Tips For Making The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Do not ever grease your cookie sheets.  Will make cookies spread and change texture.
  5. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie.
  6. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  7. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  8. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.

    These look great! When the snow has cleared I’m going to the store. Could you please tell me where you get your your instant vanilla pudding powder? Is it from a box of the pudding, or can it be found in bulk?

      Hi Cheryl, it’s found in the baking isle, usually right by the cake mixes. It is from a box, not sure if you can get it in bulk unless you check on Amazon.

    I’m from Canada and we don’t have sticks of butter, so what is the measurement, 1/2 -3/4 or 1 cup. Thanks, plan on giving these a try.

    These look fabulous!!! I was wondering if you used regular chocolate chips or mini. In the picture/video the chips look small. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

    Your video showed 1/2 the recipe but you used a full egg. I followed the recipe and they seemed dry/crumbly. Should I have used 1 more egg? Thanks
