  1. Quality Ingredients: Start with high-quality ingredients like real butter, pure vanilla extract, and good-quality chocolate chips for the best flavor.
  2. Proper Mixing: Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy to ensure a tender cookie texture.
  3. Don’t Overmix: Once you add the dry ingredients, mix just until combined. Overmixing can result in tough cookies.
  4. Chill the Dough: For thicker, chewier cookies, chill the dough for at least 30 minutes before baking. This helps prevent spreading in the oven.
  5. Use Parchment Paper: Line your baking sheets with parchment paper to prevent the cookies from sticking and ensure even baking.
  6. Monitor Baking Time: Keep a close eye on the cookies while baking, as they can go from golden brown to overdone very quickly. Remove them from the oven when the edges are set but the centers still look slightly underdone for soft, gooey cookies.
  7. Let Them Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This helps them set and prevents them from falling apart.
  8. Experiment: Feel free to customize your cookies by adding nuts, different types of chocolate, or even a sprinkle of sea salt on top before baking.

Chef’s Tip: Allowing your dough to rest overnight in the fridge adds a depth of flavor that can’t be beaten! Of course, if you’re in a hurry let the dough chill for an hour and then bake.

Use a Scale to Weigh Your Ingredients!

  • Salt is a cookies best friend, so don’t skip it or skimp on it! Salt gives balance and depth of flavor to cookies. We even sprinkle a touch on top just before baking. 
  • Don’t overmix the dough, you want to make sure that the batter is mixed fully but not over-beaten. Over-beating creates a tough, dense cookie. Once the flour is blended then fold in your chocolate chips and other add-ins, this will ensure the texture of your cookies is spot on. 
  • A large cookie scoop is ideal for creating uniform cookies, but you can certainly use a tablespoon and heap onto your cookie tray. Make sure to give the cookies enough room, for most cookie recipes we only bake one sheet pan at a time with 6 cookies that allows for plenty of room for cookies to bake uniformly. 
  • Sprinkle with a touch of sea salt for added pop and depth of flavor. We love Fleur de sel, due to it’s thin and delicate crust. But, certainly kosher sea salt will work well too. Don’t use table salt!! 
  • Remove from the oven about 1-2 minutes before fully cooked. Your cookies will finish cooking after being pulled from the oven to rest.
