Calling all you chocolate chip cookie lovers out there!! Where you at? I know you guys are out there somewhere, and I need to grab your attention for a moment.Chocolate chip cookies seem like they are not really highly spoken of anymore. I feel like it’s the 1 cookie everyone knows about, but it lost its popularity. Anyway, I am bringing them back yall. I love chocolate chip cookies but I am picky. They must be crispy on the outside but have a soft chewy center.True story Nestor took cookies to Costco today and one of his coworkers said the best chocolate chip cookies ever. Oh and my family already had a dozen and a half, so I think this recipe is pretty dang good. What is the key ingredient? Molasses people! Molasses gives a rich flavor and a lovely chewy texture.

Kouzounas Kitchen’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

Servings: 20-25

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of butter room temperature ( 1 cube of butter)
  • 1 3/4 cup of organic sugar + 3 tablespoons of molasses
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla flavoring
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour + 1/4 cup
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips plus reserve extra for baking

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  2. Make sure to have the sugar and molasses mixed together thoroughly.
  3. In a bowl of a mixer, mix the butter and sugar until creamy. About 4 minutes. Add the vanilla, eggs, and salt and mix until combined. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the mixer to make sure all ingredients are combined.
  4. While the mixer is running on low, add the flour in slowly. Then fold in the chocolate chips. (You can add more or less chocolate chips.)
  5. Now take about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of dough and roll in your hand. Then place directly on a baking sheet. Make sure to leave some space between each cookie, as they will expand in the oven.
  6. Once the cookies are on the baking sheet, top cookies off with a few chocolate chips in the center. Pat down lightly to place chocolate chips on top.
  7. Bake for about 12-15 minutes until golden brown. If you want soft cookies, bake for less time. If you want crispier cookies bake an additional few minutes until golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and let cook on wire rack.

Enjoy cookie fans!
