Chocolate Chips Cookies


After researching for quite some time, I guess I'd finally find a better way to make chocolate chips cookie. I had read a lot of recipes over blogs and cookbooks. I had watched loads of videos in making chocolate chips cookies over YouTube; some used a variety of different types of flour, some used brown butter and some used a singular type of sugar. This is what I end up with after quite a number of experiments.

As you can see, these cookies spread out more evenly as compared to my previous posts. I am still using my go-to cookie recipe with little tweets here and there. I used a combination of flour; all purpose and bread. I also browned my butter instead of using regular butter. I am still using my trio sugar, muscovado, granulated and molasses. I personally find that the combination adds depths of flavors and enhances the cookies during final baking process.

This is still far from perfect tho. I have yet to explore more different varieties of flour, especially rye flour. I learnt a neat little trick from some of the pros. Shave some more dark chocolate over the cookies as soon as they came outta oven. I love the texture of these cookies, crisp on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, without the heavy density. Don't get me wrong. The interior is still dense and fudgy, but too overly dense. I wish you can smell the wonderful aroma that's coming outta the oven when these cookies were being baked. And I hope you will give this recipe a try.
