Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are a go-to favorite dessert, sweet snack, or after-school treat. With our easy, three-step recipe, you’ll have soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies to serve and enjoy in no time.

INGREDIENTS

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 cup packed light-brown sugar

1 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

2 large eggs

2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

2. Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

3. Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.

 

COOK’S NOTES

If desired, use a small ice-cream scoop for uniform-size cookies.

Recipe: Peppermint Bark Brownie Cookies

Peppermint2

What You Need:

  • 4 ounces full-fat cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract*
  • 1 3.9 ounces instant chocolate fudge pudding mix dry (unprepared)
  • 1/4 cup white flour
  • 1 18.4 ounces fudge brownie mix**
  • 1 3.5 ounces Ghirardelli peppermint bark bar
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips
  • Optional: 1/3 cup white chocolate chips, peppermint crunch sprinkles

How To:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. In a large bowl fitted to a stand mixer, bring together the cream cheese and butter until completely smooth. They must both be at room temperature — do not melt or soften in the microwave of your cookies will flatten more/ be less thick. Just leave out for about 45 minutes to an hour and they’ll be perfect!

  3. Beat in the large egg and vanilla (OR peppermint extract to taste — see note).

  4. Beat in the pudding mix (do not prepare), and flour.

  5. Beat in the fudge brownie mix. It will be EXTREMELY thick and takes a while to get a dough to form. This is intended. Just keep mixing and it will all come together even though it seems like it won’t.

  6. Coarsely chop the peppermint bark bar. Stir in the chopped peppermint bark bar (reserve a few pieces to press in the top), chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips (if desired).

  7. Scoop out cookies using a cookie scoop onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silpat liner.

  8. Bake for 13-16 minutes. Slightly under-baking these cookies gives them an awesome taste and texture.

  9. Optional: Make them pretty! Press a few pieces of the reserved peppermint bark bar or a few extra chocolate chips onto the tops of the cookies right as they come out of the oven. Sprinkle the cookies with a bit of peppermint crunch sprinkles if desired (they stick to the melted chocolate chips).
