Everyone loves a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie. Whether you’re in need of a sweet treat for a party or simply want to indulge in a comforting dessert, this chocolate chip cookie recipe is sure to satisfy your cravings. With a combination of buttery dough and rich, melted chocolate, these cookies are a classic and timeless treat that everyone will enjoy.
To make these amazing chocolate chip cookies, you will need the following ingredients:
– 1 cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter, softened
– 1 cup of granulated sugar
– 1 cup of packed brown sugar
– 2 large eggs
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– 3 cups of all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon of baking soda
– 1/2 teaspoon of salt
– 2 cups of semisweet chocolate chips
Now, let’s get started with the recipe.
1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. This should take about 2-3 minutes.
3. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
5. Stir in the chocolate chips, making sure they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
6. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop rounded balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches of space between each cookie.
7. Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. The centers may still look slightly undercooked, but they will firm up as they cool.
8. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. This will allow them to set before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Now, it’s time to enjoy your freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Serve them warm with a glass of milk or let them cool completely and store in an airtight container for later enjoyment. These cookies also make great gifts or party treats.
