Recipe: The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Have you ever eaten a cookie and hafway through, it caused you to contemplate your life because you knew that nothing could ever top that moment?

Your wedding? Na. Huge promotion? No way. First born? Shmirst born. This moment, this bite of cookie, is the reason for your existance.

Ok, a little much. But we’ve all had that moment and I’m certain it’ll happen for you with these.

See those ridges on the edge and in the middle? That’s what makes these so incredible. It gives it layers of hard and soft, chewy and crunchy, to really give that extra uumph of deliciousness.

The original recipe is here. But it requires logging in via Facebook so I thought I’d spare you the trouble.

It’s super easy, just the basic ingredients:

  • 2 cups/256 grams all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ pound/227 grams unsalted butter (2 sticks), room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups/302 grams granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup/55 grams packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract

6 ounces/170 grams bittersweet chocolate, chopped 

 1) Preheat to 350°, of course
2) Combine flour, baking soda, and salt.

3) Mix butter until creamy Add granuated and brown sugars, mix until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes). Add egg, vanilla, 2 tablespoons of water, and continue mixing. Add chocolate.

4) Make 1/3 cup balls (100 grams for non-Americans) and try to allow enough space on the pan. I didn’t on all of mine, and a photo of one of my failure cookies is waiting at the end as a warning. Put them in the freezer for 15 minutes.

5) Bake 10 minutes or until cookies are a little puffy in the center. Bang the baking sheets on the rack a couple of times so that the edges set, but the center falls. This will make the ridges. Probably best to not do this in the middle of the night if any light sleepers are in the house lol.

6) Keep banging them every 2 or 3 minutes, 16-18 minutes in total. Edges will be golden brown, but the center should be light and slighty soft.

You guys. These are the most delicious things to have ever existed. Just look at those ridges.

Remember my failure cookie? This little guy was too close to the edge. You want happy round cookies, not wonky ones so be more careful about your placement than I was.

And there you have it. The best cookies ever. Let me know if you give these a shot.
*for normal size, try 400° for 7 minutes
