What Ingredients You Need
Flour – (I used all purpose for this recipe.)
Cornstarch – ( It makes these chocolate chip cookies extra chewy and soft )
Butter ( They key is just to make sure that your butter is legit room-temperature so that it will cream correctly with the sugars.)
Granulated sugar – ( feel free to experiment with different granulated/brown ratios if you prefer.)
Brown sugar – (for that delicious molasses flavor)
Egg – ( you can substitute this for 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce.)
Vanilla extract – (it’s the small secret that makes these cookies extra delicious.)
Semisweet Chocolate chips – ( you can sub in mixture of either dark or milk chocolate or even chocolate chunks!)
How To Make Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies
The trick to make gooey cookies is not to OVER BAKE them. They will not look done when you remove them from the oven at the end of baking time, but they are. They will set up while cooling on baking sheet for a few minutes. That is the secret that makes these cookies so amazing! The corn starch is also a key to softness and thickness as well. Don’t over mix ingredients or you may end up with dry and hard
Why Are My Cookies Puffy?
It is very important to measure ingredients, especially the flour accurately, If you accidentally put too much flour in the dough it will prevent cookies to spread. Use a measuring cup made for dry ingredients.
Make sure that your butter and sugar mixture is well creamed.
Why Are My Cookies Flat?
To prevent flat cookies Refrigerate your cookie dough for at least an hour, that allows ingredients to settle together after mixing. The warmer the cookie dough is when you put it in the oven, the flatter and thinner your cookies will be.
Can You Freeze Chocolate Chip Cookies Dough?
Yes! You can make Chocolate Chip dough ahead, roll it into balls, chill in the fridge for an hour and freeze. When you want to bake just remove from the freezer, place them on parchment lined baking pan and leave at room temperature for 1-2 hours to thaw (covered) and bake! Freeze cookie dough for up to 3 months.
