It seems as though everyone else has better tasting chocolate chip cookies then me. Mine always turn out like pancakes with little lumps of chocolate chips here and there. I hate it. So for years now, every time I see a chocolate chip cookie I like, I ask how they make it. Here are my 3 tips that I have gathered from many different domestic bakers that have helped me to perfect the old fashioned chocolate chip cookie recipe.
1. Use real butter, not margarine - margarine melts at a lower temperature. This is why my little boogers would flatten like pancakes.
2. Use more white sugar then brown - not too sure why on this one!
3. Add more flour then the recipe calls for - This is cause the chocolate chips cookies to keep a round and raised look.
