I have a love for all sweets, but when it comes to cookies, I can’t resist a good, chewy chocolate chip cookie. This simple recipe makes it easy to whip up a homemade batch of chewy goodness. I promise you won’t be able to eat just one!
Chocolate chip cookie recipes come in all kinds of variations. Some will produce crisp, crunchy cookies, while other recipes will produce chewy, soft cookies. My personal favorite chocolate chip cookies are soft and chewy in the middle with chunks of chocolate in every bite.
This easy recipe consists of simple ingredients that bake into delicious chocolate chip cookies that are sweet, buttery, and chewy in the middle.
- Using a paddle attachment, cream together the butter, cream cheese, sugar, light brown sugar, and vanilla extract for about 2 minutes.
- Scrape down the sides of the mixture.
- Add the eggs, beating well after each egg.
- Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and beat well.
- Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours (I like to chill overnight).
- When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375.
- Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Form 3″ mounds of dough on the baking sheets, making sure to leave at least 2 inches of space between each mound.
- Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
- Let the cookies cool for 2 minutes before removing them from the baking sheets.
- When you are forming mounds of dough on the cookie sheets, do not let the chilled dough get too warm before baking. This will cause your cookies to come out flat.
- Keep a watchful eye on the cookies as they bake. The center of the cookies may look uncooked, but do not let this fool you into overbaking them. Once the edges start to turn golden brown, the cookies are done!
