Simple but delicious cookie invented in the United States. The basic dough is composed of butter and both brown and white sugar and guess what? Someone came up with the idea of adding chocolate. In 1938, Ruth Graves Wakefield added a few chopped up pieces of his Nestle chocolate in the dough and created this wonderful product, nowadays consumed all over the world.
In this modern world, the need for cookies that are delicious and super healthy at the same time has grown a lot. For that purpose oatmeal and nuts have replaced the flour and the chocolate went from semi-sweetened to dark 70% chocolate. Vegan versions use vegan butter, vegan chocolate, and substitutions for eggs.
Making the chocolate chip cookie's dough is very simple. Here are the basic ingredients you need:
- 250g butter
- 220g brown sugar
- 100g white sugar
- 250g flour
- 1 whole egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1tbs vanilla
- 1tbs baking soda
- chocolate chips
Prep the needed ingredients preheat the oven to 170 degrees C and you can get started. Mix the dry ingredients (flour and baking soda) in a bowl and the wet in another one (beat first the butter and sugar and add first the whole egg followed by the egg yolk and the vanilla). Then bring all that together and add the chocolate chips, as much as you want.
Take your cup of coffee, place a pillow in front of the oven and watch the miracle happens. It takes about 10 minutes.
