I make this for every guest at our B&B. They always love them and usually ask for the recipe. I make sure to cream the butter and sugars until they turn light in color. Sometimes the batter is thicker, probably due to less humidity or cool weather. If it seems to gooey (before I add the chocolate chips), I add a lit more flour.
I love these, and had it posted until recently discovered as a duplicate. It looks like the flour differs from the original, as well as the egg. The original recipe is 2 cups 2 Tbps flour, and it has 1 large whole egg, and 1 large egg yolk. Great cookies!
This is MY favorite recipe for CCC. Everyone in the family seems to like different one's best, but this is perfect for me. I use ghiradelli 60% cocoa chocolate chips- they are the best for baking! I also chill the dough sometimes even overnight if I can because I think the bake perfectly like that. The dough is obviously firm from being cold, but I don't find the fresh dough stiff like many reviewers.
I have baked these cookies three times now and learnt a valuable lesson the second time. Pay particular attention to not over mixing the dough!!!I I cannot stress this enough! Overmixing will result in a strange gooey textured cookie that just will not cook in the centre, and it will be an absolute waste of your time and ingredients.
Overall I found these cookies quite good, but not the best cookie I have ever had. They sure are chewy though! However, the outside of mine were crunchy, but I did not over-bake them because the centres were done perfectly. The cookie tastes nice and sweet. However, the first time I baked these they were very thin and flat, no matter how high the dough balls are when they go into the oven! I personally prefer chunkier cookies. However, the third time I made them they were chunky! So no idea what went differently!
I used 1 cup of chopped up chocolate, and have tried variations with the chocolate. I have tried 1/2c Whittakers white chocolate and 1/2c Whittakers 50% chocolate. I have also tried 1 cup M&Ms. I am yet to try white, milk and dark chocolate!
Overall, I would recommend this recipe if you are sick of cookie recipes never working out like I was!
Very nice. They're cooling now. I made them large, only 2 dozen. I had "odd" flours on hand, so I used 1 c. whole wheat, 1 c. brown rice flour, and 1/4 c. almond meal. And 2 tsp. baking powder since I'm out of baking soda. I lightly browned the butter on purpose and cut the sugar by about a 1/4 c. All is fine!
This is perfection in a cookie <3. Thick, Chewy, Gorgeous looking and tasty. I've tried tons of recipes and this is my favorite for sure.
Aloha Chef! I'm not sure if it's the showery weather we are having here today, the fact that I only had XL Eggs or just the recipe itself, but for me the cookie dough was very stiff and sticky and difficult to work with. That said, if you follow the 'reshaping' instructions, you will get an incredible looking cookie! I made some that way and left others shaped like the round scoop. These are sweet and chewy -- I also used a combination of Bitter/Semi-Sweet and Milk Chocolate Chips plus 1 cup of finely chopped Walnuts. Made for PAC Spring 2010 ... mahalo for posting!
These are the best choc o chippies I have made. I did use half whole wheat flour, since I do that with all our cookies. I didn't even do the futzy step in shaping the cookies, just used a tablespoon measure and they were great!
Good cookies. Easy to make and tasty. The dough was rather stiff but workable. I used light brown sugar and the full amount of chocolate chips. Did not use the fancy way of shaping them, just scooped them with large tablespoons. The cookies do not spread very much and mine baked for 15 minutes. I got 22 cookies, ate one when it just cooled off and it was crispy on the edges, soft and chewy in the middle. When the cookies had cooled off completely they were a tad harder in the center. All in all a good cookie, well worth making. Thanks for posting.
If you are looking for the perfect chocolate chip cookie - Look no Further! This is it! Crispy on the bottom, and soft and chewy all in one bite! I just used my cookie scoop and got 31 perfectly shaped beautiful cookies. Thank you SO much!!!!
