Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated: Jun 22, 2020

If this isn't a classic, then I don't know what is.




Holiday mornings, cold & snowy afternoons, snacks after school, there are so many reasons why a chocolate chip cookie and milk makes sense.

“When is the last time that you had a warm chocolate chip cookie?”

I used to be intimidated by baking in general. If you want to find a good way to ease into baking, then make cookies. They are simple, bake quickly, and the results are satisfying.


I did some research on how best to allow your cookies to rise and the weirdest ingredient came up...apple cider vinegar. When I think of apple cider vinegar, I think of strong smells and cleaning supplies. Never did I ever think that I should be putting it in a cookie. When you get to the recipe section and see the 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar that you need to add in, it's not a typo. I promise that you will NOT taste it! Promise!


Apple cider vinegar is used to activate the baking soda and help the cookie rise. Who wants a flat paper-thin cookie? Not I.


Yield: Makes 24-36 cookies depending on how you size them


Ingredients:

  1. 2 cups of flour

  2. 1 tsp of baking soda

  3. 1/2 tsp of salt

  4. 3/4 cup of brown sugar ( try light brown sugar)

  5. 2/3 cup of granulated sugar

  6. 1 cup of melted butter ( 25 seconds in the microwave should do it)

  7. 2 tsp of vanilla extract ( get the real stuff)

  8. 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar

  9. 1 large egg

  10. 2 1/4 cups of chocolate chips

What Do I Do?:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. You could also use a silicone baking sheet.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and the salt and set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, mix the butter, sugars, vanilla extract, vinegar, until the batter is smooth. Add in the egg.

  4. Mix the dry and wet mixtures. Add the chocolate chips.

  5. Using a medium-sized cookie scoop, scoop out the cookie batter about 3 inches apart on to your parchment paper or silicone sheet.

  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

  7. Let the cookies sit on the sheet for about 8-10 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.

  8. Enjoy with a glass of Oat Milk, Almond Milk, Cow Milk, etc.
