Chewy chocolate chip cookies
When the name of the food is this good it really sets the bar for the way they should taste. Thankfully, as soon as you put these cookies in your mouth you will be pleasantly surprised! Not only totally delicious, but also easy to make and ready to eat in about 20 minutes. No difficult ingredients or kitchen supplies needed. I can keep writing about these babes but I think it’s time for you to try them yourself.
What you need
- 120 grams butter (room temperature)
- 130 grams brown sugar
- 1 bag vanilla sugar
- 250 grams flour
- 1 egg
- 150 grams chocolate
- pinch of salt
- Baking tray
- Baking paper
- In the rare occasion you don’t eat them all at once, you can save them for 1 week in a closed container.
Preheat the oven at 180°C. Slice the butter into small pieces and mix together with the brown sugar, vanilla sugar and egg in a large bowl. Mix until you have a smooth dough. Add the flour and a pinch of salt en knead until you have a smooth and firm dough.
Chop the chocolate into small pieces with a large knife. Add to the dough and knead well so the chocolate is well divided. You can also save some of the chocolate pieces and press them into the cookies at the end, so the chocolate sticks out a bit more.
Tip: instead of chopping a chocolate bar, you can also use chocolate chips.
Put the baking paper onto the tray. Take a bit of dough, make a ball of approximately 2 cm and place on the tray. Make sure the cookies are 3 to 4 cm apart, otherwise they will stick together while baking.
Bake the cookies for 15 minutes until done. The cookies are supposed to be a little soft when you take them out of the oven, but as soon as they’re totally cooled they will harden but keep the chewy center.
