Your Go-to Reward Dessert: Chocolate Chip Cookies
These chocolate chip cookies are my go-to reward dessert whenever I do anything in life. Finished my homework? Cookies! Cleaned my room? Cookies! Took down a corrupted government? You know it, Cookies!
In all seriousness they are probably one of my most requested desserts by kids and adults alike. Crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle with bits of chocolate oozing after each bite, these cookies are a hit wherever they’re served. They also keep fresh for a number of days stored in an air-tight container but if you ever find yourself leaving the lid open by accident and waking up to dry, hard cookies in the morning, never fear! For I have a secret tip passed down from a wise old being called “Google”.
Slip a piece of bread or an apple slice or two (depending on the number of cookies) into the box and keep it closed tightly for a few hours and you’ll find brand new perfectly moist cookies waiting for you.
Although they are best when warm from the oven, they can be microwaved to match their earlier splendor as well. Take care to finish the microwaved ones completely though, as heating them up more than once will cause them to dry out.
Without further ado, let’s get to the recipe!
§ 100 grams of butter (1 stick or ½ cup)
§ 1/3 cup brown sugar
§ ¼ cup caster sugar
§ ½ tsp vanilla extract
§ 1 egg, beaten
§ 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
§ 1 tsp baking powder
§ ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
-Preheat the oven to 375° F or 190° C. Lightly grease your baking sheet or cookie tray.
-Whip the butter and sugars together until pale and creamy and moving towards mousiness, scraping the bowl as you go.
-Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix until thoroughly mixed together.
-Sift in the flour and baking powder and make sure they are well combined with the rest of the mixture; the cookie dough should resemble soft ice-cream in appearance at this point.
-Fold in the chocolate chips and take care that they are spread evenly throughout the cookie dough.
-Place tablespoons of the dough on the prepared baking sheet, spaced well apart.
-Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for a few minutes.
To make sure your butter and sugars are well combined, take a little bit and rub it between your fingers. If you can no longer feel sugar granules then you have reached the desired consistency.
