Honestly, if you’re in search of the ultimate chocolate chip cookie, look no further. This isn’t about quirky ingredients or fancy techniques. It’s about that classic, mouth-watering, “this is exactly what I was craving” kind of cookie. The kind that’s soft in the center, but has those irresistibly crispy edges.
Now, I’ve got a couple of secrets up my sleeve to ensure these cookies are the dreamiest you’ve ever tasted. The rave reviews from countless bakers can vouch for this claim! One non-negotiable step? Letting the dough chill. Trust me, it’s a game changer. The secret ingredient? Cornstarch! It gives that super soft and thick texture we all crave.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
Cookie Crafting Steps
Set your oven to a cozy 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a bowl, cream the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until it’s as smooth as a dream. Gradually beat in the eggs, then fold in the vanilla. Now, here’s a trick – dissolve the baking soda in hot water, then add it to the mix along with salt.
Gently blend in the flour, before giving a grand entrance to the chocolate chips and nuts.
Using a generous spoon, place dollops of your mixture onto pans that are ungreased and waiting.
Bake in the oven for around 10 minutes. When the edges take on a golden hue, you know they’re done to perfection.
Enjoy your homemade pieces of heaven! 🍪
