Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Do you ever get in the mood for something sweet late at night? I sure do and most nights when I am in the mood for something sweet, I am also not in the mood to make something that requires a lot of equipment or time.

Well, these chewy chocolate chips cookies are the perfect solution! They have a soft chewy center, golden brown edges and are PACKED with chocolate chips. But do you want to know the best part about this recipe? It doesn't require the use of an electric mixer and makes just 12 cookies!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

{yield: 12 cookies}

1 cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. Kosher salt
½ cup packed light brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
5 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet (you will only need one because its a half batch of cookies!) with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt together, then set aside.

In a separate bowl, add the brown sugar, granulated sugar and melted butter and whisk until combined. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until smooth. Carefully add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and fold together until a soft dough forms. The last step is to add in the cup of chocolate chips!

Using a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop balls of dough and place them on the parchment lined cookie sheet leaving 2 inches of space. 

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes (make sure to rotate the sheet halfway through) or until the edges are a light golden brown. Let the cookies cool slightly on the sheet before transferring to a wire rack.  

These fast and super yummy chewy chocolate chip cookies will stay fresh for 3 to 4 days if placed in an air tight container, but mine never seem to last that long....
