key ingredients in a soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie
- Flour - The secret in these soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies is bread flour rather than all purpose flour. Bread flour has more gluten, which will result in a chewier cookie.
- Egg Yolk Only - Egg whites can dry out batter.
- Brown Sugar - There is a higher ratio of brown sugar to white sugar. The brown sugar keeps the cookie chewy because of the molasses in the sugar and it’s ability to draw moisture from the air.
