Chocolate Chip Cookies

Easy to make cookies and you do not need any special equipment. Perfect cookie to bake with your kids. After long time I baked cookies with Ryan. It was totally fun and feeling good that he liked them very much. He was constantly in the kitchen while they were in the oven.. and He kept saying "OMG, they smell awesome..  can we eat it now" and he was looking into the oven every two minutes. Once they were out from the oven , he could not wait anymore. When I said they need to be cooled little bit, he said 'lets keep them in the refrigerator and eat fast' :)

Baking with kids is always fun and Kids feel accomplished. This recipe is from Foodnetwork website. Original recipe does not need any hand mixer. However I used a hand mixer because it will be easy for Ryan to mix and it will be done quickly too. You can just whisk with your hands as per the original recipe



  • 2 and 1/4 Cups of All Purpose Flour / maida
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4  Cup Unsalted Butter at room temperature
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Granulated white Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs at room temperature
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 and 1/2 Cups of Chocolate Chips or chunks


1. In a bowl add all purpose flour, baking soda and salt and mix them together /whisk. Set aside

2. In a large bowl, add butter, granulated white sugar and brown sugar and beat with a electric hand mixer until it is creamy. Original recipe does not require hand mixer, you can whisk using hands

3. Then add one egg at a time and beat until the mixture is smooth
4. Stir in vanilla extract

5. Now add the dry ingredients we prepared at step number 1 in this wet ingredient we prepared at step number two. Add 2 tablespoon at a time. Mix using the hand mixer each time you add flour

6. When you are done adding dry ingredients into wet ingredients, add chocolate chips  into the cookie batter and using a spatula gently fold/ stir  them in the batter

7. Refrigerate the batter for 1 hour

8. Preheat the oven to 180 C

9. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper / butter paper

10. Scoop out 2 tablespoons of chilled cookie batter

11. Using slightly wet hands, roll the batter into balls

12. Flatten them a little bit and arrange it on the lined cookie sheet

13. Space the cookies about 2 inches apart, because they spread while baking

14. Bake it in the oven at 180 C for 16 to 18 minutes. Keep watching the cookies after 15 minutes. Bake until the edges are crispy and golden

15. If you have a bigger oven, you can place 2 cookies sheets at the same time and bake. Since I have a smaller convection oven I baked multiple times. Each time I returned the cookie batter to refrigerator while previous batch of the cookies are getting baked

16. Once out of the oven cool the cookies completely and serve.

17. Store it in airtight container and they stay fresh for few days

Please note: Use a different parchment paper for the next set of cookies to bake


  1. Nothing quite like warm chocolate chip cookies to make home smell heavenly! These look delish, I must bake a batch soon!
