I usually do my baking sessions on weekends as i can take my own sweet time which is quite impossible during the weekdays. I wanted to make these cookies from a very long time but unfortunately something or the other came up. In the past i have tried quite a few recipes, some were good and some went in trash. I usually prefer crispy chocolate chip cookies with lots of chocolate in them. When i started to make these cookies I realized i didnt have enough chocolate chips on hand but the craving for having them was so STRONG that i went ahead. I was making this cookie after a very long time but the results were pretty good, these cookies were crispy around the edges and chewy in the middle and brown sugar does give them a distinct flavor. I wouldnt call them the best cookies ever but they are definately a keeper. I got around 15 to 18 medium sized cookies from the below recipe. I am sending these cookies to For the Love of Chocolate event hosted by Poornima and to EFM-Cookies hosted by Srilekha.
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter softened (about 50 to 60 gms)
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 small sachet vanilla sugar (15gms)
- Preheat the oven at 180 degrees C.
- Sift the flour and baking soda together and keep aside.
- Beat the butter until it gets creamy, add in the sugars along with the vanilla sugar and beat for about 2 to 3 until well blended.
- Now add in the egg and vanilla essence and beat on medium for about 2 mins.
- Slowly add in the flour mixture and mix together using a spatula (Donot use beater for this).
- The mixture will be quite thick, now add in the chocolate chips and mix well.
- Line the baking try with foil or butter paper and drop a spoonful of mixture. Make sure there is atleast 2 inch space between each as the cookies will expand.
- Bake for about 10 to 12 mins, until they turn light brown around the edges.
- Remove the tray and cool it completely for about 15 to 20 mins.
- Store the cookies in airtight container.
- Enjoy them with a glass of cold milk or just munch them inbetween meals as i do :)
