Finally nailed the perfect Choc chip cookie recipe!

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Every CCC recipe I ever tried was always way to crisp and hard once the cookie totally cooled. I tried all the "tips" but always the same result. If I added too much egg the dough was always too thin add more flour to adjust that then they got hard or weren't sweet enough. I must have tried about a 1000 different CCC recipes over the years and always disappointed once the cookies cooled completely. I don't like crispy cookies, I like a chewy soft cookie.

So I tweeked the recipe on the back of the Hershey's Semisweet CC bag in the following manner...

It calls for 3/4 cups equally of lt. brown sugar and granulated sugar. I changed it to 1/2 cup lt. brown sugar, 1/2 cup dk. brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup light corn syrup. Everything else the same as listed for regular CCC, and substituted 1/4 cup of the flour for cocoa powder in the double chocolate choc. chip recipe. I baked them only for 12 minutes and let them sit on the hot cookie sheet for 5 minutes after removing from the oven. THEY WERE PERFECT! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks for sharing - I have never found a chocolate chip cookie recipe I liked (for the same reasons you stated), so I can't wait to try this one!!

Cool thanks! I love the Nestle recipe and I bake on stones not cookie sheets. Since I made that change my cookies are always soft and chewy just as we like them.

I was in the same boat- and finally found a recipe that i loved also!! It calls for oil instead of butter, i think that makes a HUGE difference! I can go find my recipe if anyone wants it, i got it online somewhere.....

Darn you! I want cookies now, and i was doing so well on my diet! icon_razz.gif

I have found that the Mary's #1 So Admit it Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe on this website are very good. They are large and flat, but not too hard so as to be difficult to eat after a day. Anyway, is there such a thing as a BAD Chocolate Chip Cookie??? icon_lol.gif

That's great. I'm pretty happy with mine too, but i'd still like for them to be thicker and chewier. Havent been successful with that.

I use a recipe that calls for 1 cup of melted butter, cooled. Also, it's the brown sugar that makes a cookie chewy. I think mine turn out wonderful.

Do share..I strongly believe you can never have to many CCC recipes!

Congrats on your recipe success, I depend on you all for my cookie knowledge icon_wink.gif

I was lucky enough to be in a discussion about the quest for CCC perfection a while back. Alton Brown did a show called "Three Chips for Sister Marsha" where he of course goes over all of the science behind, puffy, chewy and thin varieties. I swear by his 3 recipes now! Here are the Recipes and a link to the show transcript (which I read because I missed the actual show, and I'm a dork) Anyhow the cookie names tell you the results to expect and they work! I just adore Alton icon_smile.gif
