Perfectly Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
I can’t think of a better first blog post than chocolate chip cookies! Chocolate chip cookies are a classic treat, and they happen to be my favorite! For as long as I can remember, I have always made the exact same chocolate chip cookie recipe. It has been my tried and true recipe. There was rarely a cookie I could find that I thought compared to my chewy chocolate chip cookies, but I decided I wanted to improve it. I wanted to create the perfect chocolate chip cookie.
How to make Perfectly Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
I’ve tested and tested and tested. I’ve tested more than 20 recipes. And I finally have it – the perfect recipe! This cookie is the texture that chocolate chip cookies should be. So soft. So chewy. So delicious. And the best part? They are so easy! All you need for this recipe is a mixing bowl and a spoon – no mixer required.
You’ll first stir together the melted butter and brown sugar. Next you’ll stir in the eggs and vanilla. Then you’ll add the flour, salt and cornstarch. And finally you’ll stir in the chocolate chips. I like to chill the dough for 30 minutes. It keeps the cookies from spreading and it makes the dough a bit easier to work with. BUT, if you are in a hurry you can make these without refrigerating the dough and have tons of cookies in less than an hour.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
