Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is undoubtedly nothing better than dunking a crispy chocolate chip cookies in a warm cup of frothy milk. Mhmm! My kids absolutely love that.

I mean, aren’t all the kids the same? To be honest, I fondly remember when I was just a kid. I would crumble many homemade cookies and eat it like a bowl or a mug of cereal. Not necessarily healthy, but I loved it.

Every so often I make these a bit thicker, but most of the time my family loves their cookies thin and crispy.

My lovely daughter, Anna, loves microwaving it for 10 seconds and instantly making them softer, which is not bad at all. It actually tastes like freshly baked cookies.

Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love cookies!!! The only cookies that I am not a huge fan of would probably be Oreos, but if I don’t have any I would most definitely inhale a couple of Oreos as well.

I know everyone in this food blogging world is posting Xmas cookies, but I feel like these cookies are timeless and seasonless. Any day of the year is a good day to make homemade cookies.

Recipe
Yield: Makes about 36 cookies

Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Refrigerate for at least: 30 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes

Makes Approximately 3 dozen (36 cookies) It depends how large or small you make them. 

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large organic egg
  • 1 cup semisweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate, roughly chopped into chunks optional (65%-85% dark)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low; add 1/4 cup water, vanilla, and one egg. Beat until well incorporated, around 1 minute.
  3. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and chocolate chunks. (now would be a good time to add crushed or chopped nuts)
  4. Once incorporated, cover a bowl and refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes before baking. It bakes wonderfully when it’s a bit colder, and the dough is easier to work with. 
  5. Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 3 inches apart on baking sheets lined with parchment paper because the cookies will spread. You may use ice cream scoop to keep the size of the cookies the same. AirBake Natural Aluminum 2 Pack Insulated Cookie Sheet, no burn design, 14 x 12in & 16 x 14in on Amazon
  6. Bake until cookies is golden brown 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. 
  7. Remove from oven, and let cool on baking sheet 1 to 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack, and let cool completely.
  8. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.

Notes

  • You may freeze cookie dough. You can make dough balls with your ice cream scoop and place in the freezer-safe airtight container. It can be frozen for up to 3 months. You can also make 6-12 dough balls per freezer bag and put in the ziplock bags.
  • Dark chocolate brings a different level of tasty in chocolate chip cookies when mixed, of course, with chocolate chips. You may use any chocolate that you prefer. I love chocolate, but I don’t want chocolate chips to overwhelm the cookie, so this amount we personally prefer. You may add less or more. 
  • Also, you may add 1/2 to 1 cup of nuts, like walnuts or pecans. In my opinion, nuts are making these cookies even better. 
  • Baking time is per batch. If you have 3 trays/baking pans to bake and one oven, well it will take for each baking pan to bake 12-15 minutes. 
  • Tip:
  • Brush your baking pan with a bit of butter or oil and line a parchment paper on top. It is so much easier to keep the parchment paper glued on, otherwise, it just rolls and moves.

Do you like Bread Puddings? What flavor combination is your absolute favorite? Bread pudding, which I typically call sweet breakfast casserole, is the best creation. Whoever invented this is an absolute genius. My family genuinely loves it so much. I cannot even begin telling you how this entire pan was gone in less than 10 minutes. Ahh! Le Sigh! This was the time when I still ate carbs and sweets.

Homemade, easy and delicious Summer Treat

Who doesn’t like delicious ice cream in the middle of summer? Heck, we love ice-cream even in the winter time. There is something about crumbled cookies in the ice cream; it gives you just a bit of crunch, more sweetness, and one tasty bite. We just loved this ice-cream flavor as well. 

My husband, Nebs, loves ice creams. His personal favorite is Rocky Road, but after eating this one he said it is probably this one if I added a handful of nuts. It didn’t cross my mind but hey if you feel adventures please add your favorite nuts into ice cream mixture. I think pecans or walnuts would work very well with this favor.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice-cream with Brownies Parfait

Now, Ice-Cream sandwiches are something totally different. My kids’ love, love, love ice-cream sandwiches and what better way to create some memories this summer season than let them make these delicious sandwiches themselves. I think they did one amazing job. Well, my oldest one was working, but I still have these two munchkins that are still willing to do these kinds of things with me. I just enjoy every single moment.

Anna, my middle baby, is starting High School this August so I am trying not only to teach her a thing or two but to spend as much time as possible with her. They grow way to fast. Thank goodness that my 12-year-old still loves hugs and cuddles because before you know it teenage hormones will kick in and goodbye hugs until the end of high school haha. If you have teens than you probably already know this. As soon as 7th grade comes, suddenly they are wrapped up in some kind of drama. Trust me on that one!

I believe that parents should talk to their kids every single day, and at the same time allow them to express themselves with less judgment. We need to give them understanding and love rather than go into what other people going to say. Goodness! I know a thing or two about that one but I didn’t give a shit because if my daughter wanted blue or green hair I allowed her to color it. 

You know grown-ups are sometimes bigger bullies than kids are, or maybe those kids see it from their parents which I hate to say it. We can’t judge the kids by their parents or vice versa. I love my kids, and I want them to live54hb their life the best way they can. 

Anyhow, maybe I should consider having a monthly post just regarding kids; bits of advice, the things that I went through with my kids and perhaps some of you would like to join the conversation, sharing your story about it and help other parents.

Vanilla Rocky Road Ice Cream

Vanilla Rocky Road Ice Cream

With Summer knocking on our doors, I thought to start testing ice cream recipes. I got to tell you that it has been a dream to make ice cream, and every year I just go the easy way out – drive to the store and buy a couple of different ice creams. It is also a cheaper way to buy the store-bought, but I the quality and the taste will never match homemade. 

So my husband and I started to experiment with different flavors. Actually I was quite surprised that he was so willing to test the recipe with me, but nonethelessI was really excited to have 2 more hands to help me produce the best tasting ice cream. 

This is not overly sweet ice cream, and this is not your regular rocky road… I guess, we all know chocolate rocky road but I wanted to have rich, delicious, chocolaty vanilla ice cream and that’s exactly what we got here. My kids were happy as much as we were so I wanted to share this recipe with all of you, and maybe you guys will try making your own as well. 

I hope you guys like this recipe, and if you do happen to make it please tag me on Instagram @sandraseasycooking and use hashtag #sandraseasycooking so I am able to see your delicious creations and share with my readers as well.

Happy Cooking!!!
