Chocolate Chip Cookies

An oldie but a goodie, this chocolate chip drop cookie recipe is one for the 90s kids. You know what I mean, those cookies that bend almost in half before breaking. The ones that pull apart ever so slowly leaving a melted chocolate trail behind. These are those ones. You get it.

3Add eggs
Cold eggs work best. If you notice the batter beginning to separate, stop the mixer and put the bowl in the fridge for 2-3 minutes until the batter’s temperature is between 65°-68°F.

Scrape down the bowl

Whip each egg separately into the butter mixture on high speed until incorporated and the edges of the batter consistently stick to the sides of the bowl.

Once the eggs are fully mixed into the batter, add the vanilla and whip into the mixture on medium high speed until just blended.

4Add dry mix
The goal is to reduce gluten formation and keep as much air in your dough as possible, so take it easy.

Scoop dough onto a parchment lined or baking mat lined cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches between each scoop.

7Store

Remove cookies from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.

These cookies can be kept in an airtight container for up to a week at room temperature or two months if frozen.
