My husband won’t stop talking about these Chocolate Chip Cookies! He recently told me they were his favorite cookies that I make, which surprised me. After all, they were kinda a accident….!
I was craving cookies so I decided I was going to make my favorite chocolate chip cookies. I got out all the bowls and supplies, except the flour. That’s because I quickly realized we were all out of all purpose flour! What’s a girl to do when she wants chocolate chip cookies? She improvises! So I decided I was going to make cookies with bread flour. The results are delicious!
These Chocolate Chip Cookies Made with Bread Flour are so chewy and delicious! My pantry will always be stocked with bread flour for cookies now! Who knew bread flour could transform a cookie to be so good!
Bread Flour Recipe for Cookies
Can you use bread flour for cookies? Yes, you sure can!
Thescience of why these cookies are so chewy is because bread flour produces more gluten, causing a more chewy cookie. The results is crispy, chewy cookies, which are dare I say: perfect!
Bread Flour Vs All Purpose Flour
The big difference between bread flour and all purpose flour is protein. Bread flour has a higher protein content because bread (think stretchy chewy bread) needs to produce more gluten. That’s how you get stretchy, chewy bread – and that’s how you get chewy cookies!
How to Make Chewy Cookies
Instead of all-purpose flour, use bread flour. Bread Flour helps make chewy cookies (as well as chewy pizza dough!).
Time to bake the best chocolate chip cookies!
This recipe calls for 1 3/4 cup bread flour. Combine it with baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
In another bowl add softened butter, brown sugar and sugar together. I like to use a hand mixer to cream all the ingredients together. Once mixed, add egg and vanilla and continue mixing.
Now, add your wet ingredients to the dry ingredients (the flour bowl) and mix until your cookie dough is crumbly.
Add in your semi-sweet chocolate chips and stir with a spoon, making sure you mix well so the chocolate chips even out. You want to make sure every cookie is packed with chocolate chips!
Cover the dough bowl with plastic (or bee’s wrap– my new favorite kitchen tool!) and place in the refrigerator. We’re going to let the dough chill for 30 minutes, allowing the dough to toughen up so we can form it into balls.
Now roll the dough into smallish balls and place on a nonstick cookie sheet or silicone baking mats.
I love the mix of sweet and salty so I add a little dash of sea salt on each cookie. This is optional, but highly recommended!
Then using a spatula, gently press down on each cookie forming it into a cookie like shape.
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown and out comes the most delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies!
Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies
My little one couldn’t keep her eyes (or hands) off them! I recommend eating at least one cookie warm, because warm chocolate chip cookies are the best in my opinion! My husband is a weirdo and doesn’t like warm cookies, can you believe it?
This recipe makes 2 dozen cookies, but good luck not having them all eaten in a day! Not only are these great for dessert or snacking, but if you love to bake for holiday gifts – these are the cookies you want to bake!
Serve cookies with tea (or milk!) and have a great afternoon snack! I hope you enjoy these Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Bread Flour!
