Maggie and Chad’s Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies
In the Spring of 2017, Maggie and Chad were determined to invent the most delicious chocolate chip cookies. They spent 2 months swapping out ingredients and experimenting with different ingredient quantities. They made chocolate chip cookies almost every night to come up with what they deemed the most perfect recipe. This is the recipe that our campers use if they do a baking activity while at camp- and it hasn’t disappointed yet!
Makes 24 cookies
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup margarine
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 2 1/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Cream together sugars and margarine. Whisk in vanilla and egg. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to wet ingredients.
Add chocolate chips and stir until combined.
Form into balls (approx. 2 tablespoons of dough each).
Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, leaving room between each cookie because they will spread.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies should start to brown around the edges but will look slightly undercooked (which is what you want for ultimate chewy gooey-ness). Allow to cool slightly before removing from tray.
