I've found zillions of chewy cookies that taste great but they're always cakey, I want a gooey chewy cookie
I've tried pudding mix, cornstarch, cream cheese, everything
I reduce the amount of flour by about 1/4 cup or so when I want them less cakey.
I don't know what kind of cookies you want but the Redpath chocolate chip cookie recipe is the one I use all the time. They are delicious and chewy and I always get rave reviews.
On the ones that I have tried that seem to puff up instead of spreading. I always test one cookie and see how it turns out then I adjust the ingredients in the recipe. The only cakey cookies I like are Madeleines
AI use bread flour. Switch out the regular flour, ounce for ounce.
I'm confused. If you're able to test one cookie, then the dough is already mixed. How do you then adjust the ingredients after this testing?
By adding a little more dark brown sugar into the mixture. Don't mean to confuse anyone, when you say chewy gooey cookies, I atomatically think of chocolate chip cookies. Did you say chocolate chip beach and sweets? No? My bad.
Wow thank you for all the responses!!
