Chocolate chip cookies are one of the most common desserts you can make, and also one of the most appreciated ones. Although we often try to find healthier alternatives to certain recipes, especially to desserts (which is great), nothing can beat the classic, homemade version of a dish. So, after trying out and combining countless recipes, I’ve come up with a perfect chocolate chip cookies recipe (by modifying this one from BBC Good Food) that you’re sure to love when you’re craving something sweet.

The best thing about these cookies is that the dough can be frozen. This way, you can keep some in the freezer and pop them in the oven whenever you’re craving something sweet.

Ingredients:

  • 120 g of softened butter
  • 80 g of brown sugar
  • 60 g of white sugar
  • 180 g of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt
  • 170 g of chopped dark chocolate
  • optional: about 50 g of chopped nuts
  • optional: a tablespoon of cocoa powder

 

Preparing the chocolate chip cookies:

  1. Add your sugar and salt to the softened butter and whisk them with an electric mixer (or in a stand mixer) until the sugar is almost fully dissolved and you’re left with a shiny, light colored cream. This will take about 5 minutes or so.
  2. Add in your vanilla extract and egg and whisk them in for a couple more minutes, until the egg is fully incorporated into the dough.
  3. Combine all of your dry ingredients (the flour and the baking soda) into a separate bowl. If you want your cookies to be extra chocolatey, now is the time to add that optional tablespoon of cocoa powder (otherwise you can omit it).
  4. Add your dry ingredients to the wet, mixing them with a spatula until they are almost fully combined.
  5. Then, add in your chocolate chunks (and the optional chopped nuts, if you want to) and continue mixing the dough until everything if fully incorporated.
  6. Using an ice cream scoop, a regular spoon or just your clean hands, make balls out of the dough and place them about 5 centimeters apart from each other on a lined baking sheet. This recipe will leave you with about 15 medium sized cookies. If you’d like to freeze some of your cookies, now is the time to do so.
  7. Place the cookies in an oven that has been preheated to 1800C and leave them to bake for about 10-12 minutes. If you’re baking cookies that have been frozen beforehand, you don’t need to defrost them, but you do need to let them bake for a couple more minutes, so make sure to keep an eye on them.
