Cook the Book Fridays: Chewy chocolate chip cookies from Everyday Dorie

Dorie Greenspan Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies from Everyday Dorie just baked on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s recipe for Cook the Book Fridays comes from Dorie Greenspan’s latest cookbook, Everyday Dorie and it’s COOKIES. Chocolate Chip Cookies. Specifically, CHEWY chocolate chip cookies (my favourite kind!).

Dorie says:

I can’t imagine a time when I won’t be creating new chocolate chip cookies. This latest addition to my collection is chewy and a bit crunchy on the edges. That it’s got oatmeal is almost a secret—there’s not much, it’s not really visible and until the cookie’s a day old, its taste is in the background—but it’s part of what makes the chewiness so winning.

These were super easy to make – the dough comes together in a few minutes and you don’t even need beaters or a hand mixer to do any of the work! I scooped the cookies out using the 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop per Dorie’s instructions and instead of just chilling them, I froze them straight away (consulted with Dorie who said they can absolutely be baked from frozen).

Dorie Greenspan Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies from Everyday Dorie ready for the freezer on can place them very close together on the trays when you freeze them straight away, then as soon as they are frozen solid you can pop them in Ziploc bags in the freezer and bake as needed)

I baked these from frozen per Dorie and they took just a minute longer than the listed baking time. I also banged the trays halfway through baking to flatten them (they had a weird bump in the middle that I wasn’t sure would flatten).

These were SOOOOO good I had to hide them from myself 😉 I only baked a few to start with but am very content in the knowledge that there are a bunch more of these cookies ready to bake in my freezer 🙂

  1. I think it was brilliant to put them in the freezer. In fact, I need to make another batch and do just that. I knew I was sharing mine, so baked them all. But I really love cookies when they are fresh, so it makes so much sense. Yours look great!!

  2. I am definitely doing the freezer idea next time I whip up a batch, not that these were tough to put together, but I love the idea of just baking some off for a special dessert one evening. Very much appreciate the details you shared (and inside scoop from Dorie !) about freezing them. I also LOVE how flat yours turned out- they look exactly as I like my choc chips to look !!
