Hi! I am Olivia Coots and I am here to teach you step by step how to make chocolate chip cookies.
STEP 1. GET YOUR SUPPLIES First you'll need these ingredients: 7 tablespoons of butter (cubed), 1 large egg, 2/3 cup of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 and 1/4 a cup of self-rising flour, and a half a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Also you will need these supplies: a large mixing bowl, an electric mixer or a whisk, a wooden spoon, a sieve, 2 baking sheets, parchment paper, and a wire baking rack.
STEP 2. PREHEAT YOUR OVEN You'll have to have an adult help you with this step so right now stop reading and run and get your adult. Got one? Great! Now ask your adult to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
STEP 3 MIX THE INGREDIENTS Now put the butter into the mixing bowl and beat them together using an electric mixer or a hand whisk. Beat them until they are light and fluffy. Then stir in the sugar and vanilla using the wooden spoon. then add the flour gently sifting in a little at a time. Work the flour into the mixture by stirring it with the wooden spoon. Do this until you have a soft dough. Now add the half bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Stir until evenly mixed. Now cover the bowl up and stick it in the fridge and let it chill for 30 minutes.
STEP 4 BAKE YOUR COOKIES Now line the cookie sheets with parchment paper. Then use your hands to shape the cookie dough into balls. Spread them out evenly on the parchment paper. Flatten the balls gently with your hand and put them into the oven (you will need an adult to help you with the oven too so get one to be sure). Bake the cookies in the oven for 15 minutes and then put them on the wire cooling rack to cool off. TIP the cookies will spread out as they bake so make sure to leave plenty of space between the balls.
Well now we are all done. You have successfully made chocolate chip cookies! Now all that is left to do is eat the cookies! Now thank your adult for the help and break out the milk glasses!
