Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies are everything a chocolate chip cookie should be. They are soft and chewy in the middle and a little crispy on the edges and of course full of chocolate!
I am a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies, especially if they are warm. They are my true love and my favorite cookie of all times.
Recently I was in Utah visiting my son and daughter in law and she had made a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies. Being one to never pass up a fresh, warm chocolate chip cookie I of course enjoyed one. Maybe two. Okay, three! They were so yummy. And because you can never have too many chocolate chip cookie recipes, I had to ask her which recipe she had used.
Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
They were just the way I like my chocolate chip cookies, soft and chewy in the middle and crispy on the edges. She had found the recipe over at Betty Crocker and had made a couple of tweeks to them that made them the best easy chocolate chip cookie ever!
How to Make Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Beat the butter in a stand mixer until really light and fluffy, 4-5 minutes. This puts more air into the dough which creates a light and fluffy cookie.
- Add in eggs after the butter and sugar are light and fluffy.
- Add in remaining dry ingredients and mix just until incorporated. Do not over mix. I like to pulse the mixer so that I don’t over mix.
- Mix in mini chocolate chips. You can of course use regular size chips but I loved the mini chips in the cookies, the chocolate was more evenly distributed through out the cookie. There is nothing worse than taking a bite of a chocolate chip cookie and not getting any chocolate.
I have made these easy chocolate chip cookies several times since coming home and they are definitely our new favorite cookie.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches
I even used them to make ice cream sandwiches and they were even more delicious with some homemade cinnamon ice cream between them!
