The art of baking cookies surely has some science associated with it because there are so many elements like the temperature of the oven, the freshness of ingredients, consistency of the cookie dough etc. that are taken into consideration. But more than that, there are other factors like how accurately the ingredients are measured and proportion of each ingredient. By practising some easy and simple tips, it is very much possible to bake homemade cookies that taste just like store-bought ones. To begin with, remember always to use room temperature ingredients especially dairy and eggs. For example, eggs whisk much better when they are at room temperature rather than straight from the fridge. That is because eggs are a good binding ingredient. You can tell if the cookie dough has come well together or not depending on the temperature of eggs. Another important tip is to double sift the flour. Double sifting creates air in the flour that makes the cookies chewy and sift. Lastly, it is best to chill the dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or so before you bake them in the oven. Soft cookie dough will flatten the cookies while baking and make them harder instead of chewy. Always bake cookies on a parchment paper. The best way to judge if the cookies are done is when the center is still gooey and not stable. The cookies will keep baking even after you remove from the oven and the center will firm up once cooled.
As a healthier alternative in this recipe, you can replace the regular chocolate chips with bittersweet or even dark chocolate with at least 70 percent or more cacao in it. Dark chocolate is less processed and contains smaller amounts of sugar with maximum health benefits. Dark chocolate is an incredible source of antioxidants, improves cardiovascular health along with other essential nutrients like fiber and iron present in it? Here's a fun fact, July 7th is world chocolate day. It is a well celebrated worldwide event and popular among chocolate aficionados. Having said that we all know that chocolate lovers don't need a reason to eat more chocolate because truthfully, one can never eat enough chocolate.
