Directions To Make The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies-
1 cup salted soft butter **see notes
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp vanilla extract
3 cups all purpose flour
2 large eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cup chocolate chips or chocolate chunks(use less or more as you prefer)
Preheat the oven to 170°C for 15 mins.
In a bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix and keep aside.
In a large bowl add sugar and soft butter. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
Crack one egg at a time and keep mixing.
Add vanilla essence.
Add in the dry ingredients that we mixed earlier.
Mix it to make a wet dough.
Lastly add in the chocolate chips and in my case I added chocolate chunks.
Fold in till well combined.
On a baking try with parchment paper drop 1 tbsp dough 2 inches apart. You can also use an ice cream scooper to measure cookie dough and drop them directly on the baking tray!
Bake them for 8-10 mins.
The cookies will expand while baking. Its quite easy to burn them. So keep an eye after 8 mins. Remove them as soon as the edges turn brown.
**for a more hard cookies bake for an extra 2 mins.
These cookies will be soft after you remove them from the oven. Wait for 2 mins before transferring then to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store in an air tight container.
- Butter needs to be soft. It simply means measure the butter and place on the counter before baking. It will be soft/room temperature.
- Please dont skip the brown sugar. Its the essence of this recipe.
- Use chocolate chips or any chopped chocolate of your choice, dark or milk chocolate.
- Salt in the recipe counters the sweet. Dont skip. If using salted butter then no need to add salt.
- This recipe makes 30 cookies.
