My aunty gave me a recipe for soft chewing chocolate chocolate cookie which I just had to try. I hope I did justice to the recipe.
I ended up making double the batter because of two farewell occasions. Some for work colleagues and some for the children in the school that I am volunteering in. So I made some pretty and decorated, and some classic homestyle-looking cookies.
These cookies just make you speechless after the first bite. It's so soft and slightly chewy, and it just crumbles then melts in your mouth. Delightful and delicious.
Soft Chew Chocolate Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tablespoon coco power
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Or semisweet white chocolate chips
Or 1 cup each of semisweet chocolate chip and semisweet white chocolate chips
Or 2/3 cup each of both chocolates with 2/3 cup mini size marshmallow .
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Sift together the flour, baking soda ,coco power and salt set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted dry ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches ( 7 cm ) apart.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
My Aunty's baking tips on this recipe :)
1. I will set alarm of baking time to 13 minutes, and check on back of the cookie if light brown yet and also cookie edges if lightly toast or burn . So, you have chance not to over bake it. If edges of cookie is burn, better take it out. Cookie always taste good even under cook, but when it over bake and burn then that sucks.
2. Don't press cookie flat this time , because due to the baking, it will go flat itself and keep moisture inside them.
Happy baking my dear!!! Chocolate cookie always go well with cold milk in summer!!!
