Tip Sheet

Best chocolate chip cookie recipe - Use a good quality brand of unsalted butter, not cheap shortening or butter flavored vegetable shortening. You will notice a big difference in both the flavor and in the texture or "mouthfeel".

The excellent food science book with recipes, 'Cookwise' by Shirley Corriher goes over the science of making the best cookies and confirms much of what you say Marketing Guy :). Yummy! I must avoid gluten, but I love baking

Best chocolate chip cookie recipe - use real vanilla extract. "Madagascar-bourbon" is the superior variety, with a deeper, smoother taste and more fragrance. "Imitation vanilla" is made from wood, not vanilla beans, and has a harsher, chemical taste.

Best chocolate chip cookie recipe - professional bakers use a secret ingredient to give the top of their cookies that cracked appearance. It's cream of tartar. Doesn't affect the flavor, but makes cookies look more appetizing.

Best chocolate chip cookie recipe - substitute a gourmet chocolate bar, broken up into pieces, for your usual chocolate chips. Dark chocolate works best, around 50-60% cocoa solids. Yummy!

You are making me hungry just talking about it. My favorite chocolate chip cookie is a peanut butter cookie with Chocolate Chips. I call it a Reeses Cookie, PB and Chocolate, the ulitmate match.

You need a good cookie sheet to make soft or crispy cookies. Stainless works wonderful for this. Chocolate chip, peanut butter or snickerdoodles.
