What does best ever chocolate chip cookies taste like?

You’d think just chocolate right? Nah. Theres so much more to these cookies!

Chocolate Chips – Yeah, there’s an over load, but I think it’s justified. Just cos.

Chewy vanilla cookies – When you’re dealing with simple and big flavours in a dessert, you want to use the very best ingredients you can. The freshest eggs, the best butter. That’s what makes the vanilla aspect of these cookies so yum!

Salt – the salt on top of these cookies, like on most desserts, just elevate everything and cuts through the sweetness. Careful though, cos it makes them addictive!

What are the ingredients I need for best ever chocolate chip cookies?

All-purpose flour – also known as plain flour.

Cake flour – Cake flour is plain flour but with added corn starch which results in a much lighter and delicate crumb for your cookies and cakes. It’s easy to make your own. Simply add 1 tbsp of corn starch per 1 cup of plain flour.

Baking powder – this will help give your cookies a slight rise and make them more cake like which is a key characteristic of this cookies texture.

Salt – I used fine salt for this recipe.

Unsalted butter – Make sure your butter is chilled for this recipe. It helps create an almost pastry like consistency.

Caster sugar – Also known as superfine sugar.

Brown sugar – I used regular brown sugar for this recipe. You can use light or dark brown sugar if you like.

Egg – I used a large egg that were at room temperature.

Vanilla extract – Make sure you’re using really good quality vanilla extract! It makes all the difference!

Dark chocolate chips – You can use any type you like! white and milk chocolate chips will also work here.

Sea salt flakes – This helps add flavour and cut through the sweetness of the cookie. They also help elevate the chocolate flavour.

Let’s go through each step.

My Top Tips!

  • When rolling the cookies, make sure you roll them quickly. The warmth from your hands will soften the butter and cause them to melt a little.
  • Use a large round cookie cutter to jiggle around the cookies as soon as they come out of the oven to help them get a nice perfect round shape.

Love the Chocolate Chip cookie recipe from July 27. Just a side note, I would be remiss if I did not tell you that you have the wrong measurement for butter on the recipe but the correct amount on your video. On the recipe it reads 12 cups of butter but on the video it’s 1/2 cup. Thanks!

I made dough balls and put in the freezer. Came out amazing.
But Please be precise : This is not chocolate chip cookies but chocolate chips with a little bit cookies (laughs)
I even lower the amount of chocolate chips because it turns out that there is such a thing as too much chocolate.
Thank you
