If you have ever wanted to cook like your Sims do, we have got you covered. Well, maybe not exactly like them, because Sims are kind of strange. We’re pretty sure the Sim in the cover image of this recipe was using Wasabi or something in her choc chip cookies.
But, we digress. If you want to use Wasabi in your chocolate chip cookies, we won’t judge. You do you, boo. Life is too short.
Now, for this part, recipe sites will usually write a long story about the secret family recipe and how grandma used to bake it every second Sunday after a full moon and what what.
We’re not going to mess around with that stuff. We’ll get straight to the point. But first, remember that the recipes on our list won’t be exactly like the ones in The Sims 4 – so if you’re only interested in what you need for the version in your game, you can scroll on past this real life stuff.
While baking is a science in most cases, cookies are bit more forgiving so you can tweak these to your liking. A few more chocolate chips here, a bit less sugar there a blueberry or three… you get the idea.
Choc chip cookies recipe (real life, not for The Sims)
2 cups all-purpose (plain) flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
170g butter (salted or unsalted), melted
1 cup brown sugar (you can add more or a bit less or even substitute with a tablespoon of honey if you want)
1 teaspoon of vanilla paste (a tablespoon of extract if you can’t find paste)
1 egg yolk
2 cups chocolate chips (dark, white or milk – whatever you wish).
Pre-heat your oven to 165 degrees Celsius.
Line your cookie tray with non-stick baking paper.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
In another medium bowl, beat together the butter and sugar. Beat until mixed thoroughly and creamy.
Add in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Beat until well blended.
Using a spoon mix in the dry ingredients until combined. And stir in the choc chips.
Drop spoon sized pieces of the dough onto the prepared cookie trays allowing for enough space between them – they’ll be expanding when they bake.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until the edges just start to go a nice golden brown.
Cool on the cookie tray for a few minutes and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
The Sims 4 Chocolate Chip Cookies: In-game recipe
For the virtual version, Sims need to reach Level 4 of the cooking skill (not baking) and are available for The Sims 4 base game. Unlike your real life choc chip cookie recipe, Sims do not need any ingredients to make this one. They’re vegetarian-safe, too.
