Easy Chocolate Chip (chunk) Cookies

Recipes - Anupriya kapur - March 21, 2016

Kabir (my son) loves these Chocolate Chip Cookies a bit more than the brownies that I bake. And I baked them today to give him a little sweet surprise as today is his last day of 3rd grade. Perks of working from home I guess. This one is chewy and quite rich. Since, I have run out of chocolate chips, I will be using chunks of chocolate instead.

Butter – 113gm

Granulated White Sugar – 75 gmIMG_20160321_141427-01

Light/Dark Brown Sugar – 80gm (don’t use Mawana as that’s just colored white sugar)

Egg – 1

Vanilla Essence – 3/4 tsp

Flour – 150 gms

Chocolate Chips – 135gm (I used Morde Dark Compund, any chocolate would do)

Baking Soda – 1/2 tsp

  1. Preheat oven at 190 Degrees C for about 8-10 mins. Line the baking tray with butter paper.
  2. With the hand mixer, beat the butter (straight from the fridge) in a bowl until soft and creamy.
  3. Beat the sugars with the butter till mixed well.
  4. Beat the egg as well as vanilla essence into the mixture and scrape the sides of the bowl as and when required.
  5. Mix all the dry ingredients together and add it to the above mixture till it incorporates.IMG_20160321_142507-01
  6. Add the chocolate chunks in the end.
  7. If the mixture is too soft (generally it is ), then refrigerate this mixture for half an hour or so.
  8. Use an icecream scoop or spoon to drop the mixture on to the baking sheets.
  9. Bake for 10-14 minutes. The sides should be golden brown but the center will still be little soft.
  10.  Let them cool down completely before picking up.

Note – Baking time will also depend on the size of the cookies you are making. This batter will make about 15-18 big cookies as shown in the pic above.
