In Search Of: the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Part 24: Lower Fat Chocolate Chip Cookie

I found this recipe on another food blog. I didn’t calculate calories or anything myself, so I don’t know if the title of these cookies are actually true.

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup, honey or maple syrup (we used honey)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla or maple extract (we used vanilla)
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (omitted because we use salted butter)
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 325F.

2. In a large bowl, mix together butter and brown sugar. Add egg, honey and vanilla.

3. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt (if using). Add to wet ingredients (compared to other chocolate chip cookie recipes, this one was rather dry. For a bit it seemed like I would need to add another egg to fully mix in all the flour, but in the end one egg was enough). Add in chocolate chips.

4. Drop spoonfuls onto baking sheet and bake 10 to 12 min.

We made 2 dozen small and 9 kind of big cookies, so we maybe could have made 3 dozen small cookies if we kept the size consistent all the way through.

Verdict: This wasn’t a bad recipe. It just didn’t have the depth of flavour that other recipes have had. They were moist and thin, but just not the best we have had lately.
