Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been using the same chocolate chip cookie recipe for years. Maybe seven to be exact. I use the one that is on the back of the Hersey’s chocolate chip bag, but don’t think that’s the magic behind my cookies, I have made many adaptations over the years.  I originally started out with semi sweet chips, and then I moved on to milk chocolate. I also used to add a bit of lemon juice with the belief that they made my cookies softer. Today I have decided to take a different reproach. I wanted cookies with more of a brown sugar taste, so I did just that! I substituted all brown sugar for white sugar, and I added some molasses to taste. These are best cookies I have made thus far!

Chocolate Chip Cookies


2 ¼ cups Dark brown sugar

2 sticks soften butter

2 eggs

1 ½ Tbsp Molasses

1 Tbsp Vanilla

2 ½ cups flour

1 Tsp baking soda

½ Tsp salt

12 oz chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375

Cream butter and sugar until combined. One at a time add eggs, then vanilla, and molasses. In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients and add to wet mixture. Add chips.  Scoop to desired size and roll into a ball so they will be nice and round then baking. Place on a parchment lined sheet pan and bake for about ten minutes. They may seem under baked, but leave them on the pan for a few minutes and the residual heat will cook them further. Slightly under baked cookies result in softer cookies. Transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy! Store in an air tight container for 3-4 days.

Hello fellow bloggers. My name is Bailey, but you can call me Bae. I am a 22 year old college graduate, and an aspiring pastry chef. I have recently been released into the real, wild, culinary world, and I am slowly finding my way. In the midst of it all I plan on exploring restaurants, pursuing food photography, critiquing recipes as well as creating my own, as well as reading as many chef biographies as my free time allows. I think it is important to know about the chefs that have paved the way for us fellow culinarians. It also allows you to sound educated when conversing with others in the field. I am very excited to see where this adventure takes me; I hope you will come along for the ride!
