Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
We’re starting with a simple first recipe – featuring an old-fashioned favorite! These aren't just any old chocolate chip cookies - they are super-rich, soft and chewy, that everyone can enjoy. Everyone that likes soft cookies, that is. These mouth-watering delectable cookies feature organic ingredients available at our shop – and for your baking convenience, we have put together a custom mixture of all of the finest organic dry ingredients needed to make these great tasting cookies. In our busy lives, making that perfect snack using our custom chocolate chip cookie mix is a breeze. So let’s get started! All you need to add is one stick of butter, one egg, and a bit of vanilla extract. So here we go!
1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Microwave the stick of butter for about 40 – 50 seconds to really soften it up- you want it to be liquid but not hot. This is key and we’ll leave it up to you as to how you’ll perform this feat of cookery magic that flies in the face of convention!
In your So Co Choco ChiCo Mix package there’s a smaller package with the sugar; dump this into the butter and mix well.
Add the egg and vanilla, but don’t mix it too much at this point – just a minimal amount to incorporate the egg into the mixture. This is also key, if you mix the egg too much it will become stiff and that will mean hard cookies.
Remove the remaining smaller package (with the chocolate chips) from your Mix package and put it aside, then add the flour mix into the butter, sugar, and egg mixture. Mix until it more or less holds together in a big ball shape – it may be sticky but that’s alright.
Add the chocolate chips and mix into the dough by hand – just enough to distribute them uniformly through the dough.
Form the dough into 12 balls about an inch or an inch and a half in diameter, and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet or pan.
Bake at 350o for 9 – 11 minutes, until the edges just start to brown. They might not look done in the middle, but the key is not to leave them in too long!
Finally, the last of the many key points – allow the baked cookies to cool on the pan for 30 minutes before removing. Except for the one or two you just have to eat right away of course! After 30 minutes they will have condensed into a luscious mass of exquisite cookiedom for your enjoyment!
