Let’s Bake Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort’s Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Welcome back to Saturday Snacks! I hope that your 7 days was a great one particular.

Who does not adore chocolate chip cookies? Personally, I imagine that chocolate chip cookies straight out of the oven are some of life’s greatest joys. And just being aware of that a batch can be whipped up at any minute – a undesirable day, a very good day, a Tuesday – is a comforting matter.

My go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies is observed on the again of the Nestle Semi-Sweet Morsels bag. Currently, I’m stepping absent from the recipe on that brilliant yellow bag and I’m providing a recipe designed by the bakery workforce at Walt Disney World‘s flagship resort a try out.

A number of several years in the past, Disney Parks Website, in honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day (which is May well 15th you should mark it down for upcoming year), shared the recipe that the pastry cooks at Disney’s Grand Floridian Vacation resort and Spa whip up for their attendees. I transpired to have all of the needed substances on hand, so I experienced a great sensation about this recipe right from the get started.

The Grand’s recipe deviates from the Toll Home recipe that I’m so utilized to. For illustration, in its place of granulated sugar, the pastry cooks request us to use powdered sugar, and, in today’s recipe, two teaspoons of vanilla are utilised as opposed to Toll House’s one teaspoon.

This is the first cookie recipe that I have ever baked that calls for powdered sugar as an alternative of granulated sugar. Powdered sugar is granulated sugar which is been ground to, effectively, powder. Cornstarch is also additional to the sugar to avert clumping. From what I’ve go through, the use of powdered sugar could enable the cookies to be softer for lengthier, and will modify the composition of the cookie. Hmmm…we’re discovering new factors here, close friends.

1st matters initial. Preheat your oven to 330 degrees. This is a a great deal lower temp than I’m made use of to using for baking cookies, so again, we’re learning new things. 🙂

Sift the flour, salt, and baking soda collectively. My sifter gave up the ghost, so I’m resorting to whisking the components to be certain that everything’s integrated and that all clumps are damaged up. A whisk does the trick in a pinch.

Following, toss the softened butter, powdered sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl and cream it until eventually it develops a lighter color. The regularity of the batter at this issue took on a grainier look than cookie doughs that I’m utilized to, so I’m contemplating that that had a thing to do with the powdered sugar.

The recipe phone calls for you to now drop in a single egg at a time with the mixer running, and then to include in the 2 teaspoons of vanilla.

It’s time to insert in the flour combination to your wet substances. Please increase just a bit of the dry substances at a time. If you don’t, as quickly as you switch your mixer on, you will have snowy flour floating everywhere.

Scrape the sides down, and stir in the chocolate chips. And pop at least one particular in your mouth.

I employed a cookie scooper to portion the dough out on the baking sheets, and then positioned them in the oven. The recipe suggests that medium cookies should really be done in 10 to 12 minutes, and that bigger cookies should consider 12 to 14 minutes to bake. I checked my cookies at 10 minutes, and then all over again at 12 minutes since the weren’t close to currently being accomplished. The cookies nonetheless weren’t done at 12 minutes, but they had been eventually a mild golden coloration soon after 14 minutes.

The cookies ended up thicker and puffier than a standard Toll Dwelling cookie. I was apprehensive that the vanilla taste would overpower the cookie, but it did not. The result was a mouth watering, thick cookie. The ratio of cookie to chocolate was, in my belief, fantastic.

This cookie is not chewy, so if a chewier cookie is a lot more your thing, the Grand Floridian’s recipe might not be for you.

Now all you and I will need to do is brew a pot of tea (Twinings’ Irish Breakfast for me, be sure to), set on our fancy clothes, set a cookie or two (or four) on our nicest plate, and enjoy a bit of Disney’s Grand Floridian Vacation resort at property.

Please let me know if you attempt this recipe. And make sure you allow me know in the feedback part underneath what you’re baking up these days. Have a good weekend!
