Chocolate Chip Cookie Making Tips And Tricks
Undoubtably I’m always looking for a new recipes for chocolate chip cookies. There are many great tips and tricks for making better cookies. This recipe for big buttery chocolate chip cookies includes a number of those tricks.
Some of the differences that can be found in this recipe include using bread flour, chilling the dough in the freezer for a short period of time and baking straight from the freezer.
Bread flour has a higher protein content and consequently that helps to create a chewier cookie. Chilling the dough does a number of things for cookies. When cookie dough is chilled, it helps control the spread of cookies. The fat in cookie dough is solidified when chilled, thus taking it longer to melt when baked. Chilled dough also helps concentrate the flavor in cookies. Dough that has been chilled often results in a cookie with a greater depth of flavor. Cookie dough that is chilled also tends to dry out some, which helps concentrate the sugar, which impacts the flavor and texture.
These easy and small changes can help create delicious chocolate chip cookies. If buttery cookies that are crisp on the edges yet chewy in the center are your goal, give this recipe a try.
This is a great chocolate chip cookie recipe to add to your collection. These cookies definitely disappear quickly, perhaps too quickly! Willpower is, after all, not in the list of ingredients.
Big Buttery Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
- 3 cups bread flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 /2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup butter cold
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsps vanilla extract
- 1 cup semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips standard size
- 1 cup semi-sweet chips mini size
- 1. First, in the bowl of an electric mixer, beat cold butter for until light and creamy. Next, add in brown sugar and regular sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating until incorporated. Finally add in vanilla and mix well.
- 2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Next, stir to combine. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Finally, fold in chocolate chips. In order to avoid tough cookies, do not over mix.
- 3. Using a large cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, scoop large portions of cookie dough onto a cookie sheet lined with a silicone baking mat. The cookie sheet should be one that you can fit inside your freezer. Cookies can be placed close to each other because this sheet is going right into your freezer and not your oven.
- 4. Freeze cookie dough on your baking sheet for one hour.
- 5. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Once oven has reached temperature, remove six of your cookie dough balls from the freezer and place them on another baking sheet, lined with a silicone baking sheet or parchment paper. Bake for approximately 15-18 minutes or until starting to turn golden brown around the edges.
- 6. Remove from oven and place baking sheet onto a wire rack to cool. Allow cookies to cool completely on rack before removing from sheet. Afterwards repeat with remaining balls of cookie dough. Finally, store in an airtight container.
