Chocolate Chunk Cookies
These chocolate chunk cookies are so good. They are just the right mix of crispy edges and soft center, dotted with big chocolate chunks. Cookies are about one of the easiest recipes to mix and they’re just as easy by hand with a wooden spoon as with a stand mixer. By hand just takes a bit longer to get the butter fluffy, but it works just as well.
We made our first YouTube cooking video with this recipe also. My daughter really wanted to host this episode, which was great because it gave me the opportunity to try filming with my new camera. We have a lot of practice to do and some learning, but it was sooo much fun, we’re definitely going to do more. Here’s the video if you want to watch a subscribe! Enjoy the recipe!
- ½ cup butter at room temperature
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Cream together the butter and sugar for about five minutes until light and fluffy.
Add the egg and vanilla and mix to combine.
Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix to combine.
Set aside a few chocolate chunks to press on top of the cookies before they go in the oven, if desired, and then fold the rest into the batter.
Using a 1 ½ tablespoon scoop, place cookies on line cookie sheet. (I used a silicone mat)
Press chocolate chunks into the tops and then bake cookies for 10-12 minutes, until golden around the edges and cooked through.
Let cool for five minutes on wire tray. Serve.
