Bakery-style Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe was a real labour of love… trying to ensure the perfect balance of crunch and chew; the right amount of spread, but not too much; decent-sized chunks of delicious chocolate. When it comes to cookies, perfection takes time, but I am thrilled to announce that we are finally there – the ultimate Bakery-style Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Like most people, I am a big fan of those enormous cookies that are sold in supermarkets across the country. You know the ones I mean…? They’re usually sold in paper bags of five, they’re pretty huge and somehow both crunchy and chewy at the same time?

I’ve been wanting to create my own version of these bakery-style chocolate chip cookies for such a long time now, but if I tell you… it has taken me an age to perfect this recipe. It just always ‘wasn’t quite right’. But I’m a firm believer in if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well, and I can assure you that the many failed batches along the way certainly haven’t gone to waste.

But we are finally there. We have achieved cookie perfection (if I do say so myself) and I am delighted to finally be able to share my Bakery-style Chocolate Chip Cookies with you…

This recipe makes 18-24 large cookies.

Description

This recipe was a real labour of love… trying to ensure the perfect balance of crunch and chew; the right amount of spread, but not too much; decent-sized chunks of delicious chocolate. When it comes to cookies, perfection takes time, but I am thrilled to announce that we are finally there – the ultimate Bakery-style Chocolate Chip Cookies!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 380g plain flour
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 225g butter
  • 300g golden caster sugar
  • 50g soft dark brown sugar
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 340g dark chocolate

Instructions

Begin by creaming together the butter, golden caster sugar and soft dark brown sugar in the bowl of your stand mixer.

Next, add the vanilla extract and eggs, mixing until combined.

Finally, sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into the wet ingredients and mix until combined.

Set your cookie dough mix aside and use a sharp knife to slice up your chocolate into small chunks.

Add the chopped chocolate to the cookie dough and stir through until evenly distributed.

Line two large baking sheets with greaseproof paper.

Use a large ice cream scoop (or three level tablespoons) to portion out your cookie dough, adding six scoops to each baking sheet, allowing plenty of room for the cookies to spread.

Place the portions of cookie dough into the fridge to chill for around 20-30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas Mark 6.

Bake your cookies in the oven for around 12-15 minutes until they are just beginning to turn golden brown around the edges. Note that your cookies will still feel soft when removed from the oven, but they will continue to cook on the tray for a few minutes after you remove them and will crisp up as they cool.

After around ten minutes, transfer the cookies onto cooling racks to cool completely.

Notes

This delicious cookie dough is perfect to make in advance and keep in the freezer until a cookie craving strikes! Simply follow the recipe up to step eight and then, once the cookie dough portions are nice and chilled, transfer them into a freezer bag and place in the freezer for up to three months. When you are ready to use them, simply place the frozen cookie dough portions onto a greaseproof paper-lined baking sheet and bake for around 15 minutes at 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas Mark 6. Perfect bakery-style cookies whenever you want them!
