I like to call this chocolate chip cookie recipe a basic one because it is easy to make. You don’t even need a mixer for this, if you have a wooden spoon and a mixing bowl, then you are good to go. I have adapted it for other cookie recipes, too.
Don’t be afraid to adjust the amount of chocolate morsels to your liking. I made this with 1 cup brown sugar instead of the half cup brown and half cup white sugar stated below and it still turned out great!
Here’s the first chocolate chip cookies recipe I tried:
Tools and equipment
- measuring cups and spoons
- baking sheet
- wooden spoon
- 2 mixing bowls
3 c all-purpose flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 c butter
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
2 pcs whole eggs
2 t vanilla extract
1 c chocolate chips morsels
- Preheat oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F).
- Sift the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, cream the butter using a wooden spoon and add sugar gradually.
- Add the eggs one at a time. Mix well after each addition.
- Mix in the vanilla extract.
- Add the dry ingredients gradually. The cookie dough will start coming together.
- Stir in the chocolate chips morsels.
- Drop about 1-2 tablespoon of cookie dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Shape it using a spoon or your hands.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are brown around the edges.
I made these chocolate cookies during the first day of baking class. They are about 3.5 inches in diameter. These cookies are soft and a little chewy.
I made a crunchier batch by lowering the temperature once the edges starts to brown and baking for a couple more minutes. Don’t forget to check it every now and then!
