Chewy cookies has always been my favorite cookie which is chewy and soft at the center with a slight crispy edge.
However my cookies are not as chewy compared with Subway’s cookies as they are thicker & taller in height. But, they still taste great, not too sweet and has a soft cookie texture.
If im making these cookies again for my consumption, I will reduce the butter to 70g.
Recipe: Makes 32X 6.5cm wide cookies
2 eggs (Room Temperature)
100g brown sugar
50g white sugar
100g of room temperature butter (Advise to lower the butter to 70g; but i have not tried 70g butter before)
1tsp vanillia extract
200g self raising flour
40g chocolate chips/ any nuts or M&M (optional)
Combine butter with brown and white sugar whisk with a electronic mixer untill light and creamy
Add in one egg at a time and mix till well combine before adding the second egg
Add in the vanilla extract and mix till well combine
Add the self raising flour in batches of three sieved and gentle whisk till well combine
Add in a M&M and mix till well combine
Chill the cookie dough in the fridge for an hour and preheat the oven to 170 degree celsius
Portion the cookie dough on parchment paper using two spoon (I use the stirring small spoon for tea)
Space the cookie dough 3-4cm apart as they will spread and puff up quite alot after they are baked.
Cut marshmallow in smaller pieces and press them on top of the cookie dough and add more chocolate chips or M&M
Bake them at 170 degree celsius at 12minutes.
Remember to never OVERBAKE, otherwise you will not get a soft and chewy cookie, these cookies hardens after cool down
HOW TO CHECK IF THE COOKIES ARE DONE IN THE OVEN
When press with your finger gently, they should have a crust (which means they should not stick to your finger, but when a little pressure is applied, they should sink in rather easily)
when cookies are done, quickly take them out of the hot oven and rest them on a cooling rack, if possible, pull out the parchment paper with the cookie and rest them on the cooling rack is advised as the baking tray is very hot and can continue to bake the cookie.
Keep in a air tight container storage, can store up to 2 weeks in fridge.
Taste awesome, buttery but not strong, sweet but not overly sweet as there is a mix of brown and white sugar with a tint of vanilla scent.
The marshmallow turns slightly toasty and brown from the baking, the crunchiness of the M&M and peanuts M&M adds a greater variety on texture of this cookie.
A absolute fool proof chewy cookie keeper recipe.
Brought them to my colleague and they love it! 🙂
