Buttermilk Chocolate Drop Cookies

Wednesday, December 4, 2019
When I use buttermilk in my cookie recipes like this chocolate drop cookie, I consider them a gourmet treat.

Everything comes out better with buttermilk in the recipe.

Sure, you probably are thinking biscuits are the normal use for buttermilk right?

I have used it for many other recipes that are over and above better than using regular milk.

Some of the reasons why buttermilk is better are mentioned below.

These cookies are so light buttery and addicting and there are no eggs in this recipe.

These buttermilk chocolate drop cookies are one of my all-time favorites.

These melt in your mouth, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and tender texture with a buttery taste is what makes these a gourmet cookie!

A chocolate lover's delight for sure.

These cookies are so easy to make.

Just mix, drop on a cookies sheet bake and enjoy!

For this fabulous chocolate drop cookie that I make often.

After making these delicious cookies, I always have buttermilk in the refrigerator to cook with, I just love using it!

I love using buttermilk it makes the best pancakes, shortcake and even used for soaking chicken wings before deep frying.

Scroll down to the recipe card and bake a double batch, these won't last long!

Buttermilk Makes The Difference!



This kind of milk brings out the chocolate flavor to another level.


It makes them tender and not dry.


I love using buttermilk in my skillet shortcake recipe and perfect to use to dip my chicken or any meats before breading it in.

is fantastic, it really helps them rise and get a get top!


Buttermilk is also an ingredient I use in my homemade pork breakfast sausages, they come out so juicy and tender.


Store-bought buttermilk is made from milk treated with lactic acid bacteria.


The results are always the best for cooking and baking, it's really delicious, and I love using it.


It's a multi-purpose ingredient that can tenderize meat in marinades and give anything you bake using some leavening agents like baking powder or baking soda, the buttermilk is an aid that helps in making the recipe rise perfectly.

But trust me it's used in so many great recipes and these chocolate cookies are delightful.

Tips



  • Don't overbake these, just cook until set in the middles
  • Use only unsweetened cocoa powder
  • For uniform-sized cookies, use an ice cream scoop to drop them
  • Only use store-bought gourmet-style buttermilk
  • Cool for at least 3 to 5 minutes before removing hot cookies, they are tender and will break

Drop Cookies



I am a big fan of easy baking!


Drop cookies are so simple.


Mix, drop on a cookie sheet and bake!


I like using an ice cream scoop to keep them all around the same size.


How much easier can it be other than a no-bake cookie?
