One thing that always appeals to me at Subway (the sandwich/roll chain) is their cookies. They are chewy and soft in the center and such a comfort food, isn’t it? Surely it is not something you would indulge on daily basis if health and budget are of your concerns 🙂 Anyway, if you like the kind of chewy and soft textured cookies then continue read on – and maybe give it a try and let me know if you also love it as much as we do.
In the case you want to try make it at home, then at least it is much budget friendly than store bought, but try not to eat too many in a day, ok? I did a research and tried out few recipes, so far we like this one. I am not even sure where I got this recipe, I wrote this down on my recipe book years ago and forgot about it. Only recently I flipped the pages of my recipe book, noticed the recipe and decided to make it again. So, I am truly sorry to the owner of this recipe for not citing you – but thank you for sharing it!
- 250 grams self-rising flour, sifted
- 170 grams melted butter
- 185 grams brown sugar
- 110 grams white sugar (I used 80 grams, as milk choc chips are already quite sweet)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 whole egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 cups of dark choc chips (I used milk choc chips as that was what I have at home at the time of baking)
Cream together melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.
Beat in egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract until the batter is light and creamy.
Mix in sifted flour until just blended.
Lastly, stir in the choc chips.
Drop big tablespoons of the dough on lined baking trays.
Bake on 165C for 15-17 minutes.
– Use good quality of choc chips to get better taste cookies. Or could substitute the choc chips with M&Ms or Smarties, to your liking.
– Do not overbake the cookies to get that soft centered texture. I took out mine at 15 minutes and they were soft to touch. Once cooled to room temperature, they will harden up and the center will be chewy and soft.
– The brown sugar is mostly what creates that chewy soft texture, hence you cannot substitute this with white sugar. For the same reason, if you need to cut down on sweetness level, just reduce the white sugar amount only.
