The best chocolate chip cookie recipe. Crispy around the edges, soft and chewy in the centre and loaded with chocolate chips.Welcome to my first post. It is the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. The chocolate chip cookie was the start of my journey in the food blog world. I was so determined to find the best recipe out there, that I must have looked over a hundred different ones online. I narrowed it down to four that seemed interesting, gave them a try, and took what I learned and liked from each. Then I came up with my own version, tweaked it multiple times to get it just right, and here it is (drum roll please), the best chocolate chip cookie recipe EVER! This bakery style cookie is crispy around the edges, soft and chewy in the middle, loaded with chocolate chips, and the best part is, it’s even chewier the next day!

The best chocolate chip cookie recipe. Crispy around the edges, soft and chewy in the centre and loaded with chocolate chips.The original version of this recipe was by Jacques Torres, and was made famous by The New York Times. The secret to this awesome recipe lies in combinating bread flour and cake flour, instead of using all-purpose flour. The bread flour gives the cookies their chewy texture and the cake flour makes the cookies soft. Increasing the bread flour versus cake flour makes this recipe even chewier than the original, brilliant idea by Buttercream Bakehouse. If you don’t normally use cake flour and bread flour on a regular basis, just buy what you need for  this recipe from the Bulk Barn. This recipe also requires the dough to be chilled for 24hrs, but trust me, it’s worth the wait. The chilling allows the ingredients to marry and when baking the chilled cookie dough, it will cook faster on the outside and slower in the middle. Thus resulting in a crispy outer layer, and chewy centre.

Description

These chocolate chip cookies are crispy around the edges, soft and chewy in the middle and loaded with chocolate chips.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4  cups unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Mix bread flour, cake flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt with a hand whisk in a bowl, set aside.
  2. Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition, then add vanilla.
  4. Add dry ingredients until just combined.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Line a large cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper, then drop rounded cookie dough using a medium cookie scoop or a heaping tablespoon.  Add a few extra chocolate chips on top if desired.  (You can just refrigerate the dough as is and form the rounded dough when ready to bake, but forming the dough before chilling will save you a lot of muscle work.)
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 24-36hrs.
  8. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.  Place 12 rounded cookie doughs 2 inches apart.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes or just until edges are golden brown.
  10. Let the cookies continue to bake on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack and enjoy!

Notes

Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
