Who doesn’t love a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie straight from the oven? It’s a classic dessert that everyone enjoys, and for good reason – they’re delicious!
But not all chocolate chip cookie recipes are created equal. Some are too dry, some are too sweet, and some just don’t have that perfect chewy texture.
But fear not, because I have the ultimate chocolate chip cookies recipe that will leave you wanting more.
1. Gather Your Ingredients
Before you get started, make sure you have all the ingredients you’ll need on hand. You’ll need all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, unsalted butter (at room temperature), granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and chocolate chips. Pro tip: use high-quality chocolate chips for the best flavor!
2. Mix the Dough
Start by combining the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and whisking them together. In a separate bowl, cream the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until it’s light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, and mix until everything is well combined. Slowly add the flour mixture, mixing until the dough comes together. Finally, stir in your chocolate chips.
3. Chill the Dough
This step is crucial for getting that perfect chewy texture. Cover your dough and chill it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours if you have the time. This allows the flavors to meld together and the dough to firm up, resulting in the perfect texture.
4. Bake the Cookies
Preheat your oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, form the dough into balls about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the centers are set. Let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once your cookies have cooled, grab a glass of milk and dig in! These cookies are soft, chewy, and full of delicious chocolate chips. They’ll be sure to satisfy any sweet tooth.
The perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe is all about balance – the right amount of sweetness, texture, and flavor. With this recipe, you’ll have all three in spades.
