Way Chocolate Chip Cookies

How much chocolate can you get into one chocolate chip cookie? Probably more than this, but it was still a lot. :)

Stacey's Way Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients:

1c + 2 tbs sugar, organic
1 1/4c brown sugar, organic
2 sticks (1c) butter, halfway melted
2 oz coconut oil, organic
1 tbs vanilla bean paste
2 eggs, organic
2c white flour, unbleached, organic
1.5c whole wheat flour, organic
1/4c cornstarch
1/3c unsweetened Scharffen Berger cocoa powder
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1c semisweet chocolate chips, Guittard
1c milk chocolate chips, Guittard
1c white chocolate chips, Trader Joe's

First, I preheated the oven to 350F. Then I microwaved the butter and coconut oil until the butter was partially melted.  I added the butter and oil to the sugars and then added the vanilla bean paste in my standing mixer.

I turned the mixer on at medium speed until it was combined.  Then I added the eggs and beat it until it was fluffy.

I put all the dry ingredients in the bowl and then put all the chocolate chips on top. I mixed on the "stir" setting in pulses (if you let it go, flour will fly everywhere).  Once just combined, I made 1 3/4" balls of dough and put them on my favorite cookie sheets (these aren't exactly the ones I have, but they're close and still by Wilton) 1.5-2" apart.

I put them into the oven, usually one sheet at a time, on the rack that's just one notch higher than the middle.  I put them in for 10 minutes, rotating 180 degrees at the halfway point, and then removed them from the oven.  Using my temperature gun, I checked the surface of the cookies to make sure they were around 200F.  Then I let them cool on the cookie sheets for another 10 minutes before removing them with a spatula.  The cookie sheets, surface temperature, and letting the cookies cool on the sheets are the keys to cookies that are soft in the middle.
Yummy, yummy, yummy...
