Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Chocolate chip cookies have got to be the most popular cookie ever! I prefer mine soft and slightly chewy, preferably soon after coming out of the oven, because with lashings of slightly melted chocolate chips... they are absolutely yummy! Here's a mouth-watering delicious recipe from "The Baking Chocolate Tess" blog. They are just how I like them and have a super golden colour so look, as well as taste, amazing! Here's the recipe -
210g All-purpose Flour (see notes below)
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
60g Unsalted Butter (room temperature - see notes below)
60g Light Brown Sugar
6 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
1 Large Egg
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
270g Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray.
In a medium bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt together.
In another large bowl, using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat together the butter, and sugars for approximately 2 minutes until nice and smooth.
Add the egg and vanilla and mix on low speed until all incorporated.
Gradually add the flour mixture and mix in until just incorporated. Do not keep mixing - do not overmix!
Add chocolate chips and stir with a wooden spoon, again no overmixing, just until incorporated.
Chill dough if dough is warm.
Using a small or large ice cream scoop or heaping tablespoon, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, 6 to 8 per pan, depending on size you are making.
Bake the cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until the bottoms and edges are lightly browned and the tops feel firm when lightly touched.
Small cookies bake 8-10 minutes
Large cookies bake 10-13 minutes.
Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes 15 - 30 cookies depending on size.
