You’re not going to find a more comforting, classic, and loved dessert than chocolate chip cookies. Chocolate cookies can be made in so many ways, but nothing beats the traditional style. If you want to make chocolate chip cookies at home, you can make them in the oven. And I often get these questions. How long to bake chocolate chip cookies? What temperature do you bake chocolate chip cookies? Let’s cover them today and hear some tips on the recipe for homemade chocolate chip cookies baked in oven.
This question depends on the oven temp used. For best results, bake the chocolate chip cookies at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes in the oven. At the end of the baking session, you can expect a soft and chewy cookie that is golden brown and sweet in every bite. The edges should be a little crispier than the middle, but they shouldn’t be hard. You’ll know when they’re ready when the edges are a golden-orange color while the middle is light brown. You want to make sure you let the cookies sit for a little bit to give them a chance to cool off and finish baking. And the results you get are definitely worth it.
To get a crispy and crunchy chocolate chip cookies, go for a higher baking temperature such as 375 degrees Fahrenheit. If you decide to bake at a higher temperature of 375 degrees, you will get a faster baking time and cookies that are a bit crunchier. Higher oven temperatures cook the moisture out faster, which will result in a cookie that is a bit harder, but not burnt. Some people like crunchy cookies, so use this temperature if these are the results you’re looking for.
To get a softer chocolate chip cookies, go for a lower cooking temperature such as 325 degrees Fahrenheit. If you want to bake at a lower temperature of around 325 degrees, you will have to wait longer but your cookie will be soft. I like my chocolate chip cookies to have a little crispiness on the edges, but baking at 325 degrees can make the whole cookie soft. If you like gooey chocolate chip cookies that don’t have any crunchiness, 325 degrees will be a good temperature for you.
Chocolate chip cookies can do just fine being baked at different temperatures, so experiment a little to see what works best for you. But for me, the best oven temp for chocolate chip cookies is 350 degrees for a few reasons. To start, 350 degrees is the perfect temperature if you want soft cookies that are golden brown, chewy, and crispy on the edges. Baking at too high of a temperature will result in crunchier cookies, and too low can leave you with a cookie that’s so soft it’s hard to pick up. If you want the best of both worlds with a fast cooking time, use 350 degrees for your baking temperature.
Chocolate chip cookies are a classic staple in so many people’s lives. There is something special about being able to make this traditional dessert yourself. You can easily find many recipes for chocolate chips cookies online. But I have a special liking to this easy chocolate chip cookies recipe. Although some people prefer crunchy cookies, this recipe will cater to making ones that are soft and chewy. And here’s how to make chocolate chip cookies from scratch.
Go to the store and buy salt, butter, eggs, flour, sugar, baking soda, brown sugar, vanilla extract, chocolate chips, and parchment paper.
Start by mixing 1 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of brown sugar. Once everything is combined, add 2 large eggs to the mixture, one at a time, then pour in 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Finally, start to slowly add the dry ingredients, 2 1/4 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.Once you mix everything, start to add in the chocolate chips gradually so they knead into the dough well.
Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Start to form the dough into 1 or 1 1/2 inch balls and place them on the baking sheet. Make sure to leave some space between each cookie to give it some room to expand.
Set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place them in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Once they are baked, take them out and let them cool for a bit to let the cookies set. Enjoy!
Chocolate chip cookies bake pretty fast, but there are a few tips you can use to help you enjoy these addicting little treats even faster. Start by planning ahead. If you know you are going to make cookies on Friday, grab everything you need from the store on Monday to save yourself a trip. Trust me, the motivation to bake can go down if you find yourself having to leave for an hour or so to shop. Once you have everything, start mixing all of your ingredients together. If you prefer your cookies to be fresher, you might prefer to freeze the cookie dough instead. Frozen cookie dough can last three months in the freezer, and you can thaw it at room temperature easily for when you’re ready to bake. If you want to have cookies readily available, freeze them once cooked. These homemade chocolate chip cookies can last for up to a month in the freezer.
The great thing about chocolate chip cookies is that they can be changed to fit the preferences of everyone. If you like more chocolate chips, add them!
You can even switch it up and include white chocolate, caramel bites, or peanut butter cups if you want to. I personally like to add a bit of crunch to my cookie by including some walnuts in the mixture. I have even seen people make chocolate chip cookies using gummy bears and M&M’s as well. If that feels like a bit too much for you, no worries, there’s nothing wrong with keeping it simple.
Another way to make this dish better is to change up the cookie itself by making it double fudge or peanut butter flavored.
The choice is up to you and the possibilities are endless! Whatever type of chocolate chip cookie creation you make will be amazing, so have fun and get baking!
