soft-baked duo chocolate chip cookies

I really dig these soft-baked cookies.

And that’s sayin’ something since I usually do not even like cookies. I think it has a lot to do with getting sore throats very often when I was a kid. The smell of cookies reminds me of sore throats. So cookies were (generally) yucky.

I do like making them though.

Recently I made a batch of Soft-baked White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies with Butterscotch Chips. I ate one to test that they were okay. And I quite like them. I think it is the lack of crunchiness that I like.

So today, I made another batch of cookies. This time, with dark and white chocolate chips.

Here’s how.

In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and the sugars until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Once the egg has been incorporated, add the sifted flour/ baking soda/ cornflour/ salt in 2 batches.

Mix until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and pulse to distribute evenly throughout the batter.

Cover the bowl with sling film and chill the batter for at least 2 hours before baking. See here for reason

Roll the cookie dough into balls, about 1-inch (2.5cm in diameter). Place them on a lined baking tray. Place them on a lined baking tray.

Bake at 180°C for 8-10 minutes for soft cookies, or 10-12 minutes for a bit of crunchiness.

Remove the tray from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the tray for 10 minutes before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.

The cookies can be stored in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to a week. You can also stored the baked cookies in the freeze for up to 3 months. Alternatively, you can freeze the cookie dough balls (in an air-tight) container for up to 3 months. Thaw before baking.
