One of the hardest things to resist in the world is a Subway cookie. It takes all my energy not to pick up this treat when we go out for a quick bite. So dense yet moist and melt-in-your mouth… They take me to foodie nirvana.
After I burned all those chocolate chip cookies the other day I was determined to make a heavenly batch of what was supposed to be similar to the chocolate chip Subway classic. I used this recipe in an attempt to redeem myself and try something new at the same time.
I was going to make the entire recipe as you can see here with the two sticks of unsalted butter and two large eggs coming up to room temperature with a bowl of hot water in my microwave. Yes, I was too lazy to get my proofer out. I let it sit in there while I had a shower and got some things done.
Then I realized I only had just under 1 cup of self-raising flour. I topped it with all purpose and did half the recipe instead but will write it in full for you.
Cream two sticks room temperature butter with 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1 cup of packed down brown sugar.
Mix in 2 tsp vanilla extract.
Add two eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly in between additions.
Add 2 cups of sifted self-rising flour a little bit at a time, beating mixture together.
Add 1 12 oz package of chocolate chips. Chill dough covered in the fridge for one hour.
Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Scoop a tbsp of dough and roll into a ball. Put 8 balls of dough on the sheet leaving space in between.
Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 12-13 minutes, until golden brown. Allow cookies to cool and then eat!
These are very nice chocolate chip cookies. Are they like Subway’s? No, not at all. Damn it! I will say they brown perfectly and when nuked a little in the oven, they are quite delicious but Lorraine’s (made with shortening) are better and so are Martha’s. These are pretty typical chocolate chip cookies and definitely not fudgy and super moist.
If you know of a recipe that is similar to Subway’s cookies, please let me know. I would love to test them and if they pass, I will make the white chocolate macadamia nut version too! Those are my personal favourite. Yum.
Just another day in a foodie’s life. Off to search for more perfect recipes…
