Mighty Delicious Chocolate Chips Cookies

Jul 31, 2012

Happiness is baking chocolate chip cookies for your loved ones on a Sunday afternoon, or any day for that matter.

That's exactly what I did two days ago. I had a chocolate craving that day (like most of the days I should confess!) so I decided to channel my urge into a baking fiesta. Can you ever go wrong with chocolate?

Here is my decadent recipe with loads of butter and rich dark chocolate chips:

1 1/2 cup of flour
2 cups of rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup of packed brown sugar
1 cup of butter, softened (not melted)
1 egg at room temperature
1 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Preheat the oven at 375°F (180°C).
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, rolled oats and set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the brown sugar and butter with a wooden spoon until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add the flour mixture gradually. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop by the cookie mixture by tablespoon onto lined baking trays with parchment paper and bake 8-10 minutes.
Take them out of the oven once the edges turn brown. This way your cookies will be crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
Then, let them cool on a baking sheet for about 5 minutes and remove them on wire racks.

Happy baking!
