The original from the USA - incredibly delicious!
Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whether as a small hostess gift for good friends or all by yourself: American Chocolate Chip Cookies are simply irresistible when enjoyed warm or cold. Really no one can resist the delicious taste of these cookies. And the great thing about them: they are super easy to make, simple to prepare and keep fresh for several days in good conditions.

The little cookies are real sugar and calorie bombs. If you like it a little less sweet, you can use ⅓ of the amount for each type of sugar or replace the white sugar with xylitol. The latter at the same time saves some calories.

  • 250 g soft butter
  • 200 g brown sugar (cane sugar)
  • 175 g white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 375 g flour (type 405)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 300 g Chocolate Chips* / chopped chocolate
  • 200 g macadamia nuts

Required utensils

  • 2 bowls
  • Hand mixer / food processor
  • Tablespoon / ice cream scoop
  • 2 baking trays
  • Baking paper
Preheat the oven to 180 °C top and bottom heat (convection oven: 150 °C) and line baking sheets with baking paper and make ready.
Place the room-warm butter, vanilla extract, salt, and the white and brown sugar in a bowl and beat with a food processor until a creamy mixture is formed. Then add the eggs and stir them in as well.
Combine the baking powder and flour and then slowly add to the butter mixture, stirring constantly until a smooth dough is formed. Then fold in the chocolate chips and the nuts with a dough scraper and place the dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator for one hour. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and portion it out onto the baking sheet covered with baking paper using an ice cream scoop (a tablespoon also works) and sprinkle with the remaining chocolate. Caution: The cookies will melt during baking, so be sure to leave enough space between them.
Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the cookies reach the desired consistency. Keep in mind that the cookies will not harden until they cool. If you prefer your chocolate chip cookies soft, leave them in the oven for only 10 minutes. Before you remove the cookies from the baking paper, let them cool for 5 to 10 minutes first. Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
Tip / Note:

Instead of macadamia nuts, you can also use almonds or a mixture of dried fruits and nuts to customize the cookies to your taste. Another tip: put some salt flakes on your cookies!

Rezept für original amerikansiche Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft or crunchy: the best chocolate chip cookies

Whether you like chocolate chip cookies warm or cold, soft or crispy, divides minds. The important thing is that you like your cookies. If you like them more crispy and crumbly, you should leave them in the oven a little longer and let them air cool. This gives them a light brown crust and a rather crumbly texture.

If you prefer your cookies more soft and moist, leave them in the oven for only about 10 minutes and don’t let them cool completely before placing them in airtight tins or jars. However, when doing this, make sure to separate your cookies with some baking paper so you can get them out easier later. Without the paper, the delicious chocolate chip cookies would stick together.

How long did Chocolate Chip Cookies last?

Your homemade cookies will keep in a sealable cookie jar or jars for about two weeks. If you like your cookies soft and moist, you should store them in airtight jars so they don’t lose their moisture. To do this, simply stack the cookies while they are still lukewarm and separated with baking paper in as small a jar as possible. This way they stay juicy and do not stick together due to the baking paper.

American cookies: don’t forget to chill your dough!

Cookie dough is particularly susceptible to warm temperatures due to the large amount of butter and becomes extremely soft and sticky when made. Thus, it is difficult to portion on the baking sheet and quickly causes despair for many amateur bakers.

By chilling your dough in the refrigerator for an hour (or two) after making it, the butter will harden again and the cookie dough will be much easier to work with.

Properly portion the cookie dough.

The best way to do this is with an ice cream scoop, like the ones you see in ice cream parlors. If you don’t have one on hand, use a tablespoon. When doing this, make sure you leave enough space between each ball of dough on the tray. The heat in the oven softens the butter in the cookie dough and the cookies run wide. If you don’t space them enough, your cookies will combine into one big patty of dough. But don’t worry, you can easily separate your cookies after baking using a pastry scraper or knife should they touch.

What chocolate for the chocolate chip cookies

Without chocolate no chocolate chip cookies – logical! However, which chocolate you take is up to you and does not follow any strict rule. Personally, I like dark chocolate for my cookies the best. But you can also make these delicious American cookies with milk and white chocolate in just 10-12 minutes. Experimentation pays off!
