Chocolate Chip Cookies
Here's a recipe for soft and chewy Chocolate Chip cookies that you will feel less guilty chomping down because it contains whole wheat flour too!
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
- 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 cup about 6 ounces chocolate chip morsels (I use a mix of milk and semi-sweet in a 50:50 ratio)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the dry ingredients: In a bowl, whisk together both flours, salt, cornstarch and baking soda.
Mix the wet ingredients:Set up an electric mixer with the paddle attachment.Add butter (microwave it for 15 seconds if not kept at room temperature) followed by both sugars.Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Stop and scrape as needed. Reduce speed to low; add eggs (one at a time) and beat till they are combined. Add vanilla and mix well
Mix the wet and dry ingredients:Add the flour mixture and mix until they are combined (don't overdo it - maybe for a minute. The mixture should not be extremely sticky, should be almost dough like but slightly sticky. Add flour as needed to get the consistency right).Add the chocolate chips and mix them for 15 seconds. You are ready to bake.
Get ready to bake: Line a cookie baking sheet with parchment paper;Use an ice-cream spoon to scoop cookie dough and place them around 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies start to brown lightly around the edges (Ovens differ - so start checking on the cookies around 8 minutes)
Cool down process: Remove the cookies from the oven;wait for couple of minutes and then transfer to a wire rack and let them cool completely (approximately 5-6 minutes) before chomping them down :)
