How do you make these Choco Chips Cookies?
It's very easy and I'll show you two options. I like to do most of the process by hand, mixing the flour and sugar. Then add the flour and here I advise you to get your hands dirty to knead the dough well.
Mix the liquid ingredients and again use your hands or a mixer to mix the ingredients well.
Then just stir in the choco chips and there you go.
The alternative is to put everything in the mixer, this way you don't need to get your hands dirty and it's easier to knead the choco chip cookie dough to the desired consistency.
For this recipe you'll need:
- White sugar
- Brown sugar
- Unsalted butter
- Vanilla essence
- Baking powder
- Dark chocolate chips
What are the tricks to the perfect Choco Chips Cookies?
- The mixture of flour and cornstarch will make the cookies crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, like a true American cookie.
- The same goes for the addition of brown sugar and white sugar.
- Use unsalted butter, so you can adjust the salt to your taste. It's better to add it little by little than to overdo it with salt.
- Make sure the butter is at room temperature, because it will make the cookie dough more airy and with a crunchy texture on the outside and soft inside.
- As for the eggs, use them also at room temperature because it will influence the structure of the cookie dough. If you don't have the eggs at room temperature, put them under hot water for 1 to 2 minutes.
- The vanilla essence will accentuate the dark chocolate flavor of the choco chips.
- The choco chips also give some crunch to the cookies, plus they get a little melty.
