cinnamon chip cookies

guys. i have a major problem. what you’re about to see is likely the tenth batch of cinnamon chip cookies i’ve eaten this winter. not that i’m getting married in a strapless, sleeveless wedding dress in the next few months or anything… but how long do you have to spend on the elliptical to burn these babies off???

the chef has a million recipes for a million different desserts, but in my opinion, you just shouldn’t mess with a classic. if imitation is the most sincere form of flattery — our kitchen has been singing the praises of martha stewart all winter long.

this is her recipe for the perfect chewy chocolate cinnamon chip cookie.

cookies1

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature 
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 2 cups cinnamon chips
