I have an eggless version of these chocolate chip cookies, but this recipe has always been my go-to recipe for some quick and easy chocolate chip cookies. There are so many chocolate chip cookies recipes out there and I have tried many of them. The thing is with cookies it depends on your preference as some people prefer their choc chip cookies harder and some people, like me, prefer their cookies soft and chewy. If you’re looking for the perfect soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies recipe then this is the chocolate cookies recipe for you.
Each ingredient has its own role to contribute to get the perfect cookie for you. I use melted butter in this recipe because it results in a chewier texture. Most cookie recipes do use softened butter so you can use softened instead if you prefer. With the brown sugar and the granulated sugar, the ratios will differ from recipe to recipe. I prefer to use more granulated sugar as I am not much of a brown sugar fan although if you want a really chewy cookie, it is better to increase the quantity of brown sugar. So, in this recipe I use light brown sugar, but you could use dark brown sugar.
The reason I chill this dough is to ensure that the cookies made are thick. The melted butter can sometimes cause the cookies to become too thin so this kind of offsets that effect. I know it seems really long to chill the cookie dough, but it really helps the flavours to intensify and you end up with the best of cookies. I like to leave my cookies to refrigerate overnight and then bake them the next day. If you don’t leave the dough to chill the cookies will spread a lot and you will end up with really thin cookies. I really love this recipe because it is so easy to make, and you can make it with young children as well. That’s how easy it is. The texture of the cookies will depend on the ratio of the ingredients that you use.
Use this recipe for the perfect buttery chocolate chip cookies.
