My best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. My kids absolutely love these cookies and I so love making them!
I love making these chocolate chip cookies. And I love eating them too. In fact, my whole family loves them. They are so easy to make and taste so delicious that its difficult to stop with just one or two cookie at a time.
These are crispy chocolate chip cookies and are a must in my home every year for Diwali. I make them in bite sizes and we simply love them that way. Another reason why I keep them at bite sizes is because I do make a lot of cookie varieties for the festive occasion and bite sized cookies means my guests will be able to try out all my cookies without the guilt of over-consuming these delicacies. And the same applies to my family as well.
Check out my full video on how to bake these chocolate chip cookies:
The ingredients I use for these cookies are pretty basic in the sense that these are almost always readily available in most homes. And these ingredients are the basic ones that almost all chocolate chip cookies are made of:
But the ones that make a difference to this
recipe is the combination of brown sugar and castor sugar and the addition of almonds.
I use self raising flour in this recipe and because of this, I did not add anything further to help the cookies increase in size during baking. And I have chosen to use a combination of both brown sugar and white sugar for 2 reason. The brown sugar gives this cookies a deep molasses-like flavor that is most befitting for chocolate chip cookies while the white sugar helps with the crispy texture of the cookies. Plus brown sugar is not overly sweet and when combined with dark chocolate chips, the richness of these chocolate chip cookies is just perfect. And not forgetting the roasted almond nibs. These are readily available in cake supply stores and all you need to do is roast them slightly before adding them to the cookie dough. In case you cannot find these almond nibs, you can always use whole almond. Simply chop them into small bits and roast them. I have not tried these cookies with any other nuts before, but I believe the cookies would taste just as great with any other types of roasted nuts, so long as they are slightly roasted.
You can call me crazy, but the other thing that I do to this chocolate chip cookies of mine is literally add extra chocolate chips on each cookie before baking them. You can see how I do it my video above. Once I have scooped and shaped the cookie dough (which is already mixed with the chocolate chips and roasted almond nibs) into round balls, I press 3 additional chocolate chips onto each cookie. I love the chocolate chips showing up on the cookies that way and so do it every single time I bake these cookies.
