thoughts&stories

Chocolate chip cookies are almost like vanilla ice cream, maybe considered a bit bland, not very creative and somewhat ordinary.  But not only do I love vanilla ice cream, I love chocolate chip cookies.

To make this ordinary little cookie into something more exciting, I serve them homemade, out of the oven, piping hot and gooey — maybe with some vanilla (!) ice cream or after a cheese course.   It always brings lots of smiles to the faces of family and friends.

Making the dough beforehand, freezing it and baking later is a simple solution to a fun type dessert.

Ingredients

Directions

I have experimented with many different chocolate chip cookie recipes, including changing the types of flours, sugars and chocolate but this recipe has become my classic.  I do use whole wheat flour just to make it slightly healthier– or at least we can think so.

1
Done

Preheat oven to 350F (180C).

2
Done

In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt and using a whisk combined together well. You can also sift through a sieve. Set aside.

3
Done

Take the bowl another large bowl and cream the butter with both the brown and white sugars until fluffy (about 1 minute).

4
Done

Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until fully incorporated.

5
Done

Pour in the vanilla extract and blast on high speed for another minute.

6
Done

Switch your mixer to the lowest speed and begin to add in large spoonfuls of the flour mixture into the butter.

7
Done

Mix for about 30 seconds until it becomes a lovely dough--think of play dough.

8
Done

Add the chocolate chips- some recipes say this should be hand mixed but I use the electric mixer (just remember you never want to over mix dough or batter, work quickly).

9
Done

If making cookies immediately, use a tablespoon to scoop out dough into mounds on a baking sheet about 3 inches apart.

10
Done

Bake for 15-18 minutes.

11
Done

Freezing the dough

Place about 12 ice cream scoops of dough on a 10-inch piece of parchment paper. Repeat with remaining.

12
Done

Form the dough into a long round log, and then roll wax paper around it.

13
Done

Wrap the parchment log in aluminum foil and close tightly.

14
Done

You can use a marker to write “chocolate chip” on foil and add the date.

15
Done

Slice into 1/8-1/4 inch slices, 3-inches apart on a baking sheet.

16
Done

Place in a 350F oven and bake for 15-18 minutes.
