How To Make Chocolate Chip Cookies That Are Fluffy.

I have made many chocolate chip cookie recipes in my time. My last batch of chocolate chip cookies came out flat. I did some research to see what I can do to make them fluffy and creamy. In a Betty Crocker forum there was some great pointers that really helped me. I found out that using cold butter instead of letting the butter sit outside in room temperature can cause a flat cookie.

Step 1

In a bowl combine the all purpose flour baking soda and salt.

Step 2.

In a separate bow blend the (room temperature) butter, eggs both sugars and vanilla until very creamy.

Step 3:

Mix both the flour and butter mixture together. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Step 4:

Cover the cookie dough and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Step 5:

Take the dough out of the refrigerator and roll out 1 1/2 tablespoon into a tall ball onto the cookie sheet. Make sure the cookies are 3 inches apart. This is a thick cookie so it will need space to bake. You should be able to make 12 cookies.

Bake for 10 minutes or less. It's very important not to over cook these.

These are the best fluffy chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. I hope you will agree.

    your instructions say “pepper” Also ingredients don’t match with the instructions. Ingredients say baking soda, but instructions say baking powder. 😊
