Chocolate chip cookies have always been a favourite, especially fresh out of the oven! My family prefers dipping them in milk for the best treat. These cookies have a crisp outside and, soft tender inside. The flavour is the perfect balance of sweet cookie with plenty of chocolate. Quick and easy to make, and they never last long!
2/3C of butter, softened
1/2C Brown Sugar
1 1/2C Flour
1tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
6oz Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 375F.
Start by beating the butter until it is fluffy, then add both sugars and cream together.
Next, add your egg, then vanilla and mix until blended. I keep my mixer going and add in the baking powder and salt. Once combined, I slowly add in the flour to help it mix in well, without it splashing out of the bowl.
When the ingredients are well combined, I start adding in my chocolate chips. You can add a little more or a little less depending on what you prefer. Semi Sweet work the best, but Milk Chocolate chips can be quite creamy and delicious.
Once the chocolate is mixed in, take the dough and using 2 teaspoons, spoon the dough onto your cookie sheet, keeping the cookies spaced about 2-3 inches apart. Push down on the top a little so they aren’t formed to high to help with baking. This recipe doesn’t spread too far, but you still need to give a bit of space in between.
Place in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.
I am never one who is good at keeping track of baking time as I often have a few things on the go at once. The trick with these cookies, is their appearance. When they are done baking, the edges will be a light brown, but the middles do not change colour. They will look dry and not shiny. They may seem like they aren’t quite done, but don’t misjudge them. Let them rest for a minute on the cookie sheet, then remove and cool. Catching these cookies at just the right point keeps them soft on the inside.
Once cooled, enjoy! I always double or often triple this recipe as following the directions will only give you about 18 cookies and that is not near enough with how good these taste!
