If you’re one of those people in search of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes this is one you must try. Not only is the texture amazing, but these cookies are also chock full of chocolate chips.
You may think all chocolate chip cookie recipes are the same. Yeah, I used to think so too. But I was wrong!
My go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe was always the Nestle Toll House recipe. I’ve always felt my results were inconsistent. Then it got to a point where my family was asking to try other recipes.
So my kids and I started looking around and tried a few that were good but this one is definitely standing out.
When you read through the recipe you’ll see an unusual ingredient. White vinegar isn’t usually in cookie recipes.
But vinegar is sometimes used in baking. My chocolate chip chocolate muffins have red wine vinegar in the recipe.
Why do you use vinegar in baking?
The vinegar reacts with the baking soda to produce carbon dioxide which gives the cookies a better rise, or fluff, as my son likes to say. You can’t taste it at all, trust me. My kids wouldn’t eat them if you could.Is the cookie jar empty? Pour a glass of cold milk and enjoy these chocolate chip cookies. #fillthecookiejar #chocolatechipcookies
You may think these cookies are more cake-like. We didn’t think so. They are crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside.
My teenage boys actually made this batch of cookies and they asked if they could be big. Why not? So they used my #40 scoop. They weren’t too big basically because they didn’t spread much.
