Soft and Chewy Chocoalte Chip Cookies (Martha Stewart)

Ack! School just started and I'm already drowning ;( Tomorrow I have a chem test, an Alg test, oh and a Japanese kanji test. Woo hoo *sarcastically* But no fear, I'm still baking! Like these cookies, for example. Plus, they're the perfect study food!

But....I do think too much stress isn't good for the body. And it especially effects your mind! You see, I forgot baking powder and baking soda in these babies. Oops. My bad. I wasn't thinking.

They look a little flat, don't they? But they were still actually quite good. And I'm not just saying that because I'm super hungry as I write this post. I should go eat one of these cookies. I think I will...And, with a nice big cold glass of organic 1% milk from costco :)

I do love cookies. Yes, I do. And do you know who loves these cookies more than me? Um...every super soft cookie lover! But no really, they're actually quite good even if you're not a fan of the softies.

Martha Stewart Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
Yield: 3 dozen

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter, room temp
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt

6. Place rounded tablespoons on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
7. Bake until cookies are golden in the center, about 8-10 minutes

p.s. Don't forget it's National Rice Month! How about cooking up a Wild Rice Chicken Stir Fry?  Plus, don't forget to vote! Maybe for the chicken stir fry?!?


  1. This is perfect! I've been looking for a good soft, chocolate chip cookie recipe, and this looks just like the recipe I need. I love how perfectly round your cookies are!

  2. I followed the recipe but the cookies came out very mushy and fell apart easily.

    I didn't add vanilla extract and my butter was salted, could this have been the problem?

  3. Patissierement votre: thanks for stopping by!

    Adriana: Haha, I guess they are round, aren't they!

    Sue: Hm, that is a problem. I've never used salted butter, so I don't really know...maybe it had something to do with the flour? Sorry I'm not much help... :(

  4. Well, the brain requires glucose to function! ;)
    Nice looking cookies!

  5. These look so delicious! How do you get them to have that perfect shape? All of the cookies I make come out way too flat or too puffy.

  6. Emma: Yup, and my brain needs a lot of glucose!

    La petite frog: Hm, I actually used a scale to make sure they were all the same weight. :)

  7. Wow, what delicious-looking cookies. I love sweets and these cookies look mouth-watering! I usually stick to these Brownie Cookies. They're pretty tasty too!

  8. My cookies turned out really flat and crumbly too. I chilled the batter, which is apparently a secret to chewy cookies, but they still flattened out on the edges a lot.
    They taste good, but I was hoping for a dense cookie.

  9. Amazingly easy and really looks delicious. I'm definitely craving for a plate of that right now. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. This is definitely a must do recipe this weekend since I got my Food Handler Certification. Happy Valentines Day!!!
