The Easiest & Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Also seen on RunningtoBake
Ingredients1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup, dark
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
DirectionsPreheat your oven to 375 degrees F & line 2 baking sheets with silicone mats, parchment paper, tinfoil or grease with butter.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt with a whisk. Feel free to be liberal with the salt. Since you are using unsalted butter, the added salt adds a certain something to these cookies. Set bowl aside.
In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. You can also use a hand mixer or if you're really brave, by hand. Once everything is nice and smooth add in the corn syrup, egg and vanilla and mix until everything is combined.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and slowly add in the flour mixture. Mix until JUST combined.
Stir in the glorious chocolate chips. I say 1 1/2 cups, but I probably put in close to 2 cups. I just love chocolate.
Using a tablespoon, scoop out dough and place on a baking sheet and flatten slightly with your fingers. You'll want to leave plenty of space between the cookies so the can spread out (which they will). Bake for 12 mins. If you want a less chewy cookie, leave them in for another 2 minutes or so. Just until the edges start to turn a dark golden brown!
