Chocolate chip cookies is one of the first few recipes I made when I started baking. When I first tried I looked for the recipes that are complicated and didn’t give me the out come I wanted. The more I baked them, I realized that chocolate chip cookies should not be made complicated at all. This recipe will show you how to easily make the classic and simple chocolate chip cookies.
Serving: 35-40 cookies
Prep time: 5 mins 20-50 mins baking time
225g Unsalted butter (melted)
3/4 cup (150 g.) Brown sugar
1/2 cup (100 g.) Granulated sugar
2 Medium eggs
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cup (210 g.) All purpose flour
1/2 tsp Baking soda
200g Chocolate chips
- Sift the flour together with baking soda in a bowl.
- Add chocolate chips and mix with the flour mixture. This will prevent overworking the dough and ensure the chocolate chips are mixed evenly.
- In a separate bowl, add brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt and melt butter. Mix well.
- Add 1 egg and vanilla extract and whisk until the egg is mixed in.
- Add another egg and whisk again
- Add the flour mixture and mixed with the spatula until all the ingredients combined, and make sure there is no pockets of flour left.
- Let the dough rest in the fridge for at least 5 hours for better flavor. (I usually rest it for 24 hours for the best flavor, but you can also bake right away.)
- When the dough is ready, preheat the oven at 160 °C. Scoop the dough and place them on the tray at least 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edge looks brownish. After taking out of the oven leave them in the tray for few minutes to set.
The amount of dough depends on the size of cookies you want. But you should also tap the top of the cookie to make it flatter when the dough is larger than a heaping tablespoon size.
