Soft Chewy Cookies



I LOVE cookies.  Cookies are like intense, compact version of cakes.  I have good memories of cookies.  Somehow, I have vivid happy memories of me eating yummy cookies.  I guess cookies is my answer to temporary happiness. lol

I got this recipe from the internet.  After looking at it for a few months, I decided to make some changes.  I read that bread flour makes cookies chewy.  So I swapped out some of the plain flour for bread flour.  Swapping half the white sugar for brown sugar should make it softer and flavourful.  I cut down on the salt coz 1 tsp of salt sounds like a lot.  2 Tbsp of vanilla sounds like overdose too!  Lastly I doubled the recipe. Duh.

It’s a good thing I doubled it.  It’s worth my fat space.



Soft Chewy Cookies

1 cup plain flour

1 cup bread flour

2/3 cup white sugar

2/3 cup brown sugar (i didn’t pack it)

3/4 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp salt

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

1 stick melted butter (salted)

chocolate chips


Melt butter in a pot, allowing it to brown a little.  Let it cool (otherwise chocolate chips will melt. I learnt it the hard way).  Then add in the sugar and eggs.  Mix it well. Add in the rest of the ingredients.

Refrigerate it for a few hours or overnight.

Each cookie dough should weigh about 50-60g. Flatten the dough to about 1 cm thickness. Don’t crowd the cookie sheet.  Bake at 180c for about 14-15 min.

They store well in an air tight container for a few days.
