What is the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe?
The best chocolate chip cookie recipe is one that is easy to follow, uses ingredients that are affordable, and has a delectable result. This recipe solves all three of these factors. For the dough, use 2 cups of white sugar or sugar substitute, 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon each of baking soda and baking powder. These are mixed together in a large bowl until the mixture turns into a thick dough. Use an electric mixer to mix together 6 tablespoons softened butter, 1 egg, and 3/4 teaspoons vanilla extract. The remaining ingredients are mixed in with this mixture to create the dough before it is rolled out into small rounds on a floured surface. After that it’s time to roll out the rounds into small rectangles which will be melted chocolate chips “glued” onto each rectangle using flour and water so they don’t stick together during cooking. Cook the brownie squares at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until the tops begin to harden up. Around 10 minutes before they are finished remove them from the oven and allow them to cool completely on a wire rack before glazing them with a chocolate glaze.
6 ounce package of semi-sweet chocolate chips (or you can use dark chocolate chips as well)
2 cups of cold water plus 1 tablespoon of cream
In a medium saucepan combine 2 cups of water and the cream. Bring to a boil and stir over medium high heat until the cream has dissolved. Add in 1 tablespoon of sugar and continue to stir until the mixture has thickened, adding additional cream as needed until the mixture has reached your desired consistency. Stir in chocolate chips with a spoon or whisk and allow the glaze to cool before adding it to each brownie square. Once you have poured your glaze onto one side add another layer of glaze on top so it is fully covered and then repeat. You can also leave the glaze off on one side or half on one side and do a half covered side if you want.
Flour : Flour is what makes up about two-thirds of the cookie dough. The flour helps to keep it from sticking together and to give it a more flavorful flavor. Flour has gluten in it, which can make doughs stretchy so you have a better chance of getting an evenly sized ball when shaping your cookies. Flours come in many different types and each is best suited for certain uses.
Salt : Salt helps to bring out the flavors of other ingredients in doughs. Without salt, chocolate chip cookies wouldn’t have that wonderful chocolate taste and would lose their characteristic crunch.
Sugar : Sugar is added for sweetness in most cookies, but it also helps to tenderize dough because it adds water.
Butter : Unsalted butter is often used, but salted is sometimes added as well so the cookies have a nice salty-sweet flavor.
Eggs : The eggs are used to give doughs its structure and provide moisture in baking. They also improve flavor by incorporating air into the dough.
Milk : Milk helps produce a soft cookie that’s less likely to crack when it cools.
Oil : Shortening or oil makes for an easier-to-work dough and helps cookies spread more easily.

A cookie recipe will require equipment that varies depending on the recipe. A cookie dough may need a bowl, a whisk, and an oven to bake in. Another sort of recipe may only need salt and eggs to make cookies. Learn what equipment is needed for your specific recipe so you can make it with ease.
