A Classic Treat with a Twist
Who doesn’t love a warm and gooey chocolate chip cookie? This timeless treat has been a favorite for generations, and today we’re sharing a special recipe that takes it to the next level. With the use of cookie cutters, you can create fun and unique shapes that are sure to impress your family and friends. Let’s dive into this delightful chocolate chip cookie cutter recipe!
Gather Your Ingredients
Before we begin, make sure you have all the necessary ingredients. You’ll need:
- 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Now that you have everything ready, let’s get started:
1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth and fluffy.
4. Beat in the vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, until well combined.
5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in tough cookies.
6. Fold in the chocolate chips, ensuring they’re evenly distributed throughout the dough.
7. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 1/4 inch.
8. Use your favorite cookie cutters to cut out shapes from the dough. Place the cutouts onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each cookie.
9. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. The centers may still appear soft, but they will firm up as the cookies cool.
10. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
