Milka chocolate chip cookies

I'm feeling pretty confident with my chocolate chip cookies recipe after yielding soft and chewy ones  the last time I baked it . After scoring some packs of  Milka chocolate chip from the grocery, I know it's about time to try my luck, one more time.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that this is another success story, otherwise, it won't be making an appearance on this blog. Combining my favourite cookie and one of my favourite chocolates is such an indulgence.

Thick, soft, delicious and so photogenic ! Here,  have a bite!


3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
4 tbsp cornstarch
1 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
100 g unsalted butter
35 g Crisco  all vegetable shortening
250 g brown sugar
200 g white granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
400 g Milka chocolate chips

Baking instructions:

 1. Combine and shift together flour, cornstarch , basking soda , baking powder and salt. Set aside.

2. Using an electric mixer, cream together  butter, shortening, brown and white sugar  until pale and light. Beat in eggs and vanilla until well combined.

 3.With dough hook attached, incorporate flour mixture into the bowl. Stir in chocolate chips. Transfer dough in a clean bowl, cover with cling foil and refrigerate for 24 hours. Apparently, refrigerating dough with render softer and chewier cookies.

4. After refrigeration, scoop golf sized dough into a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Baked in a preheated oven 180 ° C for 8 minutes. Then turn the baking pan around and bake for  4 more minutes. Take the baking pan out of the oven but don't remove cookies yet. Let it in the baking pan for 5 minutes before transferring to the wire rack for cooling.

Having difficulty sleeping? Have a cookie or two or maybe three with a glass of milk. I promise, your sleep will be  deeper and your dreams sweeter.
