Ever since I’ve began blogging, I’ve always wanted to write a post on chocolate chip cookies. I have been waiting for the perfect recipe! To be honest, these cookies turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Sidath and I were on a mission to make some cookies so we Googled “best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever”. This strategy luckily worked! These cookies were perfect and I am incredibly happy to share the recipe with you!
I’ve always “oohed and aahed” at everyone else’s chocolate chip cookies. Sadly, I never had my own recipe. I’m glad to say that I do now! This recipe will definitely be whipped out for every occasion from now on. Who’s up for a best chocolate chip cookie contest?
- 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 3/4 cups (12 oz) all-purpose flour *If at all possible, please weigh the flour
- 3/4 tsp. smallish-medium coarse sea salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 2 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 360 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until it is nice and fluffy (approx. 3 minutes on medium-high speed ). Add both eggs and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes. Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until cookie batter is fully incorporated. Finally add chocolate chips until well distributed. The cookie batter should be somewhat thick.
Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough or use a medium cookie scoop and plop the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are nice and golden brown. Remove from heat and allow the cookies to stay on the cookie sheet for an additional 2 minutes. Pick up the parchment paper with the cookies still on top and transfer to a cool non-porous surface. Allow the cookies to cool on the paper for at least 3 minutes before serving.
Let me know how they go if you make them. I’m sure you’ll be pleased. It definitely helps when you have amazing company to make them with like I did :) Happy baking!
