You know how sometimes you wake up in the morning, and you feel like it's a chocolate chip cookie kind of day?
Maybe for you, it's mee goreng or Ramly burger or KBBQ day.
Well, I had that chocolate chip cookie day, and I didn't want to buy and eat them, because I know the sugar content in those are too high! And too sweet for my liking!
So, while lying down, pretending to sleep so my kids would sleep, I googled here and there to find the right recipe that won't waste my ingredients.
I also went to read their reviews, and found one that seems promising, and to my liking of a chocolate chip cookie.
Soft and chewy in the middle, but not cakey, and not too crunchy.
I only had one 250g of butter, so I need to be sure that this recipe works. I waited for the kids (except Adam) to wake up from their nap, and got them involved in the baking. I didn't let them "roll" the cookies onto the baking tray because our friends were coming over, and I didn't want the kitchen to be super messy. They were okay with it. So win. Hah.
I was supposed to roll the cookie dough after scooping them one by one, but I didn't have the time so I just scoop them with a baking spoon and place them onto the tray.
They came out fine. All looking different, because like us, we are all different right. Heh.
Anyways, I made some smaller ones too and they turned out a bit more crunchy and crispier. I preferred the ones that are bigger. I think I used the 1 tablespoon's spoon. They came out chewy and not sweet, with a hint of some bitterness from the dark chocolate.
1) Do not overbake them. Because if you put the cookies longer in the oven, they will not be chewy anymore. The recipe says 7-9 minutes. I did mine at 8 minutes. They will not look brown, but they are amazeballs!
2) Measure everything ingredients correctly, especially the flour. If you put more or less than the recipe, it may not turned out as how it is supposed to be, but you might still love it anyways.
So, go give it a try, and let me know if this is a win or a no-go for you :)
