American Cookies

Hello my lovelies!!

So I keep cooking and baking and as a result the local clientele (understand here my 3 absolutely charming children) is starting to be picky… Are you kidding me or what??? Kids…

Mum, your cookies are very good but we would prefer if you made large American cookies like at beep! (I won’t mention the name of the place @#!$%£).

You get it … There I go making large American cookies!

I have already 3 really nice recipes here on the blog…

– My chocolate cookies : super smooth cookies, with melting chocolate in the middle

– The pecan nut and chocolate cookies : these ones are more crunchy cookies, not to mention that it is a recipe by Pierre Marcolini!!

– And the outrageous chocolate cookies by Martha Stewart !

And you see, apparently that is not enough!!

There you go Mummy! Back to work!

I looked for recipes, I tried a few (most of the recipes I found were too sweet), and here they are! The large Amercian cookies!!

The recipe is really easy and quick to make! No need to place the batter in the fridge to rest (I must say that it’s quite convenient when you don’t have much time) and the result is quite convincing!

So I must admit that my children were probably right to push me a little out of the box… 😉

The key point of this recipe will be the baking part. First, you will need two trays with a baking mat or baking paper. You will have to leave enough space between the dough balls… And then you will stop baking them even if they won’t look enough baked to you. They should be very soft in the center and rather crunchy on the sides once they have cooled down. Depending on the oven, baking time will be 18 to 20 minutes, not more!

The utensils:

Your food processor (you can mix by hand with a spatula too),

2 baking mats (my De Buyer ones are great!),

And an ice cream spoon to shape the cookies.

5-10 minutes of preparation and bam! You are going to make happy people!!

Let’s see the recipe, Chef!

    Bonjour Emma, et merci pour cette délicieuse recette. J’ai déjà fait celles de cookies au chocolat de Martha Stewart. Un vrai délice ! Merci pour ce partage. J’ai une question : quelle est la taille de la cuillère à glace (diamètre)? Vous n’êtes pas la première que je vois utiliser cette cuillère pour faire des cookies et je trouve la taille parfaite. Merci pour ce conseil. Bonne journée !

    Bonjour Emmanuelle.
    Je voudrais faire vos cookies mais je me rends compte que je n’ai pas de bicarbonate. Pas quoi je peux le remplacer?

      Bonjour Caroline,
      Vous pouvez remplacer le bicarbonate par de la levure chimique, prenez 4 g en plus des 2 g déjà prévus.
      Merci pour vos compliments !!
      Belle journée, prenez soin de vous !

    Bonjour !

    J’ai très envie d’essayer vos cookies mais je voudrais réduire drastiquement la quantité de sucre. Pensez vous que cela soit possible ? Et si oui en quelle proportion ?
