Chocolate Chip Cookies are an evergreen, they are never out of fashion and you can eat them in a thousand different ways: with milk at breakfast, as a quick meal in the afternoon or as a guilty pleasure while watching your favorite series. Lastly, since it's summer, you can fill them with ice cream and and enjoy your cookies as a fresh and delicious snack.
Are you craving cookies now? Well, you're in the right place. Here are Chef Gaston Storace's Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Makes about 16 cookies
3 cups of all-purpose flour
2 cups of chocolate chips
2 cup of sugar
1 cup of butter
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon of baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon of sea salt
PREHEAT THE OVEN
Preheat the oven at 375ºF
MAKE THE DOUGH
In a large bowl mix the all-purpose flour with the ½ teaspoon of baking soda, the ½ teaspoon of baking powder and the ¼ teaspoon of salt. Once done, set aside.
Mix the butter at room temperature with the sugar, until the mixture becomes white and creamy. Add the first egg and stir until combined; when the texture becomes homogeneous add the second egg.
Now it's time to add all the dry ingredients little at a time. At the end you can incorporate the chocolate chips.
Make 16 small balls by using your hand or with the help of an ice cream spoon. Place the balls on a baking sheet and let them cook in the oven for 10 minutes. Take them out when they barely start to become brown. They don't have to be crunchy, but soft in the middle.
Enjoy with some milk and with your friends!
Chef tip: you can freeze the cookie dough for up to two months, when you are ready to bake them, preheat the oven and let the balls cook for around 12 minutes.
