Cookie Recipe

This year, I had to do a science experiment to graduate. For some reason, baking cookies was considered science. I went on a journey to find the perfect cookie and I did, but I don't know where the document with the recipe went. These cookies are great snack during reading. I suggest making these cookies beforehand. If you let it sit in the fridge for 2-3 days, the flavors develop and taste better. These are a great snack when you're reading.


-1 cup (220 g) of butter room temperature
(DON'T MELT THE BUTTER-the cookies will spread out faster and sink. Just leave it out for half an hour to 1 hour.)
-3/4 (165 g) cup of packed, light brown sugar
(this helps make cookie crunchy)
-1/4 (50 g) cup of granulated sugar
-2 eggs
-2 teaspoons of vanilla
-2 1/4 cups (288 g) of all purpose flour
-1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
-1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon of salt
(brings out the sweetness to cookies/any sweet food)
-2 cups (350 grams) of chocolate chips.


1. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 degree C) and line your cookie tray or brownie tray with parchment paper, if you intend to eat it fresh bake. You should set it to this temperature, so the Maillard Reaction occurs. Fancy terminology for caramelization.
2. THIS STEP IS OPTIONABLE. Take all your dry ingredients (sugar, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt) and sift it.
3. Cube your butter and whip it until it's fluffy with electronic mixer.
4. Add the dry ingredients little by little into the butter and continue to mix with a wooden spoon. Once all the dry ingredients are incorporated, add the vanilla extract and eggs. Then add chocolate chips.
5. If you're not eating it now and want the cookies to have more flavor, pop the batter into the fridge and refrigerate for 2-3 days.
6. Put in the oven and cook for 8-11 minutes. I don't use a timer. Some researchers said that once it turns golden brown and you can smell it, then it's done.
7. Take the cookies off the tray and let it rest for 2-3 minutes.
