Chocolate Chip Cookies

Jump to Recipe

Are you in the mood for some delicious chocolate chip cookies? Then it is the best recipe you will find. It is an easy recipe and quick to prepare. But the most important part is the cookies !! They are great! Soft and crunchy at the same time and as healthy as they could be since you will make them on your own!

Use any type of chocolate you want, couverture, milk couverture, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, or even chocolate with nuts. For me, it works best to combine two different types of chocolate in my cookies.

Serve them with a glass of milk, hot chocolate, or a cup of coffee. Store them in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to a week.

However, if you want you can freeze the cookies in your freezer before baking them. This way you can enjoy the best soft chocolate chip cookies at any time. You’ll find more information and instructions in the NOTES below.

Recipe

Yield: 10 cookies

Prep Time: 20 min

Cook Time: 12-15 min

Total Time: 35 min

Ingredients

140 gr all-purpose flour, ( 1 1/4 cups)

1/4 tsp baking soda

50 gr couverture, roughly chopped

50 gr milk couverture, roughly chopped

75 gr unsalted butter, room temperature, ( 5 tbsp)

75 gr brown sugar, ( 3/8 cup)

35 gr granulated sugar, ( 2 1/3 tbsp)

a pinch of salt

1 medium egg, room temperature

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, set it to the fan mode, or conventional heating.
  2. In a mixer bowl add the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, and mix with the paddle attachment on high speed, for 3-4 minutes, until fluffy. (You can also use a hand mixer)
  3. We are not going to use the mixer anymore so remove the bowl from the mixer, add the egg, vanilla, and mix with a silicone spatula for 2 minutes until smooth.
  4. In another bowl add the flour, baking soda, chocolate chips, and mix softly with a silicone spatula.
  5. Add the solid ingredients of the second bowl in doses to the first bowl with your liquid ingredients and mix with a silicone spatula until the ingredients are homogenized. (Don’t overdo, mix just for 1-2 minutes)
  6. Use a spoon (or an ice cream scoop) to scoop out the dough and give a shape to your cookies.
  7. Transfer them to pans with parchment paper. Leave a lot of space between them because they will spread out in the oven. Do not push them with your hands, We don’t want them to be flat before baking! In addition, you may need more than one baking pans, depending on the size and quantity of your cookies.
  8. Bake each baking pan for 12-15 minutes. Let them cool until set and serve. When you take them out of the oven they’ll be too soft.
