chocolate chip cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon milk powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookies

Before starting the process, you need to preheat the oven to 180 °C (356 °F) and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, beat together 1 cup of softened butter with one cup of packed brown sugar and one cup of white sugar. Beat this mixer until creamy. Beat in two large eggs until smooth. Then add 1/4 tsp salt and one tbsp spoon vanilla extract.

Add creamy mixture, one teaspoon of baking soda, and three cups of all-purpose flour one cup at a time stir until just combined. Finally, add two cups of chocolate chips and stir until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.

Scoop the dough with an ice cream scoop into a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, leaving at least 5 cm(about 2 inches) of space from the edges of the pan so that cookies can spread evenly.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 9-10 minutes or until the edges have started to barely brown.

After baking, let them rest on the baking pan for 2 minutes before removing them to a cooling rack. Make sure to cool it completely before serving.

Tips for Making the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Make sure to soften the butter early by putting it out of the fridge for at least an hour before baking so that it’s ready to go when you need it.
  • You can keep the butter in the microwave for about 5-7 seconds but be very careful so that the butter does not melt.
  • You can make sure to measure flour by scooping it into a measuring cup and leveling it with a knife.
  • How to test if your baking soda is active: Combine 2 cups of hot water, 1 teaspoon vinegar, and 1 tsp of baking soda. When you add the baking soda a reaction should take place immediately. If yes, you can use it, and if not, then you need new baking soda.
  • You can use chunks or chopped chocolate instead of chocolate chips.
  • Don’t overbake when you put out the cookies from the oven they will still look doughy, not crispy cookies. So, I request you, do not overbake.
