Mama Young's Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe ● by Jess

One of our favourite things about visiting Jon's family in Utah is his mama's baking. There are four things in particular that Jon craves: her pizza, her roast beef Sunday dinner, her chocolate cake, and most especially her chocolate chip cookies.

I smuggled a giant bag of chocolate chips back to London with me with the intention of baking my man a little bit of home.

Unfortunately, I tried halving the recipe. I realised, after it was all mixed together, that it was too runny... I added a bit more flour... and then a bit more. Suddenly it dawned on me that I hadn't halved the butter. Dang it.

I think I saved them in the end... sort of... but there were nowhere near as good as the ones Jonny's mama makes. Too much darn flour. Gonna have to keep trying!

For all those that want to give it a go... here is the magic recipe:

Mama Young's AMAZING Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1/2 c (100g) sugar
  • 1 c (200g) brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ lb (250g) butter, softened
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 c (288g) AP flour
  • 1 bag + 1  c chocolate chips
  • 1 c walnuts (optional)

1. Cream the butter, sugars, eggs together then add the vanilla, salt and baking soda & powder. 
2. Scrape the sides and add the flour. 
3. Mix till incorporated and add the walnuts and chocolate chips just till mixed.
4. Scoop and bake at 345 degrees. 

Hot tips: 
*ALWAYS underbake them...just bake til the edges begin to Brown.

*After removing them from the oven, whack the tray against the counter to knock the air out of the warm cookies.

This makes the chewiest, yummiest cookies you've ever eaten. Enjoy!
