There is no such thing as JUST a chocolate chip cookie….
EVERYONE has something a little different in mind when it comes to their preferences in chocolate chip cookies. Sea salt chocolate chunk? Gooey extra thick and studded with Callebaut semi-sweet chocolate chips?
Even at home there is no consensus….
WIFE: SOFT BUTTERY THICK THICK THICK CAKE like cookies with a very sensible ratio of semi-sweet chocolate chips to cookie peeking out from under billowy tops. No sea salt of any kind…full stop.
ME: Copious amounts of bittersweet chocolate with a chewy salty sweet thing going on. No cakey cookies.. no billowy tops and GIMME THE SEA SALT!
There is also the PERFECTLY THIN and PERFECTLY CRISP cookie with crispy edges a chewy center and just the right amount of chocolate chips.
I have several versions of chocolate chip cookies I can make but this one is definitely a favorite. It’s easy to make and cranks out 9 super buttery soft chocolate chip cookies. If you want the chips to maintain their shape and have that classic cookie look then always use Nestle Toll-house chocolate chips.
A few tips before you begin…
- Melt the butter in the microwave for 30 to 40 seconds. The butter should be melted but NOT hot.
- The dough should not be sticky. If it is sticky add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time until you are able to roll the dough into a ball in your hand and it feels smooth
- Use a small cookie scoop to measure these out onto the cookie sheet.
- do not over-bake as they will finish baking on the hot cookie sheet when you pull them from the oven.
Do you really want me to bore you with pictures? Maybe a few but just for fun as these are easy to make.
This is but just the beginning of the Chocolate Chip Cookie road. I have plenty more versions to share.
