How to Make DANK Cookies

Screen Shot 2018-04-18 at 6.02.01 PM

It seems like I’m constantly changing and transforming into a different version of myself every year, but one thing has stayed consistent throughout my life: my love for salted chocolate chip cookies. So I was ecstatic to find out Jae shares this enthusiasm and love for perfectly baked cookies.

Ah, there’s no better feeling than biting into a warm, crispy yet soft, homemade cookie as you silently people-watch outside in perfect weather (trust me, it’s a lot less creepy than it sounds haha). You can’t really go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie; however, there are marginal differences that can either make you feel like savoring every last bite or a cookie that just makes you feel like a ball of shit. I wanted to find the former.

I made it my mission to find the best recipe and baking technique because I know it will come in handy one day. This recipe is good enough to bribe your friends, cheer up somebody, or maybe even persuade your boyfriend/girlfriend into forgiving you after a fight. Haha.

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • sea salt for sprinkling
  • 1 egg and 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 stick) unsalted melted butter
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, beat your melted butter and sugars together.
  3. Add in the egg and mix until combined…then the egg yolk and mix until combined.
  4. Add in the vanilla and mix.
  5. Then, in another bowl, whisk together your flour, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Gradually add it to the sugar mixture and mix until just combined.
  7. Fold in the chopped chocolate.
  8. Spray on oil or butter up your baking sheet before scooping out 2-tablespoon sized balls onto your sheets.
  9. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  10. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until just lightly golden and set.
  11. Cool on the sheets for a few minutes before removing to a rack.

That’s what I asked myself before signing up for Coffee Meets Bagel five months ago. But it actually turned out to be the best decision of my life.

Before we dive into today’s topic, I want to welcome you to our very first Mukbang episode! If you don’t know what it is, here’s a definition.

Jae and I recently discovered some magical, make-it-yourself, Korean bread/pastry at our local asian grocery store and we were blown away by its chewy, crispy deliciousness. Basically, these sesame balls complete our lives.

What you need:

  • Huge bowl
  • One egg
  • 70 mL of water

Directions:

  1. Throw everything into the huge bowl and mix your heart out
  2. Roll out the dough into small balls
  3. Spray the balls with water for thicker and crispier crust (or skip if you’re not into that)
  4. Bake it in the oven at 360 degrees for 30 minutes

They’re extremely easy to make and are the perfect snack to munch on while talking about how we met on CMB (Coffee Meets Bagel).
