I’m not the greatest baker by I love baking. I love trying out new recipes. My husband has about 10 sweet teeth and is always keen on sampling the stuff I bake. A couple of weeks ago Jaymee reminded me of some cookies I have baked over 2 years ago… (I haven’t been baking for quite a while now) and I decided on surprising him over the weekend. I couldn’t remember what recipe I used so I went ahead and searched for one on google and came across 3 recipes and decided on making the 2 easiest ones. Both was quite tasty but everyone had a favourite. Below you can find the recipe and you can also get on directly from the website I found it on.
Chocolate chip cookies….the best ever!
½ cup unsalted butter
¾ cup packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1½ cups semisweet chocolate chips, or chunks
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon fine salt
Preheat oven to 180°C and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.(If you only have 1 baking sheet, let it cool completely between batches.)
Melt the butter in the microwave (or stove top) and whisk in the sugars, eggs and vanilla when cooled until smooth.
Add the flour, baking soda and salt in another bowl. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a wooden spoon; take care not to over mix. Stir in the chocolate.
Scoop heaped tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared pans. Be sure not to place it to close together as it expands quite a bit.
Bake, until golden, but still soft in the centre, 12 to 16 minutes, depending on how chewy or crunchy you like your cookies. Place on a wire rack to cool down and serve.
PS.: The last time I made it I doubled the ingredients and got out about 90 cookies.
Hope you enjoy them as much as my family did!
