Today my husband and I were invited to meet our friends’ newborn baby. Since they already have a 4 year old, I decided it would be a good idea to make chocolate chip cookies since who doesn’t like them, right?
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
7 ounces butter (1/2 cup + 1/4 cup + 1/8 cup), melted and cooled
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups chocolate (1 cup chocolate chips, 1 cup chocolate wafers for melting)
Well here are the steps:
1) melt the butter and wait until it becomes solid again. Looking for a custard-y consistency.
2) prepare your baking sheets. Line them with parchment paper.
7) add the chocolate chips. Here I used 50% semi-sweet chocolate chips and 50% chocolate wafers (I bought mine from bulk barn). In an ideal world raw chocolate chip cookie dough will be calorie free.
9) in this step, I took a 1/4 cup measure and scooped in the cookie dough. I then cut it in half with my fingers and molded them into balls. Then place them on the baking sheet.
10) Since the cookies where not at room temperature, only start preheating the oven once you remove them from the fridge. It is best to put them in the oven before it hits 350 degrees. I am saying this because if the oven was already at 350 degrees, the outside would melt too quickly while the center of the cookie still be cold. Then bake for about 12 minutes, turning the baking sheet the other direction halfway in the baking process . Since everyone’s oven performs differently, I suggest you keep an eye on them once it hits the 10 minute mark.
11) Take them out of the oven and keep the cookies on the tray for a few minutes. Once they cooled down a little, place them on a cooling rack.
