Do men bake? They should, if not for one perfectly good reason: chocolate chip cookies. But not just any chocolate chip cookies would do; it needs to be chewy chocolate chip cookies.
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of melted butter
- 1 and 1/4 of cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 4 oz. of milk or semi-sweet chocolate chunks
- 4 oz. of dark chocolate chunks
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
Steps in Baking Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 180 degrees Celsius.
In a large bowl, whisk together both sugars, the butter, and the salt until you form a paste with no lumps.
Crack open the egg and add the vanilla into the mix, then beat everything until light ribbons fall off the whisk.
Add the flour and baking soda into the mixture by sifting them through a strainer, and then fold the mixture with a spatula. Just be careful not to mix too much and this may cause the gluten in the flour to toughen and make the cookies cakey.
Fold in the chocolate chunks evenly, then chill the dough for at least a half hour. For a more intense toffee-like flavor and deeper color, chill the dough overnight. The longer the dough rests, the more complex its flavor will be.
