Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
Zero Waste Baking
This is our go-to recipe for chewy chocolate chip cookies. Comforting, slightly chewy, moorish, and very easy to make. Perfect for afternoon tea, midnight snacks, and ideal to make ahead/freeze for surprise guests.
½ cup butter (115g), melted
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup plain flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ cup choc chips
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line two baking trays with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together the two sugars, salt, and butter until the mixture is creamy and pale. Add in the egg and vanilla, then add the flour and baking soda and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop/spoon enough dough to make each cookie then place them, well-spaced, onto the tray. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or overnight.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges have started to slightly brown. It won’t look done, but it is, if you want a delicious chewy cookie.
Cool completely before taking them off the tray. Enjoy!
Raw cookie dough is perfect for the freezer and so handy to have ready to go for impromptu guests. Make a double batch of these cookies, roll chilled dough into a long log, and slice or roll into individual balls. Allow 30 min for thawing on a lined baking tray. Once at room temperature, bake as per recipe.
