Simple and Sweet Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I love baking. I think I’ve said that before in my previous
posts, but in my blog, you will find quite a few baking recipes because I loveeee cakes,
brownies, sweets, and essentially any desserts. 🙂

I made these soft chewy chocolate chip cookies with Rae the
other day for Valentine’s Day and I just wanted to share with you the results!
We followed the Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe on because it
had over 5,000 reviews and was rated one of the top chocolate chip cookies on
the site. These cookies were meant to be very large, but as you will see later,
it didn’t turn out that well because we needed it to fit into our cookie jar (plus it was over baked… whoops).

I would highly suggest either using dark chocolate chips or
decrease the amount of sugar by 10%. The reason is because the cookie will turn
out VERY sweet if you use milk chocolate chips (which we did because that was
all that’s left on Valentine’s Day) and the same amount of sugar suggested by the
The amount of cookie dough will yield about 1 ½ dozen large
cookies or about 30-35 smaller cookies. 
We made a trial batch and we made them as large as the
recipe indicated
After the suggested baking time, they may not look golden
brown, but let me tell you, it is actually done and you should take it out of
the oven. We unfortunately left them in the oven for an extra five to seven
minutes because the nonexistent golden brown colour threw us off and that in
turn made our cookies crispy, not chewy.
For our second batch, we decreased the size of the cookie to
about 1/3 its original size as well as decreased the baking time by half (so ~8 mins) to
ensure it does not over bake.
They actually turned
out way better! They were soft, chewy, and just perfectly delicious. Put
these in a nice cookie jar and give it to someone as a housewarming gift or for
Valentine’s day! Whoever receives it will appreciate all the effort and love
you put into making them. 🙂
Happy Eating!
