Serves: 30 to 35 Cookies
  • Unsalted butter – 226 gms (1 cup), at room temperature
  • Granulated white sugar – 150 gms (3/4th cup)
  • Light brown sugar – 160 gms (3/4th cup firmly packed)
  • Eggs – 2, large
  • Pure vanilla extract – 1 & ½ tsp
  • All-purpose flour/refined flour – 295 gms (2 & ¼ cup)
  • Baking soda – 1 tsp
  • Salt – ½ tsp
  • Chocolate chips – 270 gms (1 & ½ cup)
  1. Preheat your oven to 190 degrees C (375 degrees F) with rack in center of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Take the butter in a bowl and beat it with a hand mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the white and brown sugars and beat until fluffy for about 2 minutes.
  3. Beat in eggs, one at a time, making sure to beat well after each addition. Add the vanilla and beat until incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  4. Combine the dry ingredients – flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. Add them to the egg mixture and beat until incorporated using a wire whisk or spatula adding the chocolate chips about half way through mixing. If you find the dough very soft, cover and refrigerate until firm for 30 minutes to two hours.
  5. Take a spoon of the dough and flatten them with palm. Place them on the prepared baking sheets. Try to make all the cookies of same sizes so that the baking time remains same for each; so it’s a good idea to use the same spoon for measuring the dough for each cookie.
  6. Bake the chocolate chip cookies for about 10 - 14 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges. Take them out of the oven and let them cook on wire rack. They will firm up while cooling down. Enjoy the cookies with a glass of warm milk!
Tip: The cookies may seem soft in the middle even when the sides have browned. Do take them out of the oven at this point as the cookies continue to cook while cooling down. If you bake beyond this point, they will either burn at the bottom or turn extremely hard eventually. I am telling this from my own experience!
