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 tsp vanilla
1 stick melted butter (salted)
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.
