Chocolate chip cookies are not only a delicious twist on the classic cut out sugar cookie, but they can also be beautifully decorated or filled. I’m going to tell you all about them today.
Cut out sugar cookies with chocolate chips
Making chocolate chip cookies is very easy. I combined the basic recipe for vanilla sugar cookies with chocolate chips. It’s that easy! To be honest, several batches went into the oven until I got the right ratio. Of course, you want to taste just the right amount of chocolate in your cookies.
So what do these chocolate chip sugar cookies taste like? Kind of like very crunchy chocolate chip cookies, actually. Delicious! Of course, an official chocolate chip cookie is supposed to be soft and a little crunchy around the edges. If this is what you are after, then you should definitely start with my chocolate chip cookie recipe, and save these chocolate chip sugar cookies for later.
Chocolate chips or finely chopped chocolate?
You can choose to mix mini chocolate chips into your cookie dough, but I found it worked just as well to use a bar of chocolate and chop it finely. The pieces of chocolate in your cookies will be different sizes, but I didn’t find that to be a problem.
