updated February 28, 2010 The recipe on the back of the Nestle Toll House Morsels [tm] bag makes fine cookies, and if you were to follow it precisely, you couldn't go too far wrong. However, based upon my own experience and that of others, I advise a few minor modifications and refinements. First, always use real butter.
Let’s face it: Almost all chocolate chip cookies are chewy when warm out of the oven. But how do you preserve that texture even when the cookies are cool? After lots of testing (no complaints here), we found three keys to the perfect texture and lasting chew: melted—not just softened—butter; extra fat, which we got from an extra yolk; and cooking time, which is less than you’d think. With these few simple tweaks, we had chocolate chip cookies with rich chocolate flavor and a whole lot of tenderness and chew. Now that’s the taste of sweet success.
