Though I have posted so many bakes on my blog, I realized that I haven't posted the basic Chocolate Chip Cookies. In fact, I have even posted a vegan version of the chocolate chip cookies, but somehow missed these simple cookies. This is an eggless version, I have used curd/yoghurt instead and the cookies came out perfect..
Need To Have
- All Purpose Flour/Maida - 3/4 cup
- Butter - 1/4 cup
- Granulated Sugar - 1/4 cup
- Light Brown Sugar - 1/4 cup
- Vanilla Extract - 1/2 teaspoon
- Curd/Yogurt - 2 tablespoons
- Baking Soda - 1/4 teaspoon
- Salt - 1/8 teaspoon
- Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips - 1/2 cup
Beat together melted butter and both the sugars. Add the vanilla extract, yogurt and mix.
Sift the flour, baking soda and salt and add it to the wet ingredients. Now add the chocolate chips and mix everything together and refrigerator for about an hour.
After an hour, make small lemon size balls, flatten them a little and arrange them on a baking sheet, leaving a little space between the balls. Bake them at 175 C for about 15 to 17 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, let it cool a bit, then remove the cookies, cool them completely and store.
I have used only all purpose flour, but you can replace half of it with whole wheat flour or even try using just whole wheat flour only.
Layer the baking sheet with aluminium foil, easy to remove the cookies and easy to clean too.
Makes about 18 to 20 cookies.
For softer cookies bake for less than 15 minutes, again this varies from oven to oven.
