Hello everyone, I hope you are all well. Have you started getting into the Christmas spirit yet, after all the Christmas recipes I’ve posted lately?
Or maybe you think I’m too early…?
Anyway, I hope this recipe will make you long for Christmas.
If you have any special requests when it comes to Christmas baking, leave a comment under this post and let me know.
I’ve received a lot of mail lately, even all the way from the North Pole…
From yesterday’s letter: “Can you please make some yummy chocolate cookies with sea salt on top?” Who can say no to such a request…
North Pole Wishes Cookies – Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 cup (225 g) usalted butter
- 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon (200 g) regular sugar
- 1 cup + 2 tablespoons (235 g) light brown soft sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 2 large egg yolks
- 2 3/4 cups (350 g) all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon (10 g) corn starch
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 14 oz. (400 g) dark or milk chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C).
I always use the fan setting when I make cookies, it makes them a bit more “puffed up”.
Put the butter, sugar and brown sugar into a mixing bowl and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
I use light brown muscovado sugar from Dansukker.
Add the egg and mix well before adding the egg yolks, one at a time.
Add the vanilla extract and beat for another 2 minutes.
I use a mixture of all-purpose flour and corn starch here, I think it makes the cookies even better…
Mix together the flour, corn starch, baking powder and baking soda.
Stir the cinnamon into the flour mixture before adding the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl.
Beat until everything is well blended.
Stir in the chocolate chips, but reserve some for after baking.
Using an ice cream scoop, arrange mounds of dough onto lined baking trays and sprinkle with a little sea salt.
Make sure you place them well spaced apart to allow for spreading during baking.
Bake for 10-13 minutes.
Remove from the oven and immediately place the reserved chocolate chips on top.
The result: delicious chocolate chip cookies…
This reciepe is quite large, you’ll get about 48 2-inch (5 cm) cookies from it, so there are many reasons you should share them with the people around you.
I wish you all a wonderful evening.
Hugs from me to you.
