SOFT CHOCOLATE CHIP SUGAR COOKIES RECIPE

Happiness is a plate of these soft chocolate chip sugar cookies right out of the oven! Loaded with mini chocolate chips and dotted with more chocolate chips on top these cookies are a favorite treat! The dough comes together in a matter of minutes, and no chilling is required.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup International Delight frosted sugar cookie coffee creamer
  • 5 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips – to arrange on top of the cookies – optional

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 350F.
  2. Line 2-3 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl add the butter and sugar. With the paddle attachment on, beat on low speed until creamed and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add in the eggs, one at a time and the vanilla extract.
  5. Slowly pour in the coffee creamer alternately with the flour, baking powder and salt.
  6. With a spatula, fold in the chocolate chips.
  7. Using a large scoop, drop cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets.
  8. Top each cookie with a couple of chocolate chips.
  9. Bake, one baking sheet at a time, for 17 minutes.
  10. ** While the first batch of cookies is in the oven, I place the unbaked ones in the fridge for 10 minutes. This will prevent the dough to spread too much while baking or baking as a blob of dough if chilled longer.
  11. Keep the cookies soft for a longer time in an airtight container.
