Indulge Your Sweet Tooth with Insomnia Cookies Copycat Recipe

Ingredients: For the cookies: – 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened – 1 cup granulated sugar – 1 cup light brown sugar, packed – 2 large egg – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 2 cups all-purpose flour – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1 teaspoon baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 2 cups semisweet chocolate chip

For the frosting (optional): – 2 cups powdered sugar – 2-3 tablespoons milk – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – Food coloring (optional)

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.   In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until well combined. Stir in the semisweet chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough. Use a cookie scoop or spoon to drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving some space between each cookie for spreading.

Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown and the centers are set. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.

While the cookies are cooling, you can prepare the frosting if desired. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. Add food coloring if desired for a fun pop of color.

Once the cookies are completely cooled, you can frost them with the prepared frosting, if using. Allow the frosting to set before serving.

These cookies are perfect for satisfying your sweet cravings, whether you enjoy them fresh out of the oven or with a creamy frosting on top. With their soft and chewy texture and rich chocolate flavor, they're sure to become a favorite treat for any occasion.
