Chocolate chip cookies

Last friday i saw a video on youtube from joyofbaking.com about making chocolate chip cookies. In this recipe it was clearly said you can store the dough in a refridgerator or even in a freezer and back them later. I do buy chocolate chip cookies regularly. So i thought: “I’m gonna try this!”

I got the chocolate chips at a baker closeby. The nuts i got at the Marqt. The sugar i got at the supermarket. The flour, butter, eggs and baking soda i already had. I didn’t get any vanilla extract. To be honest, i forgot about them. But i don’t miss it too much.

The ingredients

  • 260 grams all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 170 grams unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 90 grams powdered sugar
  • 140 grams firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 250 grams semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 110 grams finely chopped hazelnuts (can use pecans, walnuts, almonds and/or macadamia nuts)

I made the dough this saturday. I baked eight, from 250 grams of dough. I got around one kilo all together, rolled three in plastic wrap and put those in the freezer.

Weigh the sugar. Light brown sugar and powdered sugar. You can use crystal sugar of course, but the powdered sugar does give a slightly softer cookie.

The nuts are warmed in the oven at 180º C for around 6-7 minutes. Once they are cooled, you put them in a clean dish cloth and bang it with something like a rolling pin to break the nuts.

Warm up the oven till 165º C. From one roll make eight cookies. Put them on a baking paper which i put on a light rack. Next time i will use the solid baking tray. The cookies now are slightly dented at the bottom.

The finished cookies! These are baked for around 15 minutes. Next time i will go slightly shorter, 13 minutes. These cookies are still lovely, but slightly more crisp then i want them to be.

The original video!
My cookies are round rolled and smaller than the ones in the video. It’s all up to personal preference of course. Enjoy!
