Welcome back friends! I hope this post finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy! This week we’ll be baking Jack Jack’s Num Num Chocolate Chip Cookies from Disney and Pixar’s Incredibles 2.
This recipe is featured when Lucius Best (Frozone) checks in on Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) in his new homemaking role. Bob is struggling with Jack Jack’s abundant powers, but has discovered he will temporarily settle down for cookies.
These chocolate chip cookies are slender, soft and scrumptious. Pixar recently released an official recipe for Jack Jack’s cookies that looks and tastes absolutely fantastic, but the cookies come out much thicker-looking than the ones in the film so I decided to create my own independent recipe for the fun of it. I imagine Jack Jack wouldn’t discriminate!
JACK JACK’S NUM NUM COOKIES
- 1 cup of butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups of packed brown sugar (I used dark)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 1/4 cups of cake flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Using a mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar.
- Add the vanilla and then the eggs in one at a time, mixing after each egg.
- In a separate bowl, combine the cake flour, baking soda and salt with a whisk.
- Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing well after each addition until a thick fluffy dough forms.
- Using a mixing spoon, fold in the 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips until well-distributed throughout the dough.
- Cover the bowl and place it in the refrigerator for about 24 hours. This step is optional if you’re in a rush for the cookies, but they will spread a little less if chilled.
- After the dough has chilled, preheat the oven to 325F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Remove the dough from the refrigerator and using a small ice cream scoop or a regular spoon (I used a spoon), begin portioning out the dough into balls of cookie dough (about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter), and placing them on the baking sheet.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 14 minutes. Baking time may vary depending on your oven so please keep an eye on the cookies and find a time that works for you.
- Remove the cookies from the oven when they are golden brown on the edges and allow them to cool on the pan for about 2 minutes. Then remove them from the pan and allow them to completely cool on a wire rack.
