Tips for Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Use room temperature butter for easier mixing and a better texture.
  • Make sure you are using fresh baking soda. 
  • Don’t overmix the dough. Mix just until all the ingredients are incorporated.
  • Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes before baking for better texture and flavor.
  • Use parchment paper to line your baking sheets to prevent sticking and ensure even baking.
  • Experiment with different types of chocolate chips, such as dark or milk chocolate, for a different flavor.

What To Do with Leftover Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are several creative ways to use leftover chocolate chip cookies, including:

These are just a few ideas, but the possibilities are endless!

Can I make the cookie dough ahead of time and freeze it?

Absolutely! I am always in awe of people who freeze dough. I feel like these kinds of people must have their lives together. So much so, that they can plan ahead for when they want some cookies to make their lives easier. 
Here’s how to do it: 
Scoop out your cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put them in the freezer. When they are done freezing, put them into a freezer safe ziplock bag until you are ready to bake. 

Can I use a different type of chocolate chips, such as white chocolate or milk chocolate chips?

Yes, you can definitely experiment with different types of chocolate chips to customize the flavor of your cookies. You can try using white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, or a combination of different types of chips.

Keep in mind that different types of chocolate may have different melting points, so be sure to adjust your baking time and temperature accordingly. Also, using different types of chocolate may affect the sweetness and texture of your cookies, so you may need to adjust the amount of sugar or flour in the recipe to achieve the desired results.

Can I substitute the Gold Medal All-Purpose Flour with another type of flour?

It’s possible to substitute all-purpose flour with another flour brand, but it may affect the texture and flavor of the cookies. 

How many cookies does this recipe make?

The gold medal chocolate chip cookies recipe makes approximately 36 cookies, depending on the size of the dough balls.
