Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Me and the boys made some chocolate chip cookies today. We have a few yummy chocolate chip cookie recipes. One of them being Nestle ; ) but we decided on this chewy one today. Freshed baked cookies and a glass of milk make everything better right? The boys licked there plate clean literally so they must be yummy!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 2 1/4 all purpose flour (spooned & leveled)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  •  1 1/2 tsp corn starch
  •  1/2 tsp salt
  •  3/4 cup or 1 1/2 sticks of butter (melted)
  •  3/4 cup light brown sugar
  •  1 large egg and 1 egg yolk
  •  2 tsp vanilla extract
  •  12 oz bag of chocolate chips or chunks
*Makes 16 Large Cookies*

In medium bowl whisk melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar together until there are no brown sugar lumps. Whisk in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients flour, baking soda, corn starch and salt. Mix together (the dough will be very soft). Fold in the chocolate chips.  Cover and chill for 2 hrs or up to 3 days.   (You NEED to chill the dough or the cookies will spread flat).

Preheat oven to 325°. Roll dough into balls (the dough will be crumbly but the heat from your hands will keep it intact). If you want them to look luscious gently press some extra chocolate chips on top. Bake for 11-12 minutes (No longer then 12 minutes). The cookies will look very soft and under baked. Allow them to set on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely.
























Enjoy! If you try them out let me know what you think. : ) What's your favorite kind of cookie?

  7. There is nothing like homemade chocolate chip cookies. Since it's just me and the hubby, I never make them and I can't give them away. Being a fitness person, it would be an oxymoron for sure.
