 Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here are a few tips to make the best chocolate chip cookie ever!

  • Baking soda or Baking Powder, or both? Baking soda creates a soft and fluffy cookie. Replacing baking soda with baking powder instead will result in a cookie that has a cakey texture. The combination of baking soda and baking powder makes the cookies flatten and soft in the middle. The edges will become crispy.
  • Butter:   Room temperature butter or melted butter works well with this recipe. To reduce the amount of salt use unsalted butter.
  • Flour: If you increase the amount of flour in this recipe, the dough will not spread as much and the cookie texture will be thick and gooey inside. That is why it’s important to measure the flour accurately.
  • Sugar:  Using brown sugar will change the color of the cookie making it a darker color. In this recipe, I use light brown sugar instead of the dark because the cocoa powder makes it dark enough on its own. Another quality of the brown sugar is that it contains molasses which gives a more intense flavor to the cookie which is very similar to the taste of caramel. In my opinion, the combination of the two sugars granulated and brown is the perfect balance for taste and texture.

Flavor:

  • The vanilla extract flavor pairs very well with chocolate
  • Adding  some puree ginger to the batter add a kick to this recipe
  • Try to use good quality chocolate. One of my favorites is: Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips
