Have you ever wanted to bake Blue Ribbon-worthy chocolate chip cookies, but instead, you wound up with barely edible over or undercooked orbs? Good news. You'll be the hit of every party after watching this step-by-step TikTok video from content creator @mildwestsami. She shares with us her easy-to-follow, Idaho State Fair, Blue Ribbon winning chocolate chip cookie recipe.
And while baking cookies for the proper amount of time can be very tricky, she also gives us an easy way to tell when they are done. Check out her secret to Blue Ribbon chocolate chip cookies. We can smell these baking in our mind and are drooling at the very thought!
Yum! They really do look incredible. She begins by creaming softened (not melted) butter, with white and brown sugar, then adds an egg and vanilla and stirs until fluffy. Then, she adds the dry ingredients on top, mixing them together before incorporating into the wet mixture. Next is our favorite part of this recipe, adding in an abundance of mini chocolate chips, enough so that it is almost a 50/50 dough to chip ratio!
This recipe inspired a lot of users to get up and start baking, and it gave others some great ideas, too. One commenter, @Stefanie said, “Ooooh, what about sprinkling some flaky sea salt on the top when they come out of the oven?" We like the way she thinks! Another smart idea came from user @Laura, who said, "I want to be friends with you." Yes, we do, too, and we would be happy to test out the next Blue Ribbon recipe for her!
