The BEST Chocolate-Chip Cookies EVER - Thermomix Recipe



When I say these are the BEST Chocolate-Chip Cookies EVER I truly mean it. These cookies are heavenly. And believe me when I say you can't just stop at one!


They are moist and chewy on the inside with just enough crunch on the outside for true cookie perfection.

Recipe

Ingredients:
130g Cake Flour
130g Bread Flour (aka Bakers Flour)
3/4tsp Bi-Carb Soda
3/4tsp Baking Powder
3/4tsp Salt
140g Butter
140g Brown Sugar
100g White Sugar
2 Eggs
2tsp Vanilla Extract
350g Chocolate Chips
- You can use whatever sort of chocolate you like. Today I used half milk choc-chips and half Olympic M&M's. 70% dark chocolate is preferable for a true choc-chip cookie taste, however I've used milk choc-chips, white choc-chips, M&M's, Reece's Pieces, Snickers, Mars Bars, etc. This is totally up to you and you can change it up depending on what you feel like or what you're after.

Combine the butter, sugars and vanilla into the bowl of your thermomix and mix 1 min/speed 3.5. Scrape down the sides of your bowl, add eggs and mix another 30 secs/speed 3.5

Add flours, bi-carb soda, baking powder and salt into bowl and mix using the knead function for 30secs.

Add in your chocolate and mix 20 secs/reverse/speed 1.5. Repeat until all the chocolate has been incorporated into the dough.


NOW... the most important part of this recipe, in order to make your cookies taste AMAZING is to leave the dough to rest at least 24hrs if not 36hrs. This helps everything to meld together perfectly and creates that mouthwatering soft chewy centre and crispy exterior cookie everyone loves.

My tip is to, using a spoon or a small icecream scoop, spoon the dough into balls and place them onto a baking tray lined with cling wrap, cover with more cling wrap and place them in the freezer. Once frozen you can place them all into a snap lock bag and you will have amazing cookie dough ready for whenever you want them.


When ready to bake preheat your oven to 180degrees C and bake on a lined tray for 10-12mins. Make sure you give them plenty of space to grow. You will want to keep an eye on them as it's best to get them out slightly under cooked  rather than letting them overcook and turn into very crunchy cookies (unless you like them that way that is!)

Also if you love that salty sweet taste (which I do) you can sprinkle a little salt onto the top of your dough before baking!

ENJOY...

If you are confused as to what a Thermomix is, I will leave a photo and a link down below to the machine on Amazon as I'm not sure where they are sold where you live. In Australia you find a consultant and buy through the Thermomix company. They retail in Australia for about $2000, when I bought mine they were running a 24 month interest free deal so I paid for mine at about $20 a week.
