Baking #80: Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was trying to keep up with blogging but it was so hard after I had stopped for a good two months previously. I do have two skincare products to review about but have yet taken pictures of them. I think I shall do them tonight.

Anyways, I baked cookies the other day. I made the dough earlier last week but only baked a small batch just to test water and keep the remaining dough inside the fridge. Baked the remaining dough last Sunday afternoon when I came home from Limbang.

My gym trainer complained that I had been putting on fat percentage albeit my weight dropped by nearly three kilos in within two weeks. To be honest, I managed to drop like 3% of fat percentage two weeks ago but then I guess they all came back as I had a bit of the cookies I baked and some chips. So, no more high carbs food for me from now onwards until my fat percentage dropped to the safe zone.


Albeit I can’t eat them anymore, it doesn’t stop me from baking them. Baking somehow takes my mind off things and kill boredom. Cookies are easier to make but time consuming unless you have a big oven. Mine is the average size one whereby I could only bake like 16 small pieces at a time.


Chocolate Chip Cookies (adapted from ZaTaYa Yummy)


  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 180g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup fine white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Place dry ingredients – bread flour, baking soda and salt together into a mixing bowl. Give them a stir with balloon whisk until well combined and set aside.
  2. In another bowl, mix the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar together until smooth. Add in whole egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  3. Pour in the flour mixture and beat on low until well combined.
  4. Add in chocolate chips and mix until well incorporated.
  5. Put in the cookie dough into the fridge to allow the dough to set for at least an hour before baking.
  6. Using a measuring teaspoon, scoop the cookie dough and shape them into balls. Place them on baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven of 180 degree Celsius for approximately 10 minutes. *Baking time varies as it depends on the size of each cookie dough. The bigger it is, the more baking time required*
  7. Leave the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before removing them to cool on a wire cooling rack.


I did not count how many cookies this recipe can yield. But I think I got about 80 pieces with the size that I made. Stored them into containers and sealed them so as to preserve the freshness. Mom will be leaving for hometown so I baked them for her to bring to my youngest aunt. I am sure she is gonna like them as she likes sweet snacks.

To be honest, I am very tempted to eat a few of these cookies but my gym trainer had been complaining about my fat percentage. So, I am gonna be good and follow what she says. *sigh*
