Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is my all-time favorite recipe for the softest, chewiest, dreamiest, hands-down best chocolate chip cookies.
Servings: 11 big sized cookies
- ½ cup or 115 grams butter softened completely to room temperature
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 6 tbsp white granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1½ cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 cup chocolate chips or morsels
- ¼ cup grated dark chocolate optional
Combine the dry ingredients
Cream together the butter and sugars
Using a separate mixing bowl, either with a stand mixer or a hand mixer, cream together the softened butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar on medium-high speed until the mixture is light and fluffy and a pale yellow color, about 2 minutes.
Add egg and mix on medium-speed until combined, about 1 minute.
Add in the dry ingredients and beat on medium-low speed until just combined.
Using a spatula or wooden spoon, mix in the chocolate chips and grated dark chocolate by hand until they are evenly combined. NOTE: Do not over work the dough or the cookies will come out hard!
Chill the dough. Transfer the dough to an airtight container and refrigerate it for 10 - 15 minutes.
Pre-heat oven at 190°C and prepare baking tray with parchment paper.
Remove cookie dough from the refrigerator and scoop out with ice cream scoop and place them on a baking sheet that is covered with either parchment paper
Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until the edges are slightly crispy and the tops of the cookies are very lightly golden or top feels firm when lightly touched. Bake 1 sheet at a time if doing it by batch. NOTE: For small cookies bake only for 8 - 10 minutes
Remove the cookies and let them cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling. Serve and enjoy! Bon Appetit!
Feel free to add in:
- Nuts: Chopped pecans, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, pistachios, and/or macadamia nuts are also delicious add-ins.
- Sprinkles: Toss in a handful of colored sprinkles if you’d like to make these cookies extra festive!
