  Chocolate Chip Cookies!
About the Chocolate Chip Cookie
A chocolate chip cookie is a drop cookie that originated in the United States and features chocolate chips as its distinguishing ingredient. The traditional recipe combines a dough composed of butter and both brown and white sugar with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Variations include recipes with other types of chocolate or additional ingredients, such as nuts or oatmeal.

Example Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F, or 350°F (around 190°C to 176°C) if you want chewy cookies.
  2. Cream butter, margarine, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating until fully incorporated. Add vanilla extract and beat in.
  3. In a small bowl, sift together the dry ingredients (except chocolate & nuts). Add to the wet mixture in two parts and fold until combined. (If you beat this too long, you may get some gluten formation which will change the cookie texture).
  4. Stir in chocolate morsels (chips), and nuts if using. Please be considerate of people with nut allergies by mentioning the nuts if you use them.
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets. There should be enough fat in the cookie dough to prevent sticking, but using parchment paper or non-stick pans may help if you find this not to be the case.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown (cooking times may vary). Let stand for about 1 minute and remove from hot baking sheet to cool on a wire rack.

Notes, Tips, and Variations

Note that using "dark" chocolate (>65% cacoa) will result in a significantly different taste than the "traditional" recipe. In general, if you find the raw chocolate to be too bitter or not enjoyable to eat, you may not like them in the cookies (no matter the quality).
