Eveys Bestest Chocolate Chip Cookies #Recipe

More than anything else, Evey loves to bake. Every weekend we spend half of Saturday & half of Sunday in the kitchen together, mixing, decorating and cleaning up. Maybe her favourite thing to bake is a batch of chocolate chip cookies – not because they are for her, but because she likes to make them for her dad!

We have tried a few recipes, but this is the one we have settled on, mostly because it is beautifully easy.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups + 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • One tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Two tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of chocolate chips

 Method

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In another bowl combine the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract adding a spoonful of the flour mix as you do, to prevent the mix from separating.
  4. Add the chocolate chips to this mixture and stir until evenly distributed.
  5. Gradually incorporate the rest of the flour mixture.
  6. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes (or up to 48 hours).
  7. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  8. Drop the dough a tablespoonful at a time onto parchment-lined baking sheets 2″ apart.
  9. Bake for about 8 minutes to get a softer, chewier cookie and 10 minutes for a crunchier cookie.
