In Search Of: the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie Part 55: Chocolate Chip Amish Puff Cookies

I got this recipe from another food blog.

  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (didn’t use because we use salted butter)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (we used only 2/3 cup)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

1. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt (if using).

2. Cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add egg.

3. Add the flour mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 30 min.

4. Remove from fridge. Preheat oven to 350F.

5. Add in chocolate chips.

6. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon.

7. Roll dough into balls then coat with the cinnamon sugar. Place on baking sheets and bake 8 to 10 min.

Verdict: These were okay, but not the best. There was a taste missing to them, which I think might have been the lack of vanilla, though that could be just in my head. I like the cinnamon sugar coating, but felt that was what gave the cookies the most of their taste. Plus we used nowhere close to the amount called for.
