Chocolate chip cookies recipe, easy and quick

cookies cioccolato americani

Chocolate chip cookies, how many times have you heard of this recipe? In fact, it is an original American recipe that is handed down from generation to generation. It is so quick and easy to make, that it’s become a culinary symbol of the United States.

The recipe is simple and fast and even if you can buy shop bought mixes to make these cookies by only adding oil and eggs, I recommend you make them from scratch, both for your pockets and especially for your health.

The aim is to prepare crunchy biscuits and this is the reason why pure sodium bicarbonate is used.

The dough of these chocolate cookies can be eaten raw, served alone as a dessert or with ice cream, caramel, melted chocolate and so on. The recipe for the so-called cookie dough is under the recipe of the classic chocolate cookies, so you can choose which one to prepare.

For this reason, the dough can be prepared well in advance, wrapped in foil and placed in the refrigerator and then cooked at a later time. The dough can be kept in the fridge for 2 days.

The only drawback of these cookies is that they only last a maximum of 3 days if placed inside an airtight container otherwise they become too soft and lose flavor.

You can use a stand mixer for the dough such as KitchenAid or just your hands, by mixing all the ingredients with a spatula.
