Looking for that perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie? Look no further, because I have it for you! Chocolate Chip cookies undoubtedly a staple, and finding the perfect one can be a challenge. Clearly, you have come to the right place, to find the perfect cookie!
Chocolate Chip Cookies can vary greatly. Too much flour, not enough butter. Without a doubt, it takes time to find the perfect combination. I am glad you found my blog for the perfect cookie!
Why is this Chocolate Chip Cookie So Good?
This cookie has the perfect texture. In addition to the little crunch it has, you’ll find it still has a gooey center! If your like me and don’t like a flat and too crunchy cookie, this is the perfect cookie for you!
I have seen a lot of recipes that call for melted butter…I have never loved the way those turn out. I prefer the butter to be at room temp, but not overly soft. This way the cookie will not spread as much! The less spread you have the thicker the cookie.
Should I refrigerate my Cookie Dough?
This is totally up to you. I usually do not plan my cookies far enough in advance so I don’t have the time. However, refrigeration further prevents spreading, while making your cookie more ideal if you like them thicker and chewier.
The best allergen free chocolate chips!
Since I have a lot of food allergies, I read labels and try new things all the time. I am always on the hunt for chocolate chips without soy. There are several brands that have these, Nestle, Enjoy life, and I have seen some generic brands as well. They are a little more expensive, but definitely worth it. Without a doubt, I found the best deal at Costco! Organic Artisan Kettle Organic Chocolate chips. 32 Ounces for $9!! Usually the 8 ounce bags cost $4-$5, so this is a huge deal and they taste the best!
Can these be gluten free?
Absolutely!! I have made them gluten free and liked them just as much. My kids didn’t even notice a difference. All you have to do is substitute the all purpose flour for gluten free flour. Make sure the GF flour says cup for cup or 1:1! You will not be disappointed, and will still get the perfect chocolate chip cookie!
Now let’s get to the Ingredients!
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
