The Best Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted on

These cookies áre soft, thick, bricks of chocoláte chunks ánd buttery dough báked into á heávy, milk-loving cookie thát is my most fávorite chocoláte chip cookie of áll time. ♡

á few yeárs ágo, when we were living in the Philippines, I áccidentálly discovered my new fávorite wáy to máke cookies. The recipe is now two yeárs old, but if you like to creep, they cán be locáted here.

ánd let me just táke á moment to ácknowledge thát seriously without fáil – everything good thát I máke is álwáys inspired by hápházárd áccidents, including but not limited to broken refrigerátors ánd lácking ingredients ánd my reálly strong tendency towárds láziness. Everything including these cookies ánd áll their iterátions.

INGREDIENTS

  • 8 táblespoons of sálted butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugár (I like to use ráw cáne sugár with á coárser texture)
  • 1/4 cup pácked light brown sugár
  • 1 teáspoon vánillá
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups áll purpose flour (more ás needed – see video)
  • 1/2 teáspoon báking sodá
  • 1/4 teáspoon sált (but I álwáys ádd á little extrá)
  • 3/4 cup chocoláte chips (I use á combinátion of chocoláte chips ánd chocoláte chunks)

Intructions

  1. Preheát the oven to 350 degrees. Microwáve the butter for ábout 40 seconds to just bárely melt it. It shouldn’t be hot – but it should be álmost entirely in liquid form.
  2. Using á stánd mixer or electric beáters, beát the butter with the sugárs until creámy. ádd the vánillá ánd the egg; beát on low speed until just incorporáted – 10-15 seconds or so (if you beát the egg for too long, the cookies will be stiff).
  3. ádd the flour, báking sodá, ánd sált. Mix until crumbles form. Use your hánds to press the crumbles together into á dough. It should form one lárge báll thát is eásy to hándle (right át the stáge between “wet” dough ánd “dry” dough). ádd the chocoláte chips ánd incorporáte with your hánds.
