Classic Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies | Baking

by - 18:00

This time of year is terrific for baking. When it's cold and rainy outside, what's better than spending the day inside baking and listening to your favourite songs, so today I'm going to show you a delicious classic chewy chocolate chip cookies recipe, so grab a someone o bake with and let's go.

This recipe serves between 1 & 10 cookies (depending on how big you want them to be)


125g all-prupose flour
1g baking soda
85g unsalted butter 
110g brown sugar
50g white sugar
A cap of vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
Chocolate chips 
A pinch of salt


1. You will need to preheat the oven to 165 degrees C and prepare your trays by either greasing them or lining them with baking/parchement paper. 

2. Sift together the flour & baking soda into a bowl, add the salt and then set aside for later on.

3. Now you will want to melt your butter completely, you can do this however you wish, I chose to do a bain marie, but you could just use the microwave if you wish. 

4. Then mix together your melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar fully. Once you've done that, beat in your vanilla extract, egg and egg yolk until the mixture looks light and creamy. 

5. Then mix in your sifted ingredients that you left aside earlier. Now it's time to add the chocolate chips, stir them in using a wooden spoon.

6. Start to transfer the mixture into your baking trays, you want to make them into balls and keep them roughly 3 inches apart as they will spread out quite a bit. Once your happy with the sizes of them, it's time to put them in the oven. 

7. Bake them for around 15-20 minutes, but I would recommend to keep checking on them after the 10 minute mark as every oven is different. You want to get them out when they are lightly toasted and golden, but still soft. 

8. After you've taken them out of the oven, leave to cool on the baking trays for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

9. Enjoy!
