Ingredient List

Let’s Gather the Ingredients!

Before starting the recipe, gather all ingredients listed below. You don’t want to start mixing and then realize you don’t have everything you need.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • 2 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Make sure that your ingredients are fresh and of high-quality. It is essential to use unsalted butter in this recipe, so we can control the amount of salt added. If you only have salted butter, reduce the kosher salt by half. The higher the cacao percentage in your chocolate chips, the better! I recommend using 60% or above for that extra rich chocolate flavor.

With all these delicious ingredients in hand, we can now proceed to make the Chew Crew Cookie Batter Recipe.

The Recipe How-To

 It's hard to resist but trust us, raw cookie dough is the perfect snack!
It’s hard to resist but trust us, raw cookie dough is the perfect snack!

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Before beginning to prepare the cookie dough, ensure your oven is preheated to the right temperature. Use a stand mixer or a mixing bowl and a whisk to combine 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons of baking soda, and ½ teaspoon salt in a separate mixing bowl. Sift the dry ingredients over a large mixing bowl if you don’t have a sifter.

Step 2: In another bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until well blended. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until light and fluffy.

In another bowl or using your stand mixer, cream together 1 cup unsalted butter (room temperature), ¾ cup granulated sugar, and ¾ cup brown sugar making sure they are well blended before adding 2 eggs, lightly beaten, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Continue beating until the mixture becomes light and fluffy.

Step 3: Gradually add in the dry ingredients mixture then fold in the chocolate chips.

With your mixer on low speed or using a spatula, gradually mix in the dry ingredients mixture from Step 1 into the wet ingredients mixture from Step 2 ensuring that they are well combined. Once fully mixed, stir in 2 cups chocolate chips or chunks into the dough.

*Step 4: Refrigerate dough for at least an hour or let sit at room temperature for up to four hours; bake cookies for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Cover your bowl with plastic wrap, then refrigerate your dough for at least an hour so that it is easier to shape later on. Alternatively, let sit at room temperature for up to four hours before shaping them into balls of about two tablespoons batter each then placing individually onto lined baking sheets with about two inches of space between them. Bake cookies for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown around edges but still soft on top. Remove from oven and let cool on sheets for about five minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Substitutions and Variations

The key to a delicious cookie is in the batter – and this one is no exception!

Let’s face it, sometimes we don’t have all the ingredients we need to make our favorite cookie recipe. Fear not, as there are plenty of substitutions you can make without sacrificing the taste and texture of your cookies.

For starters, if you’re out of unsalted butter, you can use salted butter instead – just be sure to reduce the amount of salt called for in the recipe by half a teaspoon. If you don’t have any vanilla extract on hand, try using almond or maple extract instead for added flavor.

For those who are looking for a healthier option or can’t consume eggs, you can swap out the egg with a flax egg or applesauce – this will make your cookies vegan and dairy-free. You’ll need about 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal mixed with 2-3 tablespoons of water to replace one egg.

If you prefer something different from chocolate chips, try swapping them with chopped nuts such as pecans or walnuts, dried fruits such as cranberries or raisins, or even M&Ms or peanut butter chips. You can also add a sprinkle of coarse sea salt on top to give your cookies that extra oomph.

Additionally, for a thicker and denser cookie, add an extra half cup of flour to the batter. For a thin and crispy cookie, reduce the amount of brown sugar in the recipe and increase the granulated sugar. You can also consider adding oats into your mix for a chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.

Remember that there are endless possibilities when it comes to variations on this recipe – don’t be afraid to get creative and mix things up! By following these substitution tips and experimenting with other ingredients in your pantry, you’ll be able to bake up some deliciously unique cookies that will leave everyone wanting more.

After baking the Chew Crew Cookie Batter, you’ll be tempted to indulge in their rich chocolaty aroma, warm right out of the oven. However, for optimal taste, let them cool down a bit and serve them in a platter or a cookie jar. When it comes to pairing, cookies and milk always make an excellent combo – it’s no secret that they complement each other like peas in a pod. A cold glass of milk alongside these chewy chocolate chip cookies soothes the taste buds and makes for an excellent treat any time of day.

