Chocolate chip cookies are one of those classic treats that every baker should try and master even though they can be difficult for some. Here are a few simple but useful tricks for making the perfect batch of chocolate chip cookies.

Don’t Overmix The Dough

If your chocolate chip cookies always turn out flat, that’s probably because you’re overmixing the dough. This is a common beginner mistake that can easily be avoided if you want the cookies to be fluffy.

Chill The Dough

If you don’t chill the dough, chances are that your cookies will spread in the oven, and you certainly don’t want that to happen. For that reason, it’s always best to leave the cookie dough in the fridge for at least half an hour, or even for 24 hours.

Measure The Flour Correctly

Using too much flour will likely result in cookies that are too dry and tough, so always make sure to measure the flour correctly by using a kitchen scale.

Add Brown Sugar

Adding more brown sugar than white will help you prepare delicious chocolate chip cookies with a slight caramel flavor.

Sprinkle Some Salt

It’s a well-known fact that adding just a dash of salt to sweets is an awesome trick to bring out the rich chocolate flavor, so make sure to sprinkle the cookies with some salt.
