WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS DISH
To make these cookies, you’ll need butter. Make sure you buy unsalted butter instead of salted butter. Since salted butter doesn’t always have the same amount of salt, you should add your own. If you don’t, your cookie might be too salty.
Also, make sure the butter is at room temperature, which means it’s soft enough that your finger can make a mark in it. It will be hard to cream it if it’s cold.
Sugar: I use brown sugar and white sugar. Brown sugar gives food colour and a delicious caramelized flavours, while white sugar makes things sweet and gives them shape. The cookies stay soft in the middle because of the brown sugar as well.
Baking soda: Check to see if your baking soda has gone bad. If you use baking powder instead, the cookies will taste like cake.
Chocolate Chips—You could also use dark chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips or chocolate chunks from a bar.
HOW TO MAKE COOKIES WITH CHOCOLATE CHIPS
Two pictures that show dry ingredients being mixed with a whisk and then sugar being added to a bowl with butter.
1. Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a medium-sized bowl using a whisk.
2.Using the paddle attachment on a stand mixer, put the butter and sugars in the bowl and mix them together.
3.Here are two pictures that show how to cream butter with sugar and then add vanilla to the mixer. Beat on medium-low speed until the mixture is very fluffy and light.
4. Put in the egg and vanilla. Scrub the sides of the bowl as you beat to make sure everything is well mixed.
5.Two pictures that show flour being added to a mixer and then chocolate chips being added. Use the measuring cup to slowly add the flour mixture while the mixer is on low speed. Mix just until it’s all combined.
6. Add the chocolate chips and mix them in.
7. Use a 1½ tablespoon scoop to make balls out of the dough and put them on a sheet pan that has been lined with parchment paper. You can freeze dough balls for 30 minutes or put them in the fridge with a lid on for 12 to 36 hours.
8. Line up two baking sheets and move the dough between them when you’re ready to bake. Add more chocolate chips and press them down. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. For five to ten minutes, let the cookies cool on the baking sheet. Let it cool down on a wire rack.
How to Make This Recipe Right
- I really think you should use a cookie scoop. All the cookies will bake evenly if you use a cooking scoop to make sure they are all the same size. If you love making cookies, this is a great thing to buy.
- If you mix the cookie dough too much, the cookies will be flat. I stir the chocolate chips in so that I don’t mix them in too much.
- Make sure that the light brown sugar is moist and soft. Don’t worry if your brown sugar has turned hard. I wrote a long post about how to make brown sugar softer.
- Use parchment paper or a silicone mat to line your sheet pan. The cookies bake more evenly in a pan that has been lined. It will also stick and the bottoms will be more brown if you put the cookie dough right on a sheet pan.
- Do not forget to chill your cookie dough with chocolate chips. If you chill the dough, the cookies won’t spread too much in the oven while they’re baking.
- Before putting the cookies in the oven, sprinkle sea salt on them to make them stand out.
