Soft and chewy chocolate chips cookies

chocolate chips


Treat myself or my family with chocolate cookies? The bottom line is to treat my hubby with chocolate. He is a crazy chocolate lover. Today’s sunny day brings me energy to do lots of stuffs, including making chocolate chips cookies.

The recipe caught my eyes when I saw the title ‘SOFT AND CHEWY CHOCOLATE CHIPS COOKIES’. This is perfect for my hubby. He loves soft and chewy chocolate chips.

Then now, do I have ingredients to need to make them? Open my pantry; I am pretty much happy because I don’t have to run to the grocery store to make these chewy cookies. Not because I am not a big fan of grocery stores, it is just because the thought of bringing my son to shop made me think twice to go to the grocery store.

Here is the recipe for chocolate chips cookies taken from Martha Stewart website.

Makes about 3 dozen
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

“COOKIES……!” that his voice when seeing those cookies on the cooling racks. They are just soft and warm as they have just came out from the oven. He can’t wait until cookies get little bit cooler. Mmmm….. Yup, when it is about chocolate chips cookies my hubby definitely acts like my two years old boy!! LOL

The cookies look pretty thin, mmm I am not sure why. I think I don't drop tablespoon size balls of dough on the baking sheet.

dwi, di website nya sayang gak ada fotonya ya. menurut gue kadang tergantung resep jg, ada yg bisa bikin cookie nya jadi gendut. cara gue sekarang kalo nyendokin cookie itu pake cookie/ice cream scooper (http://www.amazon.com/Good-Grips-Medium-Cookie-Scoop/dp/B0000CDVD2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1207756838&sr=1-1). jadinya lebih rapih, bulet2 dan rata2 gemuk2.
