I have been looking for the perfect chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe for the longest time. Whenever I bake chocolate chip cookies they turn out to be too cakey. Recently my sister recommended a recipe that she found online by Two Peas and Their Pod. She told me she uses this recipe whenever she would give out cookies as gifts for her friends. And of course I had to try making them and here's how they turned out:
Gorgeous cookies! This is the best batch of chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. Everyone in the family loves it. They're warm and chewy in every bite. And I think the sea salt makes it even better. This recipe by Maria is worth sharing!
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated white sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup caramel bits
*(since we didn't have Kraft Caramel Bits at home, we chopped hard caramel candy into smaller pieces)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
sea salt for sprinkling
1. Preheat oven at 350F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In a mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar for 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla beat until smooth.
3. In a large bowl, whisk flour, cornstarch, baking soda and sea salt.
4. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients. Then stir in chocolate chip and caramel bits.
5. Form cookie dough into balls with the help of a spoon. Place them on the cookie sheet two inches apart.
6. For chewy cookies, bake them for 10 minutes. But if you want it a little crispy, leave it in the oven for 5 more minutes.
7. Let the cookies cool before transferring to cooling rack. You might break the cookies when you transfer them while they're still warm.
8. Sprinkle sea salt all over the cookies.
Go try it out for yourself and let me know how they turned out!
