Chocolate Chip Cookies

During the Chinese New Year days, my daughter and I wanted to bake something. We realised that we didn’t know any recipes of Chinese treats. So I asked my daughter what her favorite treats are and she replied without hesitation: “Chocolate chip Cookies“. Since we had all the ingredients we got started baking them adding a bit of color with a leftover bunch of M&M’s.

Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 240g (1 cup) unsalted butter
  • 250g (1 1/4 cup) brown sugar 
  • 80g (1/3 cup) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg + 2 egg yolks room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 320g (2 cups) all purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 180g (1 cup) chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 180°F.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together all purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • To a pan over medium heat, add the butter. Cook for 5-6 minutes until it starts to bubble and it gets brown. Transfer it to a bowl and allow it to cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the brown sugar and white sugar. Pour in the melted butter and mix until combined. Then add the egg, egg yolks and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth and thick.
  • Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix using a rubber spatula until a cookie dough forms.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips and let the dough rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. 
  • Scoop out portions of the dough about the size of 1/4 to 1/3 measuring cup. Make sure to space them apart.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the center is still a bit soft. The cookies will continue baking out of the oven on the hot pan. 
  • Leave the cookies on the pan for about 10 minutes or until firm before serving them.
