“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about 3 o’ clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap”
– Robert Fulghum
Soft yet crunchy, chewy cookies loaded with warm melted chocolate chips is a dream come true for anyone because rather than a cookie, this is a dessert which can be classed as a gourmet food on its own. Last week my sister could no more ignore her cravings which led me to bake these beauties.
If you are anyone like me, hate cookies that go flat after baking, then this recipe is for you. It holds its shape perfectly even though the cookie dough is on the wetter side. Talk about cookie dough and it is a thing I can keep eating and no I am not least bothered about salmonella! What is better than chocolate chip cookies? Certainly the cookie dough!
So let us discuss the recipe!
What you need;
All purpose flour – 2.5 cups
Brown sugar – lightly packed, 1 cup
White sugar – 1 cup
Melted butter – 1 cup
Eggs – 2
Vanilla extract – 1 tsp
Salt – 1/4 tsp
Baking soda – 1 tsp
Chocolate chips – 2 cups (I used Hershey’s milk chocolate chips)
How to prepare:
1. Combine both the brown sugar and white sugar in a bowl. Add the melted butter and beat over low-speed until its mixed and creamy.
2. Add eggs and vanilla.to this and beat until its pale in color.
3. Add the all purpose flour, baking soda and salt and beat over low-speed until it is well mixed. The dough will be wet and sticky. Add in the chocolate chips and combine well to distribute the chocolate evenly un the dough. Refrigerate for half an hour.
4. Meanwhile preheat oven to 355°F. Take the cookie dough and scoop them in an ice cream scooper and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place the cookie dough one inch apart. Bake them for 12 minutes. Let cool for 10 mins before transferring them to a cookie jar or serve them warm with ice cream. Yields around 3 dozen cookies. Enjoy!
5. You could freeze the cookie dough by scooping them and placing them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment and covered with cling film. Will stay for around a month if you are lucky and don’t bake them all at once and finish eating them.
I hope you enjoy baking and eating them! It won’t last long though! So addictive.
