Make chocolate chip cookies exactly how you like them with these tips from Food Network Magazine:

  • Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies (pictured above) bake longer than the average cookie so they end up brown all over, not just around the edges.
  • Superfine sugar makes for a fine crumb and crisp texture.
  • Vegetable oil helps the batter spread so the cookies come out extra thin.

  • The high proportion of brown sugar keeps Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies moist in the middle.
  • Sifting the dry ingredients incorporates air into the batter and helps make the cookies soft.
  • Chilling the dough prevents it from spreading too much in the oven.

  • A high oven temperature makes Crispy-Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies crisp around the edges.
  • The middle stays thick and cakey because the baking time is so short.
  • Getting this texture is easier if you use smaller-sized mounds of dough.

cakey chocolate chip cookies

  • There’s more flour than usual, plus baking powder and baking soda, so Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies end up thick and scone-like.
  • Cake flour and cornstarch give these cookies their cakey texture.
  • The butter in this recipe is only lightly beaten, which helps the cookies puff up.

    I live in Valdez, Alaska and I am a senior this year. I had bought this issue the other day after my friend shone me it especially, when she had showed me the artical about, “be a good cookie.” We had talked about it and also with our Culinary Arts teacher and we are going to take, “Be a Good Cookie” to an different level. Sometime at the end of Apirl we are going to do a “Date Night” as we call. we will sell the tickets, do a dinner, movie, and then at the end of the night sell our baked goods cookies, cream puffs, cakes etc… This artical has inspired us and we think that all schools should do this!

    I made the "Chewy" recipe over the weekend with help from my 4-year-old. They turned out fantastic (slightly flatter than I thought they would be but the texture was spot on)! It was fun to read what makes the variations different and why. Awesome article and delicious cookies!
