The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I made these cookies as a child and  I continue to make them now for my kids.

It started off as a recipe off  a bag of ‘Hersheys Semi Sweet Chocolate Chip’ and I have seen similar recipes ; I guess the base recipe is the same. I find most cookie recipes to be too sweet.  My quest for a chewier crumb and a slighlty less sweet cookie formulated into the following. They are  the most delicious chewy chocolate chip cookies ever!

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe



Ingredients:

  • 2¼ cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 stick(½ cup) butter(I use salted)
  • (If using unsalted butter please add ¾ tsp salt to the flour)
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar,firmly packed
  • ¼ cup  regular sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups semi sweet chocolate chips (more if you like)
  • ½ cup chopped pecans(optional)

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe




Method:

  • Preheat your oven to 180ºc.
  • Sift the flour with baking soda and( salt if using unsalted butter) into a wide mouth bowl ; I like to sift 2 times.
  • In a mixer / processor with whisk attachment, or using hand held mixer beat the butter , sugars and vanilla extract till nice and fluffy.
  • Proceed to whisk in the eggs one at a time.
  • Now fold in the flour by hand with a spatula till incorporated.
  • Then fold in the chocolate chips and nuts (if using).
  • Drop heaped spoonfuls of batter on to a baking sheet lined tray, evenly spacing them so they don’t flow into each other.
  • Bake around 9 minutes on middle rack of oven. Leave in oven for 2 minutes to cool.
  • Lift the baking sheet onto kitchen counter to cool for a while and when cool enough to handle, transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Note:

  • These are very simple to make.
  • I like to store them in a cookie jar or tins.
  • Try heating them for a change in the microwave for just a few seconds to melt the chocolate ever so lightly and provide a yummy warm cookie with a glass of cold milk!!
