Aah, finally I gathered the courage to try my favorite cookies, the chocolate chip one. If you remember from a few posts back, my cookies did not turn as good as I wanted them to. Sometimes they were crumbly and sometimes they were too soft. And a couple of times they got too brown, which left me devastated (ok, that's strong, I was just a bit sad). Then I took up on perfecting cookies and in my last post here I made more than hundred as a gift for others.
This endeavour gave me the courage to try the chocolate chip cookies. You may wonder, why so late? Well... if they didn't turn out good, won't it be criminal to waste that much chocolate :O, shhh.
2 7/8 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 - 2 cups chocolate chips
Sift flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together and put aside. Melt butter. In a bowl, beat butter and sugars together until light and creamy. Beat in the eggs. Now add the flour and stir with a spatula until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
At this stage the dough would be sticky, and it might seem that there are too many chocolate chips, but don't worry, you will be thankful after the cookies are baked.
Drop cookies on a cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper, with a tablespoon. Leave distance between cookis to allow them to expand while baking.
Bake for 9-10 minutes at 190 C/375 F.
