The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

April 24, 2017 in Food - No Comments

I have a confession to make. Are you ready? For years, I’ve been a store bought cookie dough person. Don’t gasp all at once, y’all. It wasn’t until I got married that I really tried to improve my cooking (and baking) skills. Baking has never been my strong suit, and I’ve always been afraid to bake things on my own. This recipe is relatively simple though, and yields the perfect chocolate chip cookie. They are incredible fresh out of the oven and the next day. They are crispy around the edges, but soft and just a little gooey inside. They really are the perfect chocolate chip cookie!

We are such a cookie family. I try to make some of these once a week, so that we have something sweet to eat every now and then. I’ve always been more of a salty snacker, but even I can’t resist a good cookie.

It’s been so long since I found and memorized this recipe, that I can’t be sure where it came from. I’m 100% sure that it’s from Pinterest, so if you know who this recipe belongs to, please let me know so that I can give them proper credit. While I have made a few adjustments to it, I didn’t stray too far from the original.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup room temperature unsalted butter
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips –this seems like a lot, I know, just trust me on this

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray.
  • In a medium sized bowl: sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together.
  • In another large bowl: beat together the butter, and sugars for about 2 minutes until the mixture is smooth.
  • Add the egg and vanilla to the sugar mixture and mix.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and mix in until just incorporated. Do not keep mixing – do not over mix.
  • Add chocolate chips and stir with a wooden spoon, again no over-mixing, just until incorporated.
  • Chill dough! – don’t forget this step, warm dough will yield a different textured cookie
  • Using a small or large ice cream scoop or heaping tablespoon, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets (6 to 8 per pan) depending on size you are making.
  • Bake the cookies, 1 sheet at a time- this is also crucial, until the bottoms and edges are lightly browned and the tops feel firm when lightly touched,
    Small cookies bake 8-10 minutes
    Large cookies bake 11-14 minutes
  • Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets, then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
    Makes 15 – 30 cookies depending on size

  • AD When Grayson was diagnosed with #hearingloss, one of my main concerns was being able to afford everything that he needed to maximize his quality of life. Hearing Evaluations, Speech Therapies, and any Devices that he needs aren't covered by insurance. If you know someone with a disability, have one yourself, or have a child with one, you know that it can become expensive FAST, and extremely overwhelming. When I heard about ABLEnow®, I was really 
excited to partner with them. ABLEnow accounts help eligible individuals (even children!) pay for expenses related to their disabilities. This includes everything from health and wellness, to housing, to education and so much more! Being able to help save for my son's financial future gives me such peace of mind. You can click the link in my bio to find out if you or someone you know is eligible to sign up for an ABLEnow account, and head to http://bit.ly/2ZrAozy for a chance to win a $500 contribution to an ABLEnow account! @ABLEnowVA #ABLEnow •

  • OH HEY. Remember me? 😂
I can’t even begin to describe the last two ish weeks that we’ve had over here. 
First of all, remember when I thought Grayson had pink eye? It turned out to just be a virus, that he also passed along to Sawyer, and they’re both still not over it. It’s gross, but I think we’re at the tail end of it. *Hopefully* 
Also, I got a new job. It’s part time and from home and I think it is going to be great for us. Does that mean you’ll see less of me? Nah. Probably the same or more since it’s I’ll be sitting at my desk way more often day to day. 
I also got hit with some severe dental pain on Friday, which was FUN to have to deal with over a holiday weekend, let me tell you. Thankfully, I’m finally on the mend and pain free 🙌🏻
I can’t wait to settle back into this space. 
Tell me something good that’s happened to you this week! I want to hear all of the things. •

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. Say that three times fast. I will be throwing this really quick recipe up on the blog later tonight. I made it last week and y’all were really excited to try it. Having two small children, I always try to make meals fun, versatile, and full of flavor so that they will enjoy it. I also love making recipes that are able to be tweaked to make it comfortable for your family. You CAN make your family healthy and delicious meals at home and it doesn’t have to take hours or require a ton of effort! 
SWIPE—>> to see an example of how I serve this meal to each of my kids. And keep your eyes peeled for this to hit the blog. •

We add a little extra veggies and an extra egg because Grayson like a lot of egg in his “egg rice” 😂 I also included a Homemade Yum Yum Sauce recipe because...do I even need a reason?
