Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies



A few Saturdays back, we watched Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible 5:  Rogue Nation.  I so love Tom Cruise as an action star.  The movie will keep you on your feet and will keep you guessing what's going to come next with every scene. It's definitely action-packed, very techy, with a good sense of humor.  Should the franchise kick-out tome cruise as Ethan Hunt, I vow not to watch any Mission Impossible Franchise again.

Anyways, I have decided to make a few changes in my blog posting.  The Husband and I noticed that we only have a few posted recipes on desserts specially baked goodies.  So I have decided to start every week with a post on any dessert recipes and afternoon tea/coffee recipes, baked or no baked, frozen or hot, chocolates or egg-based, flour or cereal based, anything and everything sweet.  I am obliging myself to make desserts and any sweet delights, pushing myself to further improve my skills if there are any hidden inside me.   Because of that, you can expect me to be posting ice-cream, chocolates, cakes, cupcakes, brownies, bars, cookies, etc. 

To start with, here is my chocolate chip cookie recipe.  

I've been into cookies this time.  Though I am still on my quest to perfect my steamed rice cake or puto in Filipino, alternately I'm experimenting on my cookies.  I'm trying to come up with a chocolate chip cookie that my husband and I would love together. This particular recipe produced a soft cookie. The husband liked the flavor specially the right sweetness to it as it is not cloying sweet nor overwhelmingly buttery.  I think the brand of the butter has something to do with the right butter flavor.  There are butter that usually gives an overwhelmingly buttery taste and the best way to prevent this is to reduce the amount of butter to be used and add a bit of either shortening or oil. Or use another brand of butter,  in this case, I used the brand Lurpack.  The flavor is just right to our liking.

I made these cookies particularly as a thank you present to Ate Rachel for lending us her IELTS book reviewer.  I hope they liked it specially their little boy, Patrick.  

The husband definitely like this chocolate chip cookies because even before my cookies were completely cooled down, he already finished  2 pieces and when he found out that I gave everything away, he complained like a child.  I need to be baking more cookies in the coming days :-)
