Recipe Notes For Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Flat Cookies– Flat cookies make me sad, so I set out to answer the common question: ‘Why are my chocolate chip cookies flat?’ I’ve done a lot of research on how to make chocolate chip cookies that don’t go flat. The main tips for how to make thick chocolate chip cookies include:
Chill the dough – Put it in the fridge overnight if you can but even an hour or two ahead of time will help.
Use butter – The flavor of butter is the boss in baking. While margarine will create a thicker, softer cookie.
Use enough flour – Every batch of cookies is slightly different. You want just enough flour to make the dough start to pull away from the sides of the mixing bowl. As you’re getting close to the right consistency, check it a spoonful at a time to get it just right.
Hot pans – Make sure your cookie sheet is cool before you spoon your cookies onto it. If it’s warm, the cookie will start to cook and melt before it goes in the oven.
The Butter Dilemma – When choosing salted or unsalted butter for chocolate chip cookies, you will find supporting evidence for both sides. Salted butter has a higher moisture content that can affect the texture and rise of your cookies, but some bakers swear by it. I typically use unsalted, but either will work. If you’re using salted, decrease the salt by ¼ tsp.
Baking – The last crucial component in how to bake chocolate chip cookies is the time in the oven. The longer they cook, the crispier cookies get. Watch for the edges to get brown and scattered browning on top.

How Do You Freeze Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
