Chocolate Chip Cookies-3

Throw It Together Chocolate Chip Cookies

Roughly, 1275 hours, 53 days, 7 weeks.

Also -the number of results that google comes up with in 0.56 seconds for the search query, “chocolate chip cookies”

Soon this number is going to turn to 4,590,001 because I’m going to hit publish on this toffee laced, caramely chewy cookie recipe.

Chocolate chip cookies is a staple, one of those recipes that everyone has a different variation of, one of those recipes I was never able to get right. My cookies always came out puffy, mini eiffel towers and very very crunchy. After testing so many recipes (why is this always the story with chocolate chip cookies?) I have finally found my go to recipe. Very quick (in fact, you throw in all the ingredients right after browning the butter, plus, there’s no creaming involved!), caramely, and chewy with so many melted puddles of chocolate. The whole process takes like 10 minutes and most of it is just browning the butter šŸ˜€

Quick Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies-4


// A friend made these and wanted them crunchy so she left them in the oven to “cool.” So if you prefer crunchy to chewy (who are you?!) you can try that. Otherwise, a +2-3 minute baking time should also do the trick šŸ˜‰

Throw-it-together Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips/chunks
salt for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 400 F

Brown the butter over the stove by heating the butter on the stove over medium heat, occasionally gently swirling, until the mixture smells nutty and is flecked with brown specks that sink to the bottom. Take it off the heat and immediately mix in brown sugar, vanilla extract (watch out! it will bubble). Add in the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.

Mix in the egg (you might need to wait for ~5 minutes or else the egg may cook), Lastly, add the chocolate chips. This, I mix half and push the other half into the top of the cookie as the melty chocolate puddles along with the marbled pattern appeals to me but if you want it fully melted / don't want it marbled, mix in all the chocolate chips or push them in / wait until the dough is cooled respectively.

Spoon 2-3 tbsp for each cookie on a parchment lined baking sheet, about 2-3 inches apart. Press on the extra chocolate chips if desired. Sprinkle with salt :D

Bake for 5-7 minutes -do not overbake. Enjoy warm and melty ;)

    I must say those look perfect to me. I’ve been wanting to do a skillet cookie lately and I think this dough would be amazing baked all at once in a skillet with ice cream all on top!!

    I finally got to make these yesterday and it’s without doubt the best cookie recipe ever. I loved how chewy they turned out. I added in roasted almonds and some milk choc chips (because I didn’t have any dark) and it was great! My go to recipe from now on. šŸ™ˆšŸ™ˆšŸ™ˆ

    Oh my – the melty chocolate looks so delicious! I’m so curious to try these cookies since they require no creaming – Pinned!
