chocolate chip cakies_1

I came up with the name ‘cakies’ after creating a new recipe for cookies that were thicker in size than conventional cookies. My husband is a big cookie eater and I am more of a cake eater, so combined we are both satisfied. The sea salt sprinkle is the extra little kick in the cakies. This is my favorite food to give away to friends, but I have to be fast before my husband eats them all.

  1. • 8 ounces (225 grams) unsalted melted butter
  2. • 15 ounces (425grams) bread flour
  3. • 1 teaspoon salt
  4. • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  5. • 1 ounce (30 grams) granulated sugar
  6. • 6 ounces (170 grams) light brown sugar
  7. • 1 large egg
  8. • 1 large egg yolk
  9. • 1 ounce (30 grams) whole milk
  10. • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  11. • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  12. • Sea salt flakes
  1. • Kitchen scale
  2. • Sifter
  3. • Hand mixer
  4. • 1 medium bowl
  5. • 2 large measuring cups
  6. • Cooling rack
  1. (Prepare flour-, egg- and butter mixture separately before combining)
  2. 1. Melt the butter in the microwave or in a pan over low heat. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. 2. Sift flour, salt & baking soda into one of the large measuring cups
  4. 3. In another measuring cup, whisk together the whole egg, egg yolk, milk and vanilla extract.
  5. 4. In a medium-sized bowl, pour in the melted butter, sugar and brown sugar and beat the mixture together with a hand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.
  6. 5. Reduce the hand mixer speed and slowly add the egg mixture until thoroughly combined, about 30 seconds.
  7. 6. Gradually add the flour mix to the bowl, while mixing (make sure to scrape the sides of the bowl). Once the flour is worked in, drop the speed to low and add the chocolate chips. Chill the dough for an hour in the refrigerator. I use 6 ounces of bittersweet chocolate chunks (chocolate cut in bigger pieces) and 6 ounces of chocolate chips.
  8. 7. Preheat the oven to 375 0F (1900C) and place the rack in the top third and bottom third of the oven.
  9. 8. Scoop the dough into small balls and place them onto parchment-lined sheet pans. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes and bake 2 sheets at a time for about 15 min or until the cakies are slightly browned. Rotate the pans halfway through.
  10. 9. Remove from the oven and slide the parchment with cakies onto a cooling rack. Wait for at least 5 minutes to cool and then enjoy.

I LOVE FOOD and better yet I LOVE TO COOK.

I can thank my Vietnamese roots. Vietnamese people use a great amount of time cooking and eating, traits which they have learned from their families. Everyone seems to know how to cook, and they are adept at picking fresh and quality foods from the market. Food is a priority in Vietnam – if you eat well, you live well.

I was born in Denmark, and in my mind I am a true Dane. Danish people cook a lot as well, but they prefer to spend less time in the kitchen and more time at the table. I consider myself Vietnamese from a culinary standpoint and Danish from a cultural standpoint (and I live in New York, which is a Mecca for foodies).

My mum is a great cook, she taught me how to chop vegetables and how to just randomly throw things together and somehow get an awesome meal. She makes cooking seem like art, and she is my inspiration for DiepLicious cooking.

My husband loves food as well and he has a great appetite. Cooking for him is a real joy. He has a great interest in everything that concerns health, and loves to point out specific foods and why they are good for you to eat. I will share his knowledge with you. He makes my cooking more challenging, but also a lot healthier.

I offer you one Golden Rule: to enjoy food fully, always taste the food even if you don’t like it. For me it takes a couple of tries to get to know the real flavor.
