1 lb unsalted butter (4 sticks)2 cups sugar 2 cups brown sugar 3 eggs 3 tsp vanilla extract 5 cups flour 1 1/2 tsp salt 1 1/2 tsp baking soda 1 pkg Callebaut White Callets 1 pint blueberries, washed 1 pint raspberries, washed
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees2. In a very large bowl, combine the butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract3. In a less large bowl, mix the flour, salt, and baking soda4. Mix some of the dry ingredients into the very large bowl, about 1/5 at a time5. When all is mixed together and smooth, stir in the chips6. In a small bowl, roll some of the washed (and still wet) berries in sugar until they are coated7.
