Food Something Sweet

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!!!

In case you didn’t know, my husband and I both have a sweet tooth. That being said, we don’t keep any sweets or “junk food” at home. Why? It’s quite simple really. I’m not a fan of premade or prepackaged food. I know it’s pretty much impossible to do EVERYTHING from scratch, but I try to avoid buying anything premade or prepackaged as much as I can. My husband doesn’t completely agree with me on this, so we have a deal. When he’s craving something sweet, like cookies for example, I always make sure to have all the ingredients at home so I can make him something. I don’t mind really, since I LOVE to bake. My dream would be to one day quit my corporate job so I could write and bake all day. Who knows, maybe one day I will. Until then, I will share with you my best recipes, starting with chocolate chip cookies, because who doesn’t love cookies?

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 Cup of Butter (room temperature so it’s easy to mix)
  2. 1 Egg
  3. 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  4. 3/4 Cup Granulated White Sugar
  5. 1 Tbsp Vanilla (I use 2 Tbsp since I love vanilla)
  6. 1 1/2 Cup of Flour
  7. 1 tsp Salt (I use Fleur de Sel for that extra crunchiness, but regular salt does the trick also)
  8. 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  9. 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  10. 1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips (you can use semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips also if you prefer)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees
  2. Mix all the ingredients together except the chocolate
  3. Add chocolate chips at the end and stir until well combined
  4. Form tablespoon size balls and put on a baking sheet. Make sure to leave enough space in between each ball so when they bake, they don’t stick together. If you have extra dough left, you can refrigerate for about a day or two or freeze them.
  5. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. It depends on how fast your oven bakes. My cookies are usually done at 11 minutes. The trick is as soon as you see your cookies are starting brown on the edges, you take them out. They might look like they are under-baked, but if you want them to be nice and moist, then that’s the trick.
  6. Leave them to cool for about 5-10 minutes so they can harden a little bit. Enjoy immediately!
