Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yogurt is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of recipes, and chocolate chip cookies are no exception. By adding yogurt to the cookie dough, we not only enhance its flavor but also make it soft and chewy. The tanginess of the yogurt perfectly complements the sweetness of the chocolate chips, creating a heavenly combination.
To make these irresistible yogurt chocolate chip cookies, you will need the following ingredients:
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– ½ teaspoon baking soda
– ¼ teaspoon salt
– ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
– ½ cup granulated sugar
– ¼ cup brown sugar
– ½ cup plain yogurt
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 cup chocolate chips
Now that you have all the ingredients ready, let’s move on to the step-by-step instructions:
1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
3. In a separate large bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
4. Add the yogurt and vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture and mix until well combined.
5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the dough.
6. Gently fold in the chocolate chips, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
7. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
8. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown.
9. Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
10. Enjoy these delectable yogurt chocolate chip cookies with a glass of milk or a cup of tea! They can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days, if they last that long!
