The sega continues…in search for the Perfect Choc Chip Cookies


Some of you may have recalled my obsession with chocolate chip cookies. There must be a password out there to decode those beautifully baked cookies from Subway or Famous Amos! Zen chef left me a comment some time ago about his favorite cookie recipes and if someone saw me then, they probably would see my eyes sparkle and mind ticking away.

So I have decided to embark on a long term chocolate chip cookie quest- Bring it on people! I have been toying with the idea on having a “Cookie Bake off” soon, so stay tune! Let me know what you think and if you will be interested in one.

There are so many choc chip cookie recipes out there, that they are mind boogling. I like mine with crisp edges and slight crumbly middle. My dream cookie would be those you can find at a deli-the HUGE ones.

But back to Zen Chef’s recipe. He left 3 recipes on his blog, inviting me to try them. So I did! I attempted the Flat and Chewy ones first and they were fantastic! So so so addictive. Seriously one of my favorite choc chip recipes so far. Thanks Zen chef!!

And yes! I did try his other 2 versions as well. Stay tuned!!

Zen Chef’s Flat and Chewy Cookies (40 cookies)
2 cups of flour
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tablespoon of sea salt
226 grams butter
1 1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
2 cups of dark choc bits
2 cups of toasted walnuts

1) Preheat oven to 180C. Line baking trays with baking paper.

2) Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs then vanilla. Add sifted flour, baking soda and salt. Fold through. Fold choc and walnuts. Chill the dough (I chilled for around 4 hrs).

3) Roll a tablespoon of dough in balls and flatten them. Bake for 15-20 minutes till edges become golden. Cool and transfer to rack. Chill dough in between batches.

ps-calling more choc chip recipes if you have any! I’m determine to crack the cookie code! =)

  5. It’s always amazed me how many version of chocolate chip cookies there are out there. If you made a different chocolate chip cookie recipe each day for the rest of your life, I think it would take you about 100,000 years to complete the all. Whoever invented the chocolate chip cookie should be rich…but I have a feeling they’re not.
