The best chocolate chip cookies

 

Fall has arrived

For many of us, that means spending more time with family, and more time in the kitchen. What better to snack on than a soft, warm cookie and an ice-cold glass of milk? Chocolate chip cookies are a must-have during the holiday season in most American homes. Whether it's for dinner parties, family meals, or work events; chocolate chip cookies can be fairly easy to whip up. Believe it or not, though, they can also be just as easy to mess up, too. We've shared our favorite recipe for the softest, chewiest cookies yet. You just have to try it out for yourself!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1 cup of packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons of warm water
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips

Directions:

  • Pre-heat the oven to 365 degrees Fahrenheit. While it warms up, microwave your butter to soften it. The butter should be mostly liquid, but not too hot. 
  • Combine sugars with the butter, and mix until a creamy texture forms. From there, add the vanilla extract and eggs. Beat until egg yolks are no longer visible. 
  • Dissolve the baking soda into the warm water, and add it to the mixture along with the salt. From there, pour the mixture into a bowl containing the flour. Mix until the dough begins to form. 
  • When all of the flour is combined into the mixture, add the chocolate chips. Turn the dough until the chips are incorporate throughout. Then place in the fridge for 15 minutes to cool.
  • Once the dough has cooled some, use a spoon to place palm-sized balls onto a non-stick baking sheet. 
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes until the edges turn golden brown and the cookies begin to "puff" up. Remove from the oven and let cool for 20-30 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
