla
3 1/2 c. flour
2 t. baking soda
1 1/2 t. salt
12 oz. chips

1. Preheat oven to 375.
2. Sift together dry ingredients.
3. Cream butter.
4. Add sugars and beat until light.
5. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
6. Add vanilla and mix well.
7. Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
8. Add chips.
9. Chill dough for 15 minutes.
10. Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheets covered with parchment.
11. Bake 8-10 minutes.
