Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies




Introduction: Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

About: Michael's Test Kitchen - FOOD - SUGAR - RECIPES

These delicious chocolate chip cookies are crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle, full of chocolate chips, and not too sweet.

Serve with a glass of milk, or discard the lactose and enjoy these cookies without the milk, and if you wish to stay away from dairy entirely, then it may benefit you to also discard the butter which is present within the cookie batter, and instead use softened coconut oil, which works quite well as a substitute in many situations.

Step 1: Ingredients


1 ¾ cups flour

1 egg + 1 egg yolk

½ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

¾ teaspoon salt

¾ teaspoon baking soda

2 ½ teaspoons vanilla

1 ¾ cups chocolate chips

1 cup butter, separated

Step 2: Melt It

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Melt half a cup of butter in a saucepan, and stir over low heat until butter becomes light brown.

Step 3: Whip It

Transfer to large mixing bowl and add the softened half cup of butter to it, along with white and brown sugar. Add vanilla, salt, egg, and egg yolk, and whip until light and airy, about 30 seconds.

Let the mixture sit for a minute or so, then whip again for another minute, until more light and fluffy.

Step 4: Flour It

Add in flour and baking soda, and stir until combined.

Step 5: Chocol It

Then stir in chocolate chips.

Step 6: Bake It

Lay the cookies out with a cookie scoop, onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are browned around the edges.

Step 7: Enjoy!

    Isn't Step 3 supposed to be

    Let rest 3 minutes, whisk for 30 seconds. Repeat twice.

    At least it is on ATK.

    But the best thing to do is to portion, then freeze. Have 2 fresh hot cookies a la mode anytime

    Yes, I believe that is how it is on ATK, but this is my original recipe only partially inspired from ATK, since every recipe I post is original :) But yes I borrowed that technique from ATK

    Yeah, I've heard great things about freezing cookies, just haven't tried it yet; they're usually gone before they would be put in the freezer :D I should try it sometime!
