These are hands down my favorite cookie recipe ever!
There are certain places I wouldn’t be allowed in, if I didn’t bring these cookies – yes, they’re that good!
Chocolate chip cookies – a controversial topic!
There are so many opinions about what makes a perfect chocolate chip cookie! Some people like them crisp, some like them soft and fudgey, other’s prefer them to be chewy!
This cookie recipe has been a long time coming, and making maybe a hundred batches of these over time, I’ve finally perfected the combination to my liking!
I will put it out there – these are no crispy cookies.
Theses are gooey, and fudgey cookies with a bit of a crisp – so they please a lot of people!
Yes, there will always be haters. But if you’re going to complain about chocolate chip cookies – well, I don’t need that kind of negativity in my life!
It’s all in the technique
Baking is really an art and a science.
You can give two people the same ingredients and they might come out with two different products, just because of technique.
For these confetti chocolate chip cookies, there isn’t a lot of air added to during the mixing process. I let the sugars and the melted butter hang out together in a bowl, and only start mixing once the egg and vanilla are added.
This ensures that there isn’t a lot of opportunity for too much air being introduced in the cookie. Usually when there is too much air in the cookies, they tend to puff up, and become more cakey in texture.
A little about the ingredients
For these cookies, I use equal amounts of brown and white sugar. Typically in a cookie recipe, you can play around with this number to mkae them crispier, by increasing the amount of white sugar, or more moist by increasing the proportion of brown sugar.
The addition of an egg yolk, and using melted butter (instead of softened butter), also helps keep them chewy!
Of course, the sprinkles are the best part of these confetti chocolate chip cookies!
I love the addition of sprinkles into these cookies! They add color, and might even be the happiest cookies on earth!
There are also so many ways to make them your own – add into different colored sprinkles to match a theme, or your own combination of chocolate chips!
I usually stick to a combination of white and milk chocolate chips, but you use even dark chocolate chips if you don’t like your cookies too sweet!
Give them a shot! I guarantee you won’t regret it!
