Chocolate chip cookies are one of my kids favorite snack .Although I make them quite often , I always wanted to get that perfect bakery style consistency .Finally ,I was very happy with how this awesome recipe turned out .This is going to be my new go to recipe to impress my loved ones and guests ,for the perfect delicious chocolate chip cookie .I also added walnuts for that extra bite in it .
Some of the tips and tricks I learnt in the process of finding the recipe,is to get all the ingredients to room temperature, especially the eggs and butter .The butter should be so soft that, if one presses it against a finger ,it easily dents .However make sure that it is not completely melted. The other interesting fact, is to chill the dough in the refrigerator for about 24 to 72 hours before baking .The dough sitting in the fridge helps marinate the ingredients and somehow improves the flavors of the cookie.Of course , if you are short on time ,you can bake right away too. The chilling however definitely enhances the taste .This recipe also uses more brown sugar than white, which makes it even more flavorful and bakery like. Also remember as always not to over bake the cookies, and to take them out of the oven when it is almost done but not fully done .It is okay if it is not fully cooked in the center .It continues cooking when the cookies are cooling on the baking pan and later on the cooling rack.
Last but not the least wanted to share a great news.
