Let's talk about Chocolate Chip Cookies....

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you like them soft and chewy or with a crunch? Do you make them homemade or prefer the premade dough from the store? If you make them homemade do you want to share your recipe? If you use premade dough what is your favorite brand?

Even better when you don't have to do the baking, lol.

Quoting hugss:

They are & I have a friend/neighbor that *sometimes* shares with me :)

Quoting psych_mom:

They are best right out of the oven.

I like them soft and chewy.  As many times as I have tried to make them homemade..  I think I've finally learned my lesson.  I like Pillsbury Chocolate Chunk cookie dough.

If you want them soft and chewy then you take them out a minute or two early. Also use dark brown sugar.

I didn't know about the dark brown sugar but I do take them out a minute of two early.  My problem with making them home made is they always spread out and then bake up fluffy like a cake even if I follow the recipe to a T.  SMH lol

Sounds like your stove temp may be off. Maybe cook them at little lower temp and try that.

You're probably right about that..  our oven is currently out so that might have been the problem.  I haven't worried about it much because it was summer and we don't use the oven in the summertime.  But now it's fall and I want to bake!!  ::pouts::  LOL

Soft and gooey. Homemade and I follow the directions on the bag of Nestle semi sweet morsels. With ice old milk.


me too, with the addition of walnuts, I love walnuts in my chocolate chip cookies! Though I've found if I really have a chocolate chip cookie craving and either don't have all the ingredients or the time, Betty Crocker chocolate chip walnut cookies mix in the bag is good. Much better than the refrigerated cookie dough, you can make them soft and gooey like a homemade cookie.

i won't lie, once your used to homemade it's hard to have anything else! But they are much better than that cookie roll! And they don't turn out crunchy or chewy like the roll does. I hope you like them, it's good to have a substitute to keep handy!
