Recipe tips and tricks

  • Don’t melt the butter, make sure to soften at room temperature.
  • Be sure to to over mix the dough. This can cause them not to rise when baking.
  • Use parchment paper to line cookie sheets.
  • If you like extra chocolate chips, remove the cookies from the oven about 1 minute before being done. Carefully push a few extra chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies and then finish baking.
  • These cookies take about 10 minutes to cook. You will know they are done when the edges start to turn golden brown. They will set up and harden as they cool down.
