Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie

Last week, when J approached me to organize a bake cookie session with her 6 yrs old, I agreed immediately.  I always wanted to do cut out cookies with kids.   It was a fun activity to do when my kids were young.

Then, I didn't expect it to be so hot and humid back home.  So my original plan was dashed and I have to settle for a drop cookie recipe.

Friends had a few suggestions and I was contemplating which one to try.  I remembered Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie was quite popular many years ago.  Done a search in my old and new blog and I wonder why I never attempt on this one before.



Findings: This dough is extremely forgiving.  It is a very good recipe to work with kids.  Even in this humid weather, the dough didn't create a mess at all.  It is also easy to shape into ball.  

The cookie dough doesn't spread too much so it is good that you shape it into smaller bit size.  My first batch was way too big so I scaled down on the subsequent two trays.  

Half the recipe if you are baking just for the family and if you like crunchy cookies, these are for you.

Adapted: Nestle

What you need:

2 1/4 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
225g butter, softened
105g castor sugar
160g brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
300g semisweet chocolate morsels

Method:

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Sift flour, baking soda and salt together. 

Cream butter, sugars until light and creamy.

Add eggs one at a time, beat until incorporated in each addition.

Beat in flour mixture.

Add in chocolate chip.  Fold to combine.

Using a rounded tablespoon, scoop it onto a lined baking sheet.

Bake for 9 – 11 mins or until golden brown. 

Cool on baking sheets for 2 mins and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

    1. Hi Marin,

      I have already scaled down the castor sugar. As for brown sugar, it is not as sweet. I also scaled down the chocolate chips so it is not as sweet as the original.

    1. the stated is already adjusted to my family's liking. So far, my friends who tried it didn't complain it was too sweet so I am not sure whether it is okay with your parents as sweetness is subjective to individual.

      If you are concern, perhaps reduce chocolated chip.
