Holiday Baking - The BEST Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER

Posted On: 12/15/2017
The holiday season is a perfect time for baking, whether you're making holiday bread, cookies, pies or other goodies. This season, release your inner cookie monster and get your kids involved. Try this wildly-popular chocolate chip cookies. Crisp edges, chewy middles and so, so easy to make.


(for 12 cookies)
* ½ cup sugar
* ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
* 1 teaspoon salt
* ½ cup butter, melted
* 1 egg
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
* ½ teaspoon baking soda
* 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate chunk, or milk chocolate
* 4 oz dark chocolate chunk, or your preference

1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the sugars, salt, and butter until a paste has formed with no lumps.
3. Whisk in the egg and vanilla, beating until light ribbons fall off the whisk.
4. Sift in the flour and baking soda, then fold the mixture with a spatula, being careful not to overmix too much. This will cause the gluten in the flour to toughen which will result in cakier cookies.
5. Fold in the chocolate chunks evenly, then chill the dough for at least 30 minutes. For a more intense toffee-like flavor and deeper color, chill the dough overnight. The longer the dough rests, the more complex its flavor will be.
6. Scoop the dough with an ice-cream scoop onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, leaving at least 4 inches (10 cm) of space between cookies and 2 inches (5 cm) of space from the edges of the pan so that the cookies can spread evenly.
7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges have started to barely brown.
8. Cool completely, and enjoy!
