I've been baking since 2014 but this journey has little snippets before that year. You may read my "history" in this baking journey here.
I am now selling my homemade baked goodies to my friends and some friends of friends and some other people thru online selling at Ja's a Piece of Cake's Instagram.
Since I've been very passionate about this journey, I took up a short course/NC II last February until April, which I will share to you once I got my my NC II Certificate from TESDA. :)
But today, let me share to you a recipe for this all-time favorite and very classic snack for kids and kids at heart, the Chocolate Chip Cookies.
The recipe is adapted from Ana Olson. :)
1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
1/2 cup Brown Sugar, packed light
1/2 cup White Sugar
1 Egg, large & in room temperature
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 1/4 cup All-purpose Flour
1 tbsp Cornstarch
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
1 cup Toasted Pecan Nuts, coarsely chopped (optional)
- Dry ingredients: In a medium bowl, sift the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt together. Mix well.
- Cream butter, brown sugar and white sugar together.
- Beat in egg and vanilla extract.
- Add the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Stir until blended.
- Add chocolate chips. (Add more 1/4 cup of chocolate chips if you want. Because i know you want it. Hahaha.)
- Add the toasted pecan nuts. (But i prefer not to add nuts since i want it to be classic!)
- Scoop the cookie dough using an ice cream scoop or 1 tbsp, shape them into balls. (I used 1/2tbsp for smaller sizes.)
- Place onto baking sheet with parchment paper. Chill for at least an hour.
- Preheat the oven to 325F before putting the baking sheet inside.
- Bake for 15-18 minutes, until browned around the edges. (I bake mine around 13-14 minutes since it is small sizes.)
- Cool on the baking tray for at least 2 minutes before transferring it to cooling rack. (That's the longest 2 minutes of your life, for sure! Hahah!)
Best serve with cold milk! Yay!
