The humble choc chip cookie is one of the most beloved sweet treats across the globe. It’s sweet, simple and surprisingly satisfying and almost every family has their own secret recipe, handed down from one generation to another. The original has been traced back to Massachusetts where the owner of a small inn accidently invented the delectable little dessert when she decided to add chopped-up chocolate to a batch of butter cookies. This simple chocolate chip cookie recipe has been replicated, adapted and adjusted countless times in the 75 years that have followed.
In the quest to perfect the chewiest, most gooey, crispy-edged chocolate chip cookie, the process has become complicated and often contradictory. Some recipes call for the addition of cornflour, some recommend adding more brown sugar than white sugar (or vice versa) and often they will advise at least 24 hours of refrigeration before baking. Each adjustment will yield different results. Refrigerated dough will hold the shape for thick chocolate chip cookies (another reason people add corn flour), and adding an extra egg yolk can assist in baking moist chocolate chip cookies. If you prefer thin cookies, melt your butter before mixing.
The best chocolate chip cookie recipe is a simple chocolate chip recipe that is quick and easy to whip up, just like the original. More than just a sweet snack, the first choc chip cookie was actually invented as an accompaniment to ice cream which is still the perfect way to serve them – especially when they are fresh out of the oven. For a modern twist on it’s first purpose, use two and serve the ice cream in between for an ice-cream sandwich.
You can have these cookies ready to eat in just 30 minutes, but how about getting creative? For a fresh take on a classic, try these jumbo M&Ms cookies or choc chip oat cookies. These orange and sultana bran rock cakes and nut-free muesli bars make healthy alternatives to chocolate chip cookies, or if you are looking for a bigger chocolate fix then whip up this chocolate apple cake or even a chocolate sheet cake with peanut butter ganache.
