Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies


Cookies are most commonly baked until crisp or just long enough that they remain soft, but some kinds of cookies are not baked at all. Cookies are made in a wide variety of styles, using an array of ingredients including sugars, spices, chocolate, butter, peanut butter, nuts, or dried fruits. The softness of the cookie may depend on how long it is baked.

VERRY EXXCELLENT COOOKIE! I worked 10 years as a baker and the recipe we used at the bake shop was similar except this recipe didn’t call for any cream of tartar, so I added it to my version. I added 1/2 tspn. What it does is make the cookie crack better when baking which gives it a better appeal in appearance as appose to that smooth top looking cookie which I don’t like. It doesn’t do anything for flavor so if you don’t care about whether its smooth or cracked then don’t bother with the suggestion.

This is the perfect chocolate chip cookie!! Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside!! For added flavor I also add l cup of white chocolate chips (try the brand that Aldi’s carries…wonderful….better then Nestles!!) Some have stated that their cookies were too cakelike, this is caused by the addition of too much flour. To help prevent this, spoon flour into measuring cup, leveling off with knife, rather then dipping cup into flour. Roll dough into walnut size balls. Be careful not to overbake, I decrease my oven temperature to 325 and bake for l0 minutes. I have tried dozens of chocolate chip cookie recipes over the years, this one is far superior to any of them!! Makes 4 dozen. Thanks for sharing.

Looking over the ingredients list and the measurements of each, I recognized this as your fairly standard, classic chocolate chip cookie recipe–and I expected fairly standard results. I was baking in our second home today, where I have a convection oven (which I remain somewhat unfamiliar with). I don’t know if it was the convection oven or something else I’m missing, but these did not turn out to be fairly standard chocolate chip cookies! Rather, they were some of the best I’ve ever tried. First of all, they stay uniform in shape and size, which is important to me, and they’re just the right thickness–not poofy little cakes, and not flat and spread out. They’re rich and buttery, with crispy outsides, and a soft but chewey inside. I didn’t bother to mix the baking soda in the 2 tsp. hot water, just mixed it in with the flour–I also added 1/2 tsp. salt to heighten flavor. Since 2 tsp. of water was called for that I didn’t use, I “upped” the vanilla to a full tablespoon. I also used milk chocolate chips this time around, but that surely can’t account for why these were so darn good and so pretty either. I’m so proud of how these turned out and I’ll be proud to send them with my husband tomorrow to his meeting. If not “Best Chocolate Chip Cookies,” this recipe is certainly ONE of the best!

These were fantastic cookies, without a doubt. I did lessen the white sugar to 1/2 cup and increase the brown sugar to 1 1/2 cups for a richer flavor. I also recommend using Trader Joe’s Vanilla Paste, but that’s just a preference. However, if you want the perfect cookie, be sure to chill your dough for at least an hour (2 hours is better) and they will come out even. I baked at 325 for about 12 minutes. On Silpat or parchment paper, they’ll turn out fabulous every time. I am sending them to work with my fiance to keep me from eating three dozen of them! 🙂
