Anti- Cookbook – Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1.5-2 cups brown sugar (Sometimes I accidentally add 2 whole cups, which makes the cookies chewier and flatter)
  • 2 sticks butter (1 cup)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt (I like more!)
  • 1 bag (2 cups) chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Dash of cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 370 degrees
  2. Unwrap butter and cook in microwave on low power until it’s half-softened, half melted
  3. Mix brown sugar, melted butter, eggs and vanilla and whisk vigorously (or use a hand/stand mixer) until the mixture becomes lighter in color and texture
  4. Mix flour with baking soda and salt and add this mixture slowly to the other mixture
  5. Once the dough is made, mix in the chocolate chips and add about half a teaspoon of cinnamon
  6. Scoop out balls onto parchment-lined tray and bake for 10-12 minutes.

I’ve been making these cookies since I was a little kid and they always turn out good. Except for that one time in fifth grade when my friend and I baked cookies together and I accidentally replaced the flour with powdered sugar. Her mom wasn’t happy and I didn’t cook in their kitchen again for a long time. Anyways, these cookies are chewy in the middle and crunchy around the edge. Sometimes I make small adjustments or call audibles–white sugar & molasses, extra salt, hot melted butter– if I’m out of an ingredient and as long as I stick to the base ratios provided above, the cookies always turn out pretty good. I can pretty much guarantee that everybody will like them.
