Beginner Cookies or Easy Cookies

These chocolate chip cookies are really easy and can be done by a novice baker or a beginner who wants to make cookies. Let me tell you, I posted this recipe for the first time in 2018 as a part of the bake-a-thon series. These cookies were made by my son who just turned 9 at that time. So you know that these cookies are really easy to make. 

Chocolate Chip Cookies

He used to have this interest in baking and cooking since he was quite small. Ok, I am not going to bore you with his stories or my memories, but I love to see him help me. He wanted to make cookies for Santa all by himself and he enjoyed doing all the chores, from weighing to making the dough, to shaping and finally baking. The mom in me was a bit scared when he was handling the hot oven, but I had to hide my fear. I did 3 bakes on that day and he helped me in all. What an awesome day it was.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies as Edible Gifts

These cookies are so quick to make. So when you have a big batch of cookies to be done, I would highly recommend giving this a try. I always do this when I want to bake something quickly. Or when I have to make a large batch to give to family and friends as edible gifts.

These cookies are also the main cookies that travel to me India for my brother, and his family. My niece and nephew are just waiting for them. My brother has to hide and eat his share. Wow, so many memories.

Today’s Recipe for Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

So coming to today’s Double Chocolate Chip cookie recipe, this cookie is overloaded with chocolate flavor. The taste of cocoa powder and the crunch of dark and white chocolates, with rich butter, makes it a pure indulgence for chocolate lovers like me. 

They have the perfect outer crunch with a soft inside texture. Yes, that’s what a cookie should be, with the melt-in-mouth texture. Have it with a hot cuppa or treat your kids to these cookies with a glass of milk.

These overloaded chocolate chip cookies can be baked in just 8-10 minutes. Once the dough is assembled which too hardly takes 10 minutes max, we refrigerate the dough for a minimum of 30 minutes. The more the better. I would say if we can refrigerate it for 60 minutes or until they appear firm it is best.

One can even make the dough a day earlier, refrigerate it, and bake it the next day. This helps in spreading out your work if that helps. Just before baking let it sit out for 10-15 minutes, during the time your oven is preheating.

Double Chocolate Chip cookies in Air Fryer

Now I have made 3-4 batches of these cookies in an Air-Fryer, and they were perfectly done. The good thing is that it can be done in small batches and those who do not have an oven, but an air-fryer can make these cookies too.

Baking Times vary, you are a better judge of your oven.
I always refrigerate my cookie batter before baking.
If you want to skip you can, but the cookie might spread a bit.
