The Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

We have been looking for a chewy chocolate chip cookie for a long time. This one actually stays chewy. Most cookies I find after a couple days become firm. The recipe comes from Elton Brown. It is called The Chewy . Loved this recipe. You do have to do each step to achieve the cookie you wish to have.

The Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie


1 cup butter, softened
2 1/4 cup unbleached flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp. milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375ยบ.

Melt the butter in a heavy-bottom medium saucepan over low heat.
Combine the flour, salt, baking soda and whisk together, set aside.

Take the melted butter and pour into your mixing bowl.
Add the sugar and brown sugar, cream this mixture at medium speed.
Add the egg, yolk, 2 tablespoons milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
Slowly add the flour mixture until thoroughly combined.
Stir in the chocolate chips.

Chill the dough in frig for about 1 hour in bowl.
Use your #20 ice cream scoop and place the batter onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 14 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.

I love chocolate chip cookies and used to try at least one new recipe a week. Too hot in the summer for me but the boys regret it that I've stopped. Must try this...pray for rain on the west side of Canada! Grin.
