12 Weeks Of Christmas | Week 12: Gooey Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookies {Recipe Redux}

deep dish cookies out of the ovenThis recipe is too good to not share again. The best of a blondie, cake and chocolate chip cookie all in one. With all those cookie swaps and assortments cookie boxes during the holidays, it’s nice to mix things up a little and create an individually-portioned dessert cookie. At once melty, crunchy and chewy, this deep dish chocolate chipper is a little hard to beat.

Sure, there may be a little extra washing up for the host (with all those ramekins,) but you’re guests will love you for it.

Gooey Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookies | Soft Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

The chocolate chip cookie. It may be the plain Jane, the everyday cookie, the cookie which even has the capacity to elicit a yawn in the age of boutique cupcakeries, dessert bars and bespoke macaron makers.

But a good, warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie…can really do no wrong. Even the most persnickety of dessert snobs will agree that a well-made chocolate chipper hits all the right spots. It may not have the exotic charm of an ispahan macaron or require deft skills, but it is a dessert to be loved and revered just as ardently.

I think that is what makes the chocolate chip cookie so appealing to me- there are no hard and fast rules; you can play around with flavours and ingredients and still call it a chocolate chip cookie.

♥ The chocolate chip cookie is not going to kick up a fuss because the air is too humid (like a macaron.)

♥  It doesn’t have to compete with a frosting, or rely on one to make it complete (like a cupcake.)

♥  You can carry them in a ziplock in your handbag from Frankfurt to Bombay and re-discover them, still intact and just as delicious, 2 days later. (Yes, I am referring to myself.)

These cookies are what I expect a perfect chocolate chip cookie to be: a little firm, a little cakey, delightfully chewy and with chocolate chips that are melting as you bite in. (There, I had my Nigella moment. Done. Dusted.)
