Mmmmmm, chocolate chip cookies! These are one type of cookie that everyone has their favorite version of…take a moment and think about your favorite version. Are you a crispy edge and soft in the middle type? Or maybe a completely soft and slightly doughy middle kind? Perhaps you like to eat them cold out of the freezer, or you like to zap them in the microwave just until the chocolate chips start melting.
Well, if your response is that you enjoy a chocolate chip cookie that is soft and chewy, and has an amazing brown sugar, vanilla, chocolate chip flavor – this is the recipe for you! I like my cookies soft and I always love a classic. I was very happy to find this recipe from Allrecipes.com. So here it is folks!
Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
From All Recipes
Yield: about 2 dozen 1.5 inch cookies
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
These were about the dough size I used, I tried doing the tablespoon version.
I love my new Silpat. Helps with the cleanup and you don’t have to waste parchment paper. Bakes the cookies nice and evenly too.
Don’t worry – I did make one version the 1/4 cup kind – or maybe it was a 1/2 cup kind. Anyway, here’s the comparison of my regular cookie and my mammoth cookie.
The mammoth one was delicious and oh so soft. I ate the whole thing in one sitting. I’m really doing terribly on healthifying my diet, but I’m doing great on my cookie diet.
Enjoy – you only live once!
