Chick-Fil-A Cookie Recipe

This post may contain affiliate links. I may receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. All opinions remain my own.

My twist to the Chick-Fil-A cookie recipe is a soft and decadent cookie that is crispy on the outside but a melt-in-your-mouth on the inside.

These cookies will certainly be a winner in your home as they have been in mine.

If you’ve never had the Chick-Fil-A most coveted cookie, this mock version of their chocolate chip cookie will soon become your family tradition.

Whether you’re rewarding good behavior or serving as a 4 O’clock snack, these tried and tested chocolate chip cookies will be your ultimate favorite dessert.

Although the original Chick-Fil-A cookie recipe has wholesome oats for that old-fashioned touch, I prefer mine without oats.

If you or one of your family members has an oat allergy, be sure to skip it as well.

I also don’t use the milk chocolate chips as in the original recipe.

I prefer to use the dark (70% preferably) semi-sweet chocolate in mine, but feel free to add both if you’d like.

Here’s what’s interesting about this method

We’ll be using:

●    Two types of sugars

●    Large chunks of extra dark semi-sweet chocolate chips

●    Optional refrigeration

●    Good quality butter

●    No fancy gadgets needed

This recipe is quite an easy win because I use top-notch ingredients and a little secret hack I learned.

I gently brown my butter to a nice golden hue with a nutty scent, giving the cookies a distinct depth of flavor.

I guess now it’s no longer a secret.

I also don’t need to use all the fancy gadgets in my preparation.

Just enough muscle strength, your bowl, and spatula.

How cool is that?

This recipe makes for about eight chocolate chip cookies.

You can double the batch according to your serving.

Ingredients:

● 8 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter

●    ½ Cup White Sugar

●    ½ Cup Dark Brown Sugar

●    1 Egg

●    1 Teaspoon Vanilla

●    ½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt

●    ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda

●    1 1/3 Cups All-Purpose Flour

●   1 Cup Large Dark Chocolate Chips

Method:

1.    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2.    In a saucepan, melt and carefully brown your butter until you get a nice golden-brown texture with a nutty scent. Set aside and let the butter cool down for about 5 minutes.

3.    In a large mixing bowl, add your already cooled butter, white sugar, and brown sugar, then start mixing. Mix well until the butter is incorporated and the sugars are nice and fluffy.

4.    Add the egg (make sure it’s room temperature) and mix well until you get a thick slimy consistency.

5.    Carefully start adding the vanilla, salt, and baking soda, and mix well or until everything is fully incorporated.

6.    Add your flour and chocolate chip chunks simultaneously and give it a good mix.

7.    Take your parchment-lined baking sheet and with your ice cream scoop, start scooping large round balls of your cookie dough.

8.    Space your dough balls at least 2 inches apart to give room for spreading as they bake.

9.    You can sprinkle your dough balls with a hint of sea salt if you like. This will complement the semi-sweet chocolate perfectly and give a nice kick to the flavor.

10.    Chill your dough balls for about 5 minutes if you like your cookies neither too thick nor thin. I like mine nice and flat for that extra crispiness on the edges, so I skip the chilling part.

11.    Bake for about 11-12 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

12.    Remove from the oven, then cool on a wire rack until completely cooled.

13.    Serve or store in an airtight container at room temperature.

Helpful tips:

For the perfect crispy on the outside and an extra depth of flavor to your cookies, you need to:

●    Use quality ingredients. The quality of ingredients you use will determine the kind of cookies you get. For example, you need to go for the best quality butter for perfect results.

●    You need to use both white sugar and dark brown sugar for the perfect texture on your cookies. The white sugar will give your cookies that delicate crisp, while the molasses in the brown sugar will provide extra chew.

Options of the Chick-Fil-A cookies you can choose from:

●    Chocolate chip cookies (soft type)

●    Cookie

●    Oatmeal cookies

●    Sugar cookie (includes vanilla)

●    Peanut butter cookies

●    Shortbread cookies
