Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you’re a fan of chocolate, you will love this oozing-with-chocolate cookie recipe.

 

When I’m short on time, this chocolate chip cookie recipe is my go-to. It’s inspired by the delicious chocolate chip cookies I discovered in Canada. I still remember their rich chocolate taste and how the chocolate chips would practically burst at the seams. It also made me realize that there’s no such thing as too much chocolate.

In addition to being a chocoholic, I am also a big fan of easy recipes. I believe that keeping it simple is often the most delicious way to eat, and this is one of the simplest cookie recipes to prepare, with little effort.

So, when I need to make a delicious chocolaty dessert quickly and want to appeal to the kids and adults, this chocolate chip cookie recipe is a winner.

I use a hefty amount of chocolate chips or chunks to make these chocolate chip cookies super decadent. I also add an extra egg yolk to make them fluffier. To add that rich and creamy taste, I use Irish butter.

If you remember, take the butter out of the fridge at least half-an hour before making this recipe so it’s easier for you to work with it. I also recommend using room-temperature ingredients, so while you’re at it, take the eggs out of the fridge as well.

The other key ingredient in this recipe is coconut. By adding a little bit of coconut flakes or milk, the taste of chocolate is even more accented. You don’t need a lot, just a hint will do.

For this recipe you can use all-purpose wheat flour, but if you want to make your cookies extra light and crispy,  try using  “Krupczatka” Polish flour, type 500, a coarsely milled wheat flour that’s excellent for making all kinds of cookies.

  9. Prepare a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

  10. Using a large spoon, scoop some of the cookie dough and place it onto the cookie sheet. Repeat for the rest until all of the cookie dough is used. You should be able to make between 12-14 cookies, or 24 small ones.

  11. Place the formed cookies in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes max, depending on how crispy you want them to turn out. I baked mine for 23 minutes and they were very crispy and dark brown color.
