Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Don’t you agree that every single blog should have a chocolate chip cookie post? Well, I do! I found this recipe on Dorothy’s blog Crazy For Crust. She has the best blog, and I have been following it for a year or two! I actually used the same recipe as I did for the Kit-Kat Cookies I made a month ago, except I used milk chocolate chips instead. I think these are seriously the best cookies I have ever made! (Can you say something like that humbly???) Anyways, these cookies really do need to happen in your kitchen, because I know you will end up as geeked about them as I am.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 24 cookies

 Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Cream butter and both sugars until combined.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir and set aside.
  3. Turn mixer on low. Add egg, mixing completely.  Mix in vanilla extract. Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Add chocolate chips.
  4. Important: Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill dough for at least 2 hours. They taste best when baked from the refrigerator.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment or silpat liners.
  6. Scoop out 2 tablespoon sized balls and place two inches apart on cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. 10 minutes will be slightly underdone (the way I love them) but if you like a more done cookie, let them bake an extra minute or two. Let cool for 5 minutes, and then remove from pans to cool completely.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup Kit Kats, strips separated and broken into thirds (about 10 fun sized)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (or milk or semi-sweet)

Instructions

  1. Cream butter and both sugars until combined.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir and set aside.
  3. Turn mixer on low. Add egg, mixing completely. Mix in vanilla extract. Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Add Kit Kats and white chocolate chips. NOTE: if you’re not using a stand mixer, chop your Kit Kats smaller. If you are using a stand mixer, run it on medium-low speed for about 15 seconds. The Kit Kats will break up smaller during mixing.
  4. Important: Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill dough for at least 2 hours. They taste best when baked from the refrigerator.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment or silpat liners.
  6. Scoop out 2 tablespoon sized balls and place two inches apart on cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. 10 minutes will be slightly underdone (the way I love them) but if you like a more done cookie, let them bake an extra minute or two. Let cool for 5 minutes, and then remove from pans to cool completely.
