After finally deep cleaning the kitchen and finding the bottom of our sink, I looked around and just couldn't resist the urge to bake! My husband knows this pattern all too well haha. I just see no point in a kitchen staying clean for too long :) Now on to the cookies..!
These cookies are to die for! Forget that recipe on the back of your chocolate chip bag. These are the softest, chewiest most delicious chocolate chip cookies you'll ever make! This one extra all natural ingredient makes all the difference and so no it's not yucky pudding powder - it's honey!
Once these super simple cookies were done I tossed them into my pretty new Greek festival find, a gorgeous purple hand painted bowl. I was just about to grab my bowl of deliciousness and head back to my laptop to continue working on client photos when I popped one in my mouth. "Oh. My. Glob. I have to blog these!" So I grabbed my camera and ran outside to snap a few shots on my porch before the sun completely set.
So here's the recipe guys! Enjoy! xo
Soft & Chewy Simple Chocolate Chips Cookies
½ cup Butter, melted (do not use spreadable butter)
¾ cup Light Brown Sugar
¼ cup Granulated White Sugar
2 tablespoons Honey
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1¾ cups Flour (add more as needed - only up to ¼ cup extra)
¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
⅓ teaspoon Salt
¾ cup Chocolate Chips, divided
Preheat the oven to 350°F
Microwave the butter for about 30 seconds to just barely melt it (half soft and half melted).
Combine the butter with the brown and white sugars, and beat until creamy and paler in color. Add the syrup, vanilla and the egg, and lightly beat until just mixed through.
Add the flour, baking soda, and salt, mixing until combined. If needed, add in one tablespoon of the 'extra' flour at a time until the dough is still soft but easy to handle; and firm enough to form one large ball Add in half of the chocolate chips.
Roll the dough and arrange them on a greased baking sheet. Press the remaining chocolate chips onto the tops of each cookie; bake for about 10-11 minutes. The cookies will look pale and puffed up, but should be golden around the edges.
*DO NOT OVER BAKE or your cookies will become hard once they have cooled.
Allow to cool and let set on the baking sheet for about 30 minutes
