I have not tasted the so-called 'authentic' chocolate chip cookie.From what I've heard,it is a chewy cookie full of chocolate chips and is out of the world.The closest I've come to taste these are in the form of Hide and seek biscuits or Good Day chocolate chip biscuits.
I used to bake and try a new cookie recipe at least once in a week during my initial baking days.But as they say,once you hit bulls eye then whenever you are required to bake it,you tend to go back to the trusted recipe.Absolutely no harm in that but I feel it makes you biased towards new recipes.What I am saying is that,though I've always wanted to try out an authentic version of the same,the ease of this recipe and the taste stops me from trying it.
Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Ingredients(makes 24-26 cookies)
Butter(softened) - 1/2 cup/100gms
Powdered sugar - 1/2 cup(Cinnamon sugar or Vanilla sugar can also be used for great results)
Flour - 1 cup
Cornflour - 1/2 cup
Chocolate chips - 1/2 cup
Cream together butter and sugar with a fork or wooden spoon till it becomes creamy.
Mix in flour,cornflour and chocolate chips.Knead softly to form a smooth dough.
Keep aside for 5-10 minutes then form smooth balls(lime sized) and place on an ungreased cookie tray.
Bake for 20-24 minutes or till done.
Cool on a wire rack and store in air tight containers.
- Basic recipe of this cookie can be tweaked to make different types of cookies.You could add orange zest or coffee extract to make it taste different.
- The amount of butter to flour ratio is a bit less,so you might have to add a tsp or so milk if the dough doesn't come together.Take care not to add too much liquid since this tends to make the cookie hard.
- The amount of baking time given is for chewy-in-the-middle and crunchy-on-the-sides type of cookie.If you want crunchier cookies,flatten them a little before baking a bake for an extra two minutes.
- You could also replace 2 tbsp of cornflour with cocoa powder and add white chocolate chips in place of milk chocolate chips for an opposite version of the same recipe.
