Chocolate Chips: As previously mentioned in many posts, I like to use dark chocolate chips in my baking. It’s just a personal preference. If you wish to use the dark chips, see the recipe card for the brand I like. Of course, your standard semi sweet variety are the norm.
This is a pretty basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, with the exception that it only makes 12 cookies. Your standard chocolate chip cookie recipe will probably give you anywhere from 24-36 cookies. But, like those standard chocolate chip recipes, make sure your butter is softened before using.
You don’t want it to be a melted mess, but, softened. This will make mixing much easier and give you the soft consistency with your cookies.
How to Make:
- First, line a flat rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mats.
- Then, in a bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients and set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, beat softened butter until creamy. Then, add in both sugars, vanilla and egg yolk. Beat to combine.
- Gradually, add in the dry ingredients and beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
- Drop batter by the spoonful on prepared baking sheet and bake.
- Once removed from the oven, let them sit on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes. Then, remove and let them cool completely on a wire rack.
A few last notes:
- If desired, you can make your cookie dough and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake. Cover the dough and use within a day or two. You will need to let it come to room temperature before baking. It will be easier for scooping the batter.
- These cookies will freeze well. Store them in a freezer safe covered container or storage bag. They will say good for about 2 months. To defrost, let them sit at room temperature or pop in the microwave for a few seconds to warm.
