My three year old son was craving for cookies yesterday and since I was too lazy to drive to the store, I checked our pantry if I have ingredients to make chocolate chip cookies and thank goodness they were all available. I decided to make a soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies.
This recipe requires chilling of the dough, so the preparation time takes a little bit longer. But the wait is worth the wait when you finally have your first bite of your cookie! But if you do not have time to chill the dough, that is okay as well. It’s just that the taste will not be as rich compared to the chilled dough. My son loves it. This is definitely a toddler approve recipe! 🙂
Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Cooking time: 9 mins
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt.
3. In a large bowl, beat the butter, vanilla extract granulated and brown sugar until creamy.
4. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then mix in dry ingredients until combined.
5. Stir in semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks. Chill the dough for at least 2 hours.
6. Scoop 1 or 2 tablespoon/s (depends on how big you want your cookies) of dough onto the cookie sheet.
7. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
I used the Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Do NOT skip chilling your dough! This will make your cookies to have a pronounced flavor.
