Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Our Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe is amazing! Chocolate chip cookies are arguably America’s favorite cookie (though we don’t think there’s actually much argument). But what constitutes a great chocolate chipper is the subject of passionate feelings and debate. For some, crispy edges and some crunch are attractive attributes, but these cookies are not for them. No, these are for the staunch supporters of the chewy, the tender, the oh-so-soft cookie that has the classic toffee-flavored batter studded with plenty of chocolate chips. Even among our editors and test kitchens, the texture preference makes its divisions, and those among them who are Team Soft and Chewy stand by this recipe as their one-and-only preferred choice. The ingredients (and the amounts used) that were calibrated in our test kitchens will reliably produce pillowy, meltingly tender results so you can count on getting the exact kind of cookie you want, every time
Ingredients for Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 to 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips (12 to 24 oz)
Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl with electric mixer, beat granulated sugar, brown sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and eggs until well blended. Beat in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.
On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
Slide the cookies off onto a wire cooling rack so that air can circulate around them and cool them evenly.
The combination of granulated and brown sugar, teamed up with nearly the same amount of butter, is a winning recipe for a soft and chewy versus crispy cookie. Watch the baking time too—don’t overbake the cookies if you want a soft texture once they’re cool.
“Since this is a big-batch recipe, you can drop half of the dough by spoonfuls onto cookie sheets and pop them into the freezer for later. Once the mounds are frozen, place them in an airtight container and store them in the freezer until you’re ready to bake again. Arrange the frozen dough onto ungreased cookie sheets again and bake 5 minutes longer than if they were fresh.”
Ove Glove Oven Mitt Customer Reviews
Really protect your hands. Follow directions and don’t let them get wet. Fingers of glove are a little narrow, may cause a problem for someone with larger hands. But really protect hands from heat better than any other type of pot holder I’ve tried. – Kimberly, July 2, 2020
I had a pair of red gloves that lost their insulation strength. It took burning a couple fingers when taking a pan out to convince me to get a new pair. This is my first Ove pair, and they are proving to be quite sturdy and protective. –
Great for cast iron! We love cooking in cast iron, but of course the pan gets hot, so you need to make sure your hand is protected while cooking. Plus at those really high temps you want to make sure your glove can handle it. So these are perfect for all cooking occasions! –
I love these gloves. For me gloves are better I can handle baking dishes better, mittens are too bumblesome for me and I get burned. I feel secure handling hot dishes cause I know I will not be burned. –
Best oven gloves! They protect while giving more flexibility than a traditional mitt. –
They are very helpful when baking. I do not get burned. My last pair are still very serviceable. However, they have been used so long it’s just time to retire them. On the other hand. These are cheaply made. Many loose strings inside the fingers and uni handed. My old ones had a right and left hand. Much more comfortable. These are also much lighter weight. –
I am happy with this pot holder. Surprised by the quality as most seen on TV stuff is junk. I am prone to burns and think these gloves will offer “superior protection”! They are a tad big on me but that is not a hindrance. But, they are just right on my adult son. –
These gloves are great. They have replaced all my pot holders. I’ve been using them for almost a year and so far I haven’t felt any heat through them. They are also wonderful for getting hot items out of the microwave. I highly recommend that everyone have a pair in their kitchen. –
I have a mitt that I have had about 20 years and my son ask what brand it was so I thought that they would make a good Easter gift to go with a griddle. So they are as described. Wonderful! Thick, flexible and protect from heat. –
My ove glove has been down many paths. Between Grill and Stove and old age it has seen better days. I have looked everywhere to find the ove gloves every time I was in all the stores and no one had it. Low and behold I found it online not jut one but two of them. They are the best gloves I have found. –
I have used cooking gloves for years and love them so I got them for my daughter for a Christmas gift this year. They are just what they say, you can put them on and reach in the oven and pull out the item without any problem. The fact that the fingers are separate makes the grip easier and safer so less chance of dropping the food. –
These are the original OVE gloves, they are the best pot holders available. I use them to check baked potatoes on the grill to make sure they are done. Then just remove the baked potatoes and corn right off the grill. These will protect your hands removing just about anything from an oven or grill. Well worth the price. –
