There can’t be a Christmas without at least one Chocolate chip cookies so I had to make them. I was baking cookies the whole weekend, from cutout cookies to confetti and ginger cookies. Frankly I was a bit tired of baking since my oven can only bake 6 cookies at a time, so baking is not a whole day event because I’m baking thousands of cookies but rather because my batches are small. That being said, I made 280 cookies and still had to make 20. I only noticed this after packing all the cookies in their little bags. I suppose I obviously “tasted” more of them than I should have…
Last night I quickly prepared the dough, luckily I had chocolate chips because I wanted to make some for my sister in law for Christmas. The dough had to be chilled so I left it in the fridge overnight and this morning I started baking, I managed to make 30 cookies although they weren’t very large. Quota filled!!!
It was the first time that I made Chocolate chip cookies but they came out very well. They were soft and chocolatey. I think the kids will like them. Once more I used the recipe from Sally’s baking addiction and used chocolate chips instead of chocolate chunks
- 2 and 1/4 cups (280g) all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup (170g) unsalted butter, melted1
- 3/4 cup (135g) loosely packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
- 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup (180g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
I measure out the ingredients exactly as stated, out of experience I don’t just measure with the eye :p
Sally always lists the ingredients in the order it should be used, so I firstly mixed all the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl
I then melted the butter in the microwave by cutting them into smaller blocks. After that I mixed the sugar with the melted butter.
Then I whisked the eggs slightly and added it to the sugar butter mixture, I also added the vanilla extract here.
Then I mixed added the wet mixture to the dry mixture. After mixing everything together I added the chocolate chips.
The very importantly, I chilled the dough in the fridge, you can chill it for 2 hours but I left mine overnight.
Preheat the oven to 325°F (163°C). Line your baking sheets, and start rolling the dough into little balls. Sally suggests using 3 tablespoons of dough per ball. I only used one teaspoon.
What cookies did you make for Christmas?
