Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you like chocolate chip cookies you are going to LOVE these cookies. My husband cannot stop raving about them!!! Even this girl, who would usually rather have a nice oatmeal raisin cookie, likes them. Since being pregnant chocolate has become more appealing! Wonder if that will stick around...

The original recipe can be found on the blog Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice. Love the name of her blog. She adds cinnamon to the dough!! I have never seen that before. While the cookies don't taste "cinnamony"you can tell that there is something special about them. Here is my slightly adapted version.

Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies     preheat oven to 375
3 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cups white sugar
1&1/4 cups packed brown sugar (I like to use dark brown sugar in my cookies)
2 large eggs
1 Tbs vanilla extract
4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cups milk chocolate chips
3/4 semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cups white chocolate chips
*It would be fun to try other chips - butterscotch, cinnamon, peanut butter etc*

Cream the butter and sugar together in a large bowl; add eggs and vanilla and mix. In a separate bowl mix all the dry ingredients together. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture in thirds. Stir in the chips by hand. To make these cookies jumbo sized use a 1/4 cup and drop onto sheets about 3" apart. I went the jumbo route and they took about 15 min to cook. I rotated the pans after 7 minutes. 
If you are going the "normal" cookie sized route, make sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly. 
Make sure to enjoy one warm from the oven with a cold glass of milk! I had almond milk, of course :)
