Chocolate chip cookies are a classic treat that everyone loves. They’re easy to make and can be customized with different flavors or ingredients to suit any taste. Making chocolate chip cookies is also a great way to spend time in the kitchen with friends or family, as it’s an activity that everyone can enjoy. In this article, we will discuss how to make delicious chocolate chip cookies from scratch using simple ingredients and techniques.
Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 Celsius). While the oven is heating up, gather all of your ingredients together so they’re ready when you need them. You will need one cup of butter at room temperature, two cups of light brown sugar, two eggs at room temperature, one teaspoon of vanilla extract, three cups of all-purpose flour sifted together with one teaspoon of baking soda, and half a teaspoon salt. Also, have on hand two cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips for later use. Once all of these items are prepared and measured out correctly you can begin making the cookie dough! In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy then add in the eggs one at a time while continuing to mix everything together. Once the eggs are incorporated, add in the vanilla extract and mix until evenly combined.
In a separate bowl combine the sifted flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add this dry mixture to the wet ingredients while stirring everything together until it forms a thick cookie dough. Finally, fold in your two cups of chocolate chips. Your cookie dough is now ready for baking! Using a tablespoon, scoop out even-sized portions of the dough and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart from each other. Bake in your preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until they are lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy your homemade chocolate chip cookies!
