Tips and Techniques for chocolate fudge cookies

Use unsalted butter– Because salted butter makes cookies very salty.

Only baking soda is used in this recipe- Don’t replace it with baking powder.

Both, granulated and brown sugar are required for the perfect texture- Don’t replace one with the other.

Don’t over-mix cookie dough– Because that will make the cookies very tough.

Chill dough- This is only necessary on hot days when the dough is too sticky. Chill it for 30 minutes-1 hour to make it easier to handle and make balls.

Don’t over-bake- Because that will yield dry cookies.

Line the cookie tray– Use parchment paper to prevent cookies from sticking.

How do I know when the cookies are done? They are ready when edges are firm and center is only slightly jiggly.

  1. Hi, I have a question. Can I make these cookies up until the part where you put them in the freezer, then store them in the freezer? I’m looking for cookies I can make ahead then bake when I’m ready.

  2. Love this recipe, can’t wait to try it out 5 stars
