Jane's "Subway" Chocolate Chip Cookies
My last attempt to make Subway-style chocolate chip cookies went OK but not super great. As a result, foodie friend Jane sent me an outline for her version. She has been baking them for 12 years and says none compare to this one. You know what? I totally agree!
You need 1 cup of margarine for this recipe. I happened to have PC's Blue Menu Celeb Omega 3 Margarine so that is what I used. Make sure to level off the margarine! I did that after I took the photograph.
Cream 1 cup of packed brown sugar and...
... 2/3 cup white sugar into the margarine. I like this because it is so soft, I could easily do so by hand.
Add 2 eggs, one at a time, making sure they are well incorporated first.
Add 1 tsp of vanilla.
Whisk together 2 1/2 cup flour, 1 tsp baking soda and a nice pinch of salt.
Add to the cookie batter.
Fold in 1 1/2 to 2 cups of chips. I eyeballed it but Reg said they needed more, LOL.
I used a mini scoop to divvy out the dough into around 1 tbsp balls of dough.
I gave each cookie around 1 1/2" to 2" space in between on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
I baked in a 325F oven for 9-10 minutes. They were golden on the bottom but still very soft. I immediately used a spatula to carefully move them to a cooling rack.
Perfection! Absolute perfection! OK well maybe they could use more chocolate chips but that was my fault.
So soft, melt-in-your-mouth fabulous! Just like Subway's chocolate chip cookies. This recipe makes a lot so I asked Reg if he wanted to take some to work and share and he said, nooooooooooo way! I do not really blame him, these are so delicious they are hard to give away.
They truly were the best cookies I have made in a long, long time and they are going in my special "cookies" folder. There are only three recipes that have made it in there and this will be one of them.
Thank you Jane! These were perfection and I look forward to trying your White Chocolate & Macadamian Nut cookies very soon too.
I give these cookies five out of five wooden spoons and a big, big foodie hug.
