The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe is quite a strong claim, but hear me out. In my quest for the best cookie, I have tried and tested an unbelievable amount of Chocolate Chip cookie recipes. One day, I decided it was time to implement all my favourite flavours and textures in what I consider to be the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie out there and this is my result.
Prepare your ingredients, specifically the butter needs to be cooked to an amber colour. Careful, don't burn it so keep your attention on the cooking butter and occasionally stir. When the butter has reached the right colour and flavour, sift it and set aside to cool. It needs to be warm and liquid so don't cool in the fridge.
Combine the three sugars in a large mixing bowl and then add in the butter. Mix until well combined and smooth. Add in the eggs and vanilla until well combined, then sift in the flour, baking soda and salt and fold until combined. Don't over mix it should just be well combined.
Fold in the chocolate chips and chunks and set in the fridge for 20 - 30 minutes. Preheat your oven at 170C or 340F.
Next, we will form the cookie dough balls which will then melt into our amazing chocolate chip cookies. Use an ice-cream scoop to get even amounts of dough and place a scoop full of cookie dough on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Make sure you have adequate distance between each cookie (at least 4cm) and the edge of the baking tray as they will melt into a disc shape in the oven.
Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 14 minutes don't over bake cookies are soft in the oven as long as the sugar is hot. Set on a cooling rack (if you can resist) until cool enough to eat. Enjoy with a glass of Milk
