Hey there, my fellow baking enthusiasts! Today, we’re diving into the world of irresistible chewy chocolate chip cookies. Trust me, this recipe is a game-changer. So, without further ado, let’s get our hands dirty in the sweetest way possible!
The Perfect Combination of Ingredients
To ensure the ultimate chocolate chip cookie experience, we’ll need to gather our ingredients. As all great bakers know, precision is key. Grab your trusty kitchen scale and measure out two and a quarter cups (or 270 grams) of all-purpose flour.
But wait, there’s more! We’ll also need three-quarters of a teaspoon of baking soda and three-quarters of a teaspoon of salt. Whisk these dry ingredients together to ensure they’re evenly distributed, preventing any unwanted overpowering flavors.
The Butter and Sugar Dream Team
Now, it’s time to elevate our cookies to the next level of deliciousness. In the bowl of your stand mixer, equipped with the paddle attachment, add one cup (or 226 grams) of room temperature butter. Give it a quick cream to get things going.
Next, add three-quarters of a cup (or 150 grams) of granulated sugar and three-quarters of a cup (or 165 grams) of light brown sugar. Brown sugar has that irresistible aroma we all love. Mix this heavenly combination on medium-low speed until it becomes light and fluffy. This should take about five minutes.
The Finishing Touches
Now that our butter and sugars are perfectly blended, it’s time to introduce the star players that will take our cookies to the next level. Crack one large room temperature egg into the mixture and add a tablespoon of vanilla extract (15 ML). Mix everything together until you achieve a homogenous mixture.
Slowly add the flour mixture we prepared earlier, mixing it on low speed until almost combined. We want to see minimal traces of flour remaining before we proceed. At this point, we can finally introduce the real MVPs of chocolate chip cookies – the chocolate chips. Feel free to use your favorite type of chocolate or even chopped chocolate bars.
Stir the mixture on low speed to distribute the chocolate chips evenly, allowing the remaining flour to incorporate smoothly. Take a moment to inspect the mixture with a spatula, ensuring the chocolate chips are evenly distributed and there are no pockets of nonsense.
The Magic of Chilling
Now, here’s a little secret to achieving cookies with the perfect texture and taste: chilling the dough. Cover it up and let it chill in the fridge for at least an hour. Trust me, the longer you let it chill, the better the cookie will turn out. The flavors will harmonize, and the texture will be out of this world.
Time to Bake Some Goodness
Once the dough has had its chill time, preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). Scoop approximately one and a half tablespoon-sized portions of cookie dough onto a baking sheet. If the dough is firm due to the chilling, don’t worry. Simply roll it into a beautiful shape and place it on the sheet.
For that extra touch of beauty, top each cookie with three additional chocolate chips. Pop the tray into the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Keep an eye on the edges – they should turn golden and set.
The Grand Finale
Voila! Look at these beautiful, golden brown cookies, packed with the divine combination of brown sugar, chocolate, and butter. Allow them to cool for a few minutes before tasting one (or two, or three).
