Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookie

Jump to RecipePrint Recipe

Chocolate chip cookies are one of my kids favorite snack .Although I make them quite often , I always wanted to get that perfect bakery style consistency .Finally ,I was very happy with how this awesome recipe turned out .This is going to be my new go to recipe to impress my loved ones and guests ,for the perfect delicious chocolate chip cookie .I also added walnuts for that extra bite in it .

Some of the tips and tricks I learnt in the process of finding the recipe,is to get all the ingredients to room temperature, especially the eggs and butter .The butter should be so soft that, if one presses it against a finger ,it easily dents .However make sure that it is not completely melted. The other interesting fact, is to chill the dough in the refrigerator for about 24 to 72 hours before baking .The dough sitting in the fridge helps marinate the ingredients and somehow improves the flavors of the cookie.Of course , if you are short on time ,you can bake right away too. The chilling however definitely enhances the taste .This recipe also uses more brown sugar than white, which makes it even more flavorful and bakery like. Also remember as always not to over bake the cookies, and to take them out of the oven when it is almost done but not fully done .It is okay if it is not fully cooked in the center .It continues cooking when the cookies are cooling on the baking pan and later on the cooling rack.

Last but not the least wanted to share a great news. I am extremely pleased to have completed 3 years of blogging with WordPress .February 27 , 2020 was the third blogiversary of .I want to thank all my wonderful readers and bloggers who have constantly supported me and for all the encouragement which keep me going. I am looking forward to a great year again.

Thank you to all my readers for your support!

Here’s the recipe for the most delicious cookie and hope you will try it out!

    Mmmmm these looks yum! I’ve recently made cookies (my second ever attempt) and they looked awful but didn’t taste too bad. Yours look awesome, just the right texture. I never would have thought of refrigerating the dough first – I’ll save this recipe in case I feel like risking life & limb in the kitchen again (can you tell I’m not a good baker?!) Can I just ask, because in the UK recipes are always grams or mls, how big the cup size is that you refer to?

    Huuuuge congrats on the 3 year milestone & Happy Blogiversary!!

Thanks for always sharing such great tips, recipes and love from your warm heart. Your encouragement for me and other bloggers means more than you know!

    And secondly, this recipe looks AMAZING. I must be honest, I’m a bit of a sucker for a great chocolate chip cookie. The way you described these with a little bit of softness in the middle – oh my! Even if they firm up a bit after cooling, that’s still perfect. I can see how you’d easily impress friends & loved ones with this recipe!

    Thank you so much for sharing. Congratulations again and many many blessings to you! I believe the best is yet to come! ♥
