The Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Written by Roar Elias

Chewy Chocolate chip cookies have always been some of the most cherished types of cookies. Chocolate and cookies make a really great combination for an absolute all time recipe. I don't think one can ever have enough chocolate chip cookies.

Surely, it's pretty hard to resist the light, creamy buttery flavor of a homemade chocolate chip cookie with a luscious taste and texture of brownies in a cookie shape. The cookies are incorporated with butter and a blend of brown and white sugars, which makes an indulgent and chewy cookie. If you like having your cookies gooey and chewy, here's a delightful chocolate chip recipe for you.

This is an absolutely delicious recipe for your busy lifestyle - easy to prepare and yummy just the same. The cookies are soft and chewy, but with a lightly crispy shell. If you don't fancy the crunchiness, you may substitute the shortening with more butter.

Make a good choice of butter and vanilla for better cookies. Most vanilla extracts are mainly alcohol with a little flavoring so find one with low alcohol percentage. The butter should be softened and not melted.

I have also discovered that smaller non-sticky cookie sheets make for excellent cookies. It helps if you use the mixer on the dough separating the sticks of butter to be put into the oven. There should be enough circulation in the oven. For you to get the best chocolate cookies, I have found that you need to follow the procedure closely. The directions surely make a difference in the ultimate result.

As is noticeable, I am a known slave of chewy chocolate chip cookies. Who ever invented the cookies certainly deserves a Nobel peace prize!