If you prefer something stronger or more adult-friendly, why not pair your cookies with some tea or coffee? The bitterness of black coffee blends well with the sweetness of these chewy sugar cookies. Alternatively, you can try playing around with different tea flavors such as Earl Grey or Chai that provide a unique twist to the taste of the cookies.

Another fun way to serve these cookies is topped with ice cream. The cookie’s soft texture contrasts perfectly with the cold hard ice cream, making an irresistible combination. Chocolate chip cookie pieces can also be used as toppings for cookie cake recipes, peanut butter cookies or cowboy cookies; mix n match as needed.

In conclusion, these Chew Crew chocolate chip cookies can be served on multiple occasions and paired with various drinks for your palate’s delight. From milk to coffee, tea to ice cream or simply enjoyed alone while binge-watching your favorite series – There is no wrong way to eat the perfect cookie!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

Once you’ve made a batch of these irresistible Chew Crew Cookie Batter cookies, the question of how to keep them fresh arises. Fear not! These chewy cookies store well and remain delicious for up to five days when properly stored.

If you plan on making the dough ahead of time, you can leave it in the fridge for up to four days before use. Make sure to cover the bowl with a lid or wrap it tightly with plastic wrap so that it doesn’t dry out. When you’re ready to bake the cookies, remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before rolling them into balls and baking them.

Storing freshly baked Chew Crew Cookie Batter cookies is a breeze. Let them cool completely before placing them in an airtight container at room temperature. If you’re storing different types of cookies together, make sure to separate them with parchment paper, so they don’t stick together.

You can also freeze the dough or baked cookies for later use. To freeze unbaked cookie dough: roll them into balls and place them on a lined baking sheet. Make sure they aren’t touching each other, then freeze for about 30 minutes, until they’re firm. Afterward, transfer them into a freezer-safe container or plastic bag, then mark the date and type of cookie on the container/bag. The frozen dough balls will last up to six months in the freezer.

To freeze baked cookies: allow them to cool thoroughly before wrapping each cookie separately with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Label the package with the date and type of cookie and freeze for up to three months.

Reheating Chew Crew Cookie Batter cookies is easy: preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), place cookies on an unlined baking sheet, then heat for 5-10 minutes or until warm. You can also microwave your cooled cookies in intervals of 10 seconds until desired warmth, though this method sometimes results in softening only certain pieces of the cookie rather than heating everything evenly.

Don’t worry about losing freshness or chewiness when reheating these delightful treats – just be careful not to overcook them!

Tips for Perfect Results

 Every cookie has a story to tell - and this recipe is waiting for you to make it your own.
Every cookie has a story to tell – and this recipe is waiting for you to make it your own.

If you want to achieve perfect results, here are some tips that will help you make the The Chew Crew Cookie Batter Recipe even better than it already is:

First, make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature. This includes the eggs, butter, and any other dairy products. Cold ingredients won’t mix well together, and could result in flat, dense cookies.

Another tip is to measure your ingredients correctly. Use dry measuring cups for dry ingredients like flour and sugar, and a liquid measuring cup for wet ingredients like oil or milk. Level off each measurement with a flat knife or spatula to avoid using too much of anything.

It’s also important not to overmix the dough. Overmixing can cause gluten formation and tough cookies. Mix until everything is just combined and then stop, even if you still see some flecks of flour left in the dough.

If you’re making large or extra thick cookies, be sure to flatten them slightly before baking. Otherwise, they may not bake evenly and could remain raw in the center.

Don’t forget to preheat your oven! This ensures that your cookies cook uniformly while they bake. Avoid opening the oven too often because it will fluctuate temperature which then affects the final product.

Lastly, use only quality ingredients as they do make a difference! There’s no substitute for good vanilla extract or high-quality chocolate chips; these add textures and depths of flavor that raise ordinary cookies into remarkable ones.

By following these tips, you can guarantee a satisfying end result every time you make The Chew Crew Cookies Batter Recipe.
