Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies!

Warm Puppy Cafe June 2019

When warm from the oven these are my ultimate sweet craving!

The very first time I arrived in the US, my older sister Roxanne took us clothes and make up shopping at a mall in Virginia. That was where I saw a Mrs. Fields cookie shop. I’ve been reading various US magazines growing up and read (and dreamt!!) about these very cookies. A few minutes and $40 later, I was munching on cookies from Mrs. Fields, tasting and trying to figure out what the ingredients are with every bite. It was a big bag of cookies so, of course I shared them!

I had been baking and cooking and testing out lots of different recipes any chance I get since I was about 12. I came across this recipe when I first got the Thermomix last year. It’s so easy you can make it anytime a craving hits. Bonus that it tastes and looks so good!

Look at these beauties! Made with chocolate chips and walnuts.

This recipe makes about 30 pieces, and no, it won’t cost you anywhere near the $40 I paid for a couple of dozens (I think…I don’t remember exactly how many it was but it wasn’t that much). Double the recipe if needed and make someone’s day by sharing some!

Cooling slightly before moving to the cooling rack.

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz dark chocolate, cut into pieces (or just use semi-sweet chocolate chips)
  • 4 oz unsalted butter
  • 3.5 oz granulated sugar
  • 3.5 oz dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste
  • 7 oz unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • nuts of choice, optional

Procedure:

Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare 2 sheet pans and set aside.

Place 6 oz chocolate in the Thermomix bowl. Cover and set to 3 seconds on speed 3. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. (Or you can just pour 6 oz of semi sweet chocolate chips into a small bowl and set aside).

Place butter, granulated and brown sugars, egg, and vanilla in the bowl, cover and set to 2 minutes, speed 3.

Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cover and set to 40 seconds, speed 4. Scrape down sides of the bowl with a spatula. Add chocolate (and nuts if using) and mix 30 seconds, speed 2, reverse blade.

Form into walnut sized balls (I used 2 spoons to create a rounded shape) and place about 2 inches apart on the prepared sheets.

Bake 10 – 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Enjoy!
