Test Recipe : Choc Chip cookies

I’ve been wanting to try out the chocolate chip recipe from this website Choc Chip Perfection and finally got round to doing it the other day.

Wendy Gaynor’s ‘Perfect’ Chocolate Chunk Cookies
8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups semisweet chunks (preferably imported). {I used chocolate chips – but only 2 cups coz I forgot to buy more}

1. Place the butter in a large bowl and cream at high speed until fluffy. Add the sugars and beat until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until completely mixed. (pic 2 & 3)

2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt and baking soda. Add to the butter mixture at low speed until just combined and add vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed, scraping bowl down, until blended. Do not overmix.

3. Add chocolate chunks and mix till thoroughly combined. Refrigerate batter until cold, preferably overnight. {I only left it for like 10 minutes coz I was rushing for time}(pic 4)

4. Preheat a conventional oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit or a convection oven to 300 degrees {I put 170 degrees celcius in my microwave with the BAKE function}, and line several baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop heaping spoonfuls of batter 2 inches apart on the lined baking sheets and bake, turning tray once, until golden brown around edges and soft (but not bubbly), about 9 minutes in a convection oven or 12 in a conventional one. Cool on a wire rack.

Yield: 36 to 72 cookies, depending on size.{I forgot to count how many pieces I made and forgot to take a pic of the finished cookies}

How did i find it? Well the cookies were kinda flat and had a bit too much salt and sugar. The 2 cups of chocolate chips were not enough. Besides that, the cookie is delicious. Its not the hard type of cookie like famous amos or the huge soft one like Bakin’ Boys or Mrs Fields, but something in between, crunchy but a lil soft in the middle and when you bite into the cookie, the chocolate chips are melted…ahhh

I probably would try this recipe again but make these modifications to the ingredients.

1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups semisweet chunks (preferably imported)

**Refridgerate the dough!!**

Happy baking~
