Something I’ve been working on, searching for, and pulling at my hair over, has finally happened.
I’ve found my dream cookie recipe.
Some people dream of finding their dream partner in life. I dream of the perfect chocolate chip cookie.
This may, admittedly, be because I’ve already found my dream dude. But at this point I don’t know which I’m more stoked about, him or this cookie recipe. (Probably the cookie recipe at this moment, let’s be real.)
There are some pretty amazing chocolate chip cookies out there in this world. And while it’s nearly impossible to find “the perfect chocolate chip cookie” there are ways to narrow it down, because honestly, it all comes down to preference.
I, personally, am a huge advocate for thin, chewy, buttery, slightly crispy cookies. They’ve got to have the gooey, chewy inside, and the golden crispy outside. And they always have to be made with dark chocolate chips.
So when I came across this recipe, it was like the sun came out and that feeling when you wake up and realize you have the day off work.
A huge shout out to Georgia from The Comfort of Cooking because you created my dream cookie, and for that I am eternally grateful. (She also has a beautiful blog. I will link the blog and recipe down below!)
Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
(Recipe from: thecomfortofcooking.com)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup dark/semi sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
- In a medium bowl, sift and whisk together flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
- In a standing mixer/kitchenaid with the paddle attachment, beat together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
- Turn down to low speed and gradually add eggs and vanilla extract.
- Slowly add flour mixture and mix until just combined. Do not over mix.
- Gently fold in chocolate chips.
- Roll dough into golf ball sized rounds, place onto prepared baking sheet and press to flatten very slightly.
- Bake for 9-12 minutes. The cookies will continue to bake on the cookie sheet once you remove them from the oven, so even if they look slightly underdone, it’s okay they’ll keep crisping.
- Once removed from the oven, let the cookies sit on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring onto a cooling rack.
Happy eating! x
