The answer is nothing. I am on a quest to find the best chocolate chip recipe out there and it is going to be hard to top these Soft & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies from Sally's Cookie Addiction. Clearly Sally knows her cookies, since she has a whole cookbook dedicated to them.
Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Make the magic happen...
Now to the fun part where I just blab about stuff and things.
The reason I hate chilling the cookie dough is obvious, it takes time when all I want is instant gratification (who doesn't?). The reasons I love chilling the cookie dough are because if you pre-scoop the dough, it makes baking/cleanup a breeze, it keeps the cookies uniform and cooked evenly, and honestly I think it makes the cookies taste better. Patience is a virtue, friends!
I found it fitting to make my first recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction because she is the reason I started blogging my first time around. She truly sparked my passion and continues to do so as she finds success in her baking career. Her baking world and website is a lot more colorful than mine, but I have learned so much from her and haven't made a recipe I didn't like. So, thank you Sally! You are a rockstar!
I hope you continue with me on this quest to find the best chocolate chip cookie recipe! Stay tuned.
Also, thanks for being here.
