If you’re like me and you love cookies, then you’ll be happy to know that making them is easier than you might think. Here, I’m going to take you through all the steps you need to follow to make delicious cookies that are sure to please even the pickiest of cookie-lovers. So grab your ingredients and let’s get baking!
Ingredients You’ll Need
Making cookies doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, but you will need the following:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup softened butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 cup of chocolate chips (optional)
Prepping the Dough
Once you have all the ingredients, the first thing you need to do is preheat your oven to 375°F. While that’s happening, you can start prepping the dough. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Once that’s done, add the butter and mix until it’s all blended together. After that, add the eggs and the vanilla extract and mix until everything is combined.
If you’re adding chocolate chips, now is the time to do it. Make sure to mix them in evenly so that there are no clumps.
Shaping and Baking the Cookies
Once the dough is ready, you can start shaping the cookies. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, portion out the dough into 2-inch circles. You can use a spoon to flatten the cookies out a bit. Make sure to leave some space between each cookie, as they will spread a bit when they bake.
Pop the baking sheet into the oven and let the cookies bake for 10 minutes. When they’re done, take them out and let them cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
Enjoying Your Delicious Cookies
And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for – it’s time to enjoy your delicious cookies! Whether you’re enjoying them with a cup of tea or coffee, or just eating them as is, I’m sure you’ll love them.
You can also get creative with your cookies. Add a bit of frosting or melted chocolate on top, or try adding some sprinkles or other decorations. The possibilities are endless!
