Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies: A Classic Treat
Who doesn’t love a freshly baked, warm chocolate chip cookie? Whether you are an experienced baker or a beginner in the kitchen, homemade chocolate chip cookies are a classic and satisfying treat that everyone can enjoy.
With this easy recipe, you can make delicious cookies in just 25 minutes. The ingredients are simple and can be easily found in your local grocery store. You will need unsalted butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, table salt, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
To start, cream the softened butter and sugars until smooth. Then, beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together. Gradually add the flour mixture into the creamed mixture and blend until well combined. Stir in the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
If you have time, chill the cookie dough for 20 minutes before baking. This will help the cookies hold their shape and prevent them from spreading too much while baking.
Preheat your oven to 375° degrees and prepare your baking sheet. Grease the baking sheet or use non-stick foil, parchment paper, or a Silpat liner. With a teaspoon or a small ice cream scooper, place rounded teaspoonfuls of cookie dough on the prepared baking sheet, allowing enough room for the cookies to spread.
Bake the cookies for approximately 10 minutes, or until they are slightly golden brown around the edges. Pull the cookies out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
