Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

-- Advertisements --
The chocolate chip cookie is a all time favorite cookie of adults and children alike, and the bonus is that its really easy to make, not that we need a bonus for this delicious delight!
The chocolate chip cookie originated in the United States in the mid 1930’s, not that it matters as it has world wide popularity due to the taste and adaptability of this quick and convenient treat.   The basic version of this recipe now has many versions, ranging from double chocolate, different types of chocolate, even ingredients considered healthy have found their way inside various recipes.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 2 cups of soft unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups of chocolate chips (preferably semisweet)
  • 200 ml vanilla pudding mix (The instant kind, packaged as 6.8 ounces) – I use the Jell-o brand, it comes in a 3.4 oz box.
  • 2 cups of chopped walnuts (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Start by Preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (This converts to 175 degrees Celsius)
  2. Sift together the flour and baking soda in a separate bowl.
  3. In another large bowl, take the butter, and both sugars and mix them together well.  Mix until its a cream like mixture.
  4. Now mix in the instant pudding mix until well blended with the above mixture.
  5. Beat in the four eggs and the vanilla. extract
  6. Mix in the flour mixture in step 2.  Mix so that everything is well combined as you do not want to continue mixing to much in the next step.
  7. Now stir in the chocolate chips and the optional walnuts.
  8. Portion out a heaped tablespoon of mixture and place onto cookie sheets or baking tray (do NOT grease).  You don’t have to smooth out the mixture as it will melt into a cookie shape.
  9. With the oven already preheated to 350, bake for 10 to 12 minutes.  Check the baking at the 10 minute mark and if the edges of the cookies are golden brown, then you can remove or else bake for another 2 minutes.
  10. Remove baked cookies and let them rest.  It is preferable if you can remove them and let them cook on a wire rack as the baking tray will retain a lot of heat for a while.
Now enjoy your cookies with you favorite drink, milk?
