Know about Your Ingredients and Recipe
Unsalted Butter: Unsalted butter is always best for baking. It gives you to have full control over the recipe. Here, in this recipe, I’m using 1 cup of unsalted butter from Wegmans organic. I’m using ½ tbsp. of salt later. If you are using salted butter don’t add the salt afterward. The reason why I love unsalted butter the most is, that it has a smooth and sweet buttery flavor.
All-purpose Flour: For the base of the cookie dough 2 cups of all-purpose flour would be enough.
Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips: This is another base ingredient. Try to use Wegmans organic semi sweet chocolate chips cause they taste better. Measure 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips.
Brown Sugar: Usage of brown sugar in cookies is universal. It has a dense texture that compacts easily while creaming. One of the best part of it, you would notice while beating, it creates fewer bubbles. It makes the cookies chewy inside and tastes somehow better. Measure 1 cup of brown sugar.
Granulated Sugar: Use ½ cup of granulated sugar. The mixture of granulated sugar and brown sugar makes the cookie semi chewy.
Egg: For Wegmans cookies, I will use 1 egg and 1 egg yolk. Separate the egg yolk from the egg.
Vanilla Extract: 1 tbsp of vanilla extract enriches the flavor of these organic cookies.
Instant Espresso Powder: It is a very special ingredient to use in cookies. Instant espresso powder has a rich velvety coffee flavor that enriches the cookies. You can’t find using instant coffee in other recipes. I will use only 1 tsp of this ingredient and you will see the difference of taste after preparing it.
Baking Soda: Baking soda has the leavening component that helps cookies to rise while baking. 1 tsp of baking soda would be enough for the recipe.
Cornstarch: Cornstarch creates a crumbly texture and helps to make the cookies chewy in the middle. The perfect amount would make the cookies perfectly thick and crispy in the edges. I use 2 tbsp of it.
Kosher Salt: ½ tsp of Kosher salt would enhance the sweet balance of the cookies.
Dark Chocolate Chips: I’m not sure whether the organic chocolate chip cookie recipe, uses dark chocolate chips or not. I prefer to use ½ cup of dark chocolate chips here. It tastes better while balancing with the semi-sweet chocolate chips.
