HI. It’s day 5 of my 18 days of baking extravaganza, and it’s been such a thrill! I love being in the kitchen and baking new things everyday. I woke up this morning and was destined to make the chewiest, gooiest, chocolate chip cookies for my brother. He’s the chewy chocolate cookie type, not the cakey chocolate chip cookies type. The flatter the better. His ideal cookie is from Mrs. Fields (LOL). I plan to change that today.
These are oooey, gooey, chewy, chocolatey and absolutely incredible! This has been a recipe that I’ve been perfecting for a while now and I might have hit the nail on the head! WEE.
What you’ll need:
1 1/2 sticks softened unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup lightly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 generous teaspoon vanilla paste
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, your choice
fleur de sel for garnish
How you’ll do it:
1) Preheat the oven to 350F.
2) In a large bowl, whisk together butter and sugars until fluffy and creamy. Add eggs one at a time while whisking after each addition and then add in vanilla paste, whisk until combined.
3) Dump in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix with a whisk until just combined. Pour in the chocolate chips. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. Switch to a rubber spatula or wooden spoon and fold all the ingredients together until the dough comes together.
4) On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, use a cookie scoop to measure out the dough. I used a 2-inch cookie scoop.
5) Once dough is all scooped out, sprinkle each cookie with fleur de sel. Be generous!
6) Bake the cookies for exactly 15 minutes. they might look uncooked but they will continue to cook throughout while they cool. Rest the cookies on a wired rack for at least 10 minutes.
These made 19 large cookies and tasted amazing! The chewiest and softest cookies ever. I think it’s the addition of the light and dark brown sugars… and with the sprinkle of fleur de sel… remarkable 🙂
