Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s been a long hiatus and it’s good to be back. Ever since we moved downtown I feel as though I haven’t had as much time to bake as I used to. I kept coming up with excuses such as not having time after work or being too busy during the weekends to do so. Ultimately I think I just got lazy. That’s when I decided to get back to the blog as that was when I was most motivated to bake because I enjoyed taking pictures of my creations and sharing it with others.

The last creation I made was chocolate chip cookies and it was quite the hit! I remember having an itch to bake something sweet and seeing as what I already had in the pantry, one of the things I could easily make was chocolate chip cookies. It took me less than 30 mins to make and the result was chewy but soft cookies as that is how we prefer them.

The recipe I’m about to share with you is a personal favourite. You can adjust the baking time depending on whether you want your cookies to be on the crispier side or the softer/chewier side. The thickness of the cookies will affect the cooking time as well so if you make thinner cookies, they will cook faster and likely be more crispy. If you make them thicker, they’ll be chewier but also take longer as well.

Here’s how it’s done:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 12

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon hot water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and stir in the vanilla.
  3. Dissolve the baking soda in hot water and add it to the batter along with salt.
  4. Stir in flour in thirds to ensure even mixing and that you don't have dry pockets of flour. When all combined slowly stir in the chocolate chips.
  5. Drop the cookie batter by lhe spoonful onto a silpat or some parchment paper
  6. Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned. Adjust baking time according to how soft you want the cookies to be. It's always best to undercook than overcook.
