Since I got into baking (in 2009), I’ve been into a lot of “cookie” experiments (including three this summer). Some were from scratch, others were ready-dough. Yet, I never really got it right (I always got tough cookies). I tried asking for the secret, but you know how some bakers are, (
selfish, not so helpful). Anyhow, this summer, I finally got the deal. Everyone at home really loved them. (And I almost had half the cookie dough). Of course, I have to give credit to Lauren Vitale from Youtube for spilling out the secret.
The Two secrets of Irresistible Cookies:
- Do not over mix. Once you don’t see flour, stop. That’s it. Not one second more of mixing. I’m serious.
- Bake less than you think its done. It has to be very soft in the middle. (Poking with a toothpick doesn’t help telling if its ready). So just when the edges start to get golden/brownish, that’s it. Miraculously, the cooling does the rest of the baking (Wow, right?).
That’s it! It’s all yours to go try out. Enjoy!
