Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

A delight for Chocolate Lovers..!!! 🙂

These cookies are soft from inside and crisp from outside. Can be enjoyed with milk !!!! But, as they are full of butter, so the calorie content is quite high. These cookies can be enjoyed anytime, with kids or guests at home..!!

The baking time of the cookie matters the most. It should be calculative, which comes by more and more practice.

The recipe goes here…..

Ingredients:

2 cups All purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar*

1/2 cup brown sugar

4 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder (optional)

1/2 tbsp. Vanilla essence

Caramel syrup (optional)

2 eggs

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips or chunks

a pinch of salt

Method:

In a bowl, mix togetherbutter (at room temperature) and sugar. They can be mixed in a electric mixer. Mix them till they become light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add egg, vanilla extract and caramel syrup and beat for 1 more minute.

In a medium bowl whisk together all purpose flour and cocoa powder,baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients all at once to the butter and egg mixture. Mix them well for another 3-4 minutes.

Now add the chocolate chips. Put this mixture in the refrigerator for around 10 minutes.

Cover the baking tray with a baking sheet. Scoop the dough on the tray leaving about 2-inches between each dough ball.

Now put the cookie tray in a preheated oven (350 degrees F). Bake for 11 to 12 minutes or until cookies are just done.  It is even ok if these cookies are slightly under baked. Try not to over bake them.

Once the cookies are done, move them on a cooling tray. Let them cool & then enjoy the delicious cookies !!!

Tip: If brown sugar is not available, just increase the amount of  white sugar.

Instead of baking sheet, silver foil can also be used.

It is not necessary to put the dough in the refrigerator. Cookies can be bake directly. Putting the dough in refrigerator just makes it smoother.

ENJOY!!

About Ankita

Hello All, "No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing." I was never into cooking nor i was a foodie. But recently, after my marriage, i developed this new hobby. All thanks goes to my husband. He is a big time foodie, a great cook and a solid critic and above all an amazing photographer. From him, i learned the basics of cooking & started showing interest. This blog is a result of encouragement and appreciation which i always get from my family & friends. I basically belong to the historical city Gwalior (M.P). Presently, my abode is New Jersey (US). So i spend most of my time in cooking and trying new recipes. I am a fun loving, down-to-earth and a spiritual person (i guess). My ideology is "What you do, so shall you fill". I firmly believe in Karma. Karma comes after everyone eventually. So one shall mind their deeds. Being a classical singer my Love for Music (mainly Indian) is never ending. Music makes my day. My interests also include calligraphy, meditation and as a proud wife of a good photographer and a very good cook i have started showing interest in these areas also. This is all about me! Thank you and I invite all to share their recipes and give their valuable suggestions..!! Good Day!! Enjoy!!
