What is Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
Soft chocolate chip cookies are made with brown sugar and butter. They’re soft and chewy, and they have just enough chocolate chips to make them extra delicious. They are easy to make—all you need is a bowl, some ingredients, an electric mixer (or food processor) and patience! The recipe below makes about 2 dozen cookies.
These smooth chocolate chip cookies are the greatest you’ll ever try thanks to a few of my secrets. This chocolate chip cookie recipe has received hundreds of rave reviews from bakers all around the world, and I have no doubt you will feel the same way. The cookie dough must be chilled, and cornstarch makes the cookies extremely soft and thick.
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all, purpose flour (sifted)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined. Add the flour, baking soda and salt, and mix until well combined.
In a medium bowl or food processor (my preference), combine flour/salt/pepper or whatever else you want to add into your dough at this point; don’t forget this step because otherwise it will be hard to get out later! You can also add some nuts if you want something different here too, I personally like chocolate chips mixed into mine but feel free to try something new!
- Bake at 350 degrees for 12, 15 minutes.
- Use a cookie scoop to measure out the dough and form into balls.
- Let the cookies cool on a wire rack before serving, or store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
Pro Tip: cookies are best when they are still warm.
- This is true for all foods, but especially cookies. Your tongue will feel better and more comfortable if you eat them right out of the oven or shortly after roasting in the over until they’re just a little bit soft to your liking.
- Cookies are also best when they’re not too soft or gooey, either! You don’t want to see any pockets of liquid in there—that’s just gross! So make sure that your cookies have some structure (that is, not mushy) so that they’ll stay together while baking.
Add, ins and Variations
- Chocolate chips: While you can use any type of chocolate for this recipe, we recommend using semi, sweet or milk chocolate.
- Raisins: If you’re looking for a sweet kick, raisins are a great option. Just be sure to remove them before baking because they’ll add some moisture and cause the cookies to spread more than usual.
- Walnuts: Another option is walnuts—they will give the cookies more texture and bite compared with other nuts like peanuts or almonds (which might make them harder).
- Coconut flakes: If you want something lighter on your palate but still with crunchy texture, coconut flakes would do just fine! And don’t forget that they’re also naturally sweet so they won’t need any additional sugar added during cooking time either!
Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies is best to serve with
- Ice cream
- Coffee/tea, infused wine (hot chocolate)
