How to make Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ready to learn how to make chocolate chip cookies with me?

I got inspired in making this cookie recipe because it’s Christmas! It is a good excuse to indulge in a limitless taste test while making it, hahaha. I used bittersweet chocolate chips, but you can use any chocolate chips that you want. I love the chewy and soft texture on the inside with you break it in half. However, do not over bake as it can get hard. I think making this cookie recipe with our without mix-ins will both turn out amazingly delicious! Come, join, and bake with me!

How to make Chocolate Chip Cookies



Cookie Dough

Item’s you’ll need

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar (adjust to your liking)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar (adjust to your liking)

Crush the walnuts (Optional)

Place walnuts in a zip lock. Using a meat tenderizer or any heavy object, strike the walnuts against the chopping board to break them into small pieces. You may also use a knife to chop it. Set aside for later.

Mix the ingredients

To make the cookie dough, mix the dry ingredients (flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, and baking soda) in a large bowl until well incorporated. Then set aside. In a separate bowl (or a stand mixer bowl), place the softened unsalted butter at a medium-low speed. Cream until well combined. Pour the eggs with the vanilla extract in it and continue to mix until well incorporated. Gradually add the flour mixture little by little until the bowl becomes empty. Increase the speed as necessary (I increased the speed to medium-high). Using a spatula, push the mixture to the center as needed until well combined.

Place the cookie dough

Using a 1 ½ tbsp ice cream scoop, scoop a spoon of the cookie dough and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat the process until the cookie dough is consumed. Refrigerate for 10-20 minutes.
