How do i obtain soft and chewy cookies?? Any recipies to recommend?
Joy of cooking is awesome for cookie recipes.
Cream your butter well. Add your flower slowly. Rest your dough in the refrigerator for at least an hour before baking.
Make sure to turn your cookies half way through baking if your oven does not heat evenly.
Never over bake. Cookies will look too soft to man-handle when you take them out. THATS OK. They just need to cool and allot of that moisture is going to disappear. Don't be scared if what you see in the oven when your timer goes off, doesn't look like your idea of the final product.
I will look for my recipe for a soft choco chip cookie
I remember Alton Brown did a cookie episode that included several chocolate chip cookies recipes with different textures. This is the chewy one: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/the-chewy-recipe/index.html
I haven't tried it as I love one of the other recipes, the Thin: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/the-thin-recipe/index.html
There's also a Puffy recipe from that episode.
I made that recipe earlier in the week.
They were very good. I went back to the store and picked up stuff to make butterscotch and m&m versions for my nerd friends. I guessed and used a 1/4 cup measuring cup for a scoop. 9 minutes each batch of 6 @ 375 in my oven. 3 batches. They came out...Big at that measure. 18 cookies. The people at work scarfed em down and wanted more. I want to make another batch with some instant espresso tossed in for the coffee-philes.
That show on cookies (AB) was great!
Good tips to help to choose cakey vs chewy recipe.
could you be kind enough to give your recipe on this? Plssss!! Thanks
