Another Chewy… I Mean Really Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

by zesty on February 29, 2012 · 4 comments

Middle of the week is here.  Can you believe it?  The basement renovation is coming along quite nicely with really no hiccups in sight.  Floor is almost completed and we are moving on to trimming out the windows and doors today.  Yesterday was a snow day around here with school cancelled and what better thing to do on a snow day than bake cookies.

Not just any cookies I might add, a chewy chocolate chip cookie.  I was perusing Jenna’s blog, Eat Live Run, and I came across her favorite chocolate chip cookie.  I quickly looked at one of my chewy chocolate chip cookie and compared the ingredients and thought…. heck I am going to try hers.  There were a couple of slight variations that definitely warranted a test in the kitchen.  I knew the builders would eat the cookies so I would not  have to eat the whole batch.

The big difference that I noted was “DARK” brown sugar.  This created a complex deep sweetness and ensures the cookies stays soft and chewy.  It really does!


Alright, so the end results were astonishing.  I am not sure if I ever baked a better chocolate chip cookie before.  My hat goes off to Jenna for sharing this recipe and forcing me to buy dark brown sugar.  These are a definite keeper.  A slight variation if you were so adventurous would be to toss in a bag of dark chocolate chips and you could almost call them healthy.

Have an awesome Wednesday.  Stay tuned for some basement pics in the coming week.

Take care

what do you mean by 21/2 cups? is it 21/2 or 2 and a half?

I have tried tackling the chewy chocolate chip gookie for a long time, and have failed miserably all but once. Do you think having a butter subsyitute like smart balance or soy butter would destroy the cookie? Would you be willing to try it and share your results? I and I’m sure others would be so grateful!
