Back to Basics – Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Hello Everyone!

No matter how many I eat, chocolate chip cookies never seem to get old. Of course I do love to add oats, cranberries, or even pumpkin but nothing seems to beat a classic chocolate chip cookie.

They are a little indulgence that can be made by anyone with a little time to spare and a working oven, obviously.

Method:

– Set your oven to 375°F and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.

– First mix together your softened butter, vanilla, eggs and sugar until it has a smooth consistency.

– Next mix together your flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.

– Slowly combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well. Be careful not to over mix. When they are combined, add in your chocolate chips. 

– Using lightly damp hands, scoop and roll the dough into small balls. Place appromiately 1.5-2 inches apart on the baking tray.

– Place in the oven and bake for 12-16 minutes, or until golden brown. They should be a little gooey still when you remove them from the oven as they will harden a little as they cool. 

– Transfer hot cookies to a cooling rack to cool.

– Eat and enjoy!!

 

Its kind of funny how some people can just guess on their amounts of ingredients and get it perfect, whereas some people have to measure everything out perfectly (Thats me!).

 Well it turns out that there actually is a science to mastering the perfect cookie.

Here is an interesting article that i stumbled upon on time.com that investigats how little changes within the cookie recipe and preparation can result in completely different cookies outcomes!
