A collection of soft, thick and chewy cookie recipes from The Pinning Mama.
It all started with the search for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. I kind of love cookies and admittedly, it was an obsession. Thin cookies just weren’t my thing. When I went to bakeries I could get nice thick, rich, chewy cookies but at home it seemed that my cookies would go flat or just wouldn’t be big, thick and perfect like the ones I found in the bakery.
As with many crazy adventures I have done before, it all started with, “Well, if it can be done, then I am going to do it.” And the research began. I scoured the internet. I watched documentaries (Alton Brown’s cookie episode was one of my favorites) and read books! Most importantly, I made about 3.2 million batches of cookies.
I altered ingredients.
I tried different measurements.
I probably consumed a billion pounds of butter. Good thing I love butter.
And in the end I did it. A recipe for cookies that were always THICK. Always chewy. Always delicious.
Although, as with most things, there is more than one way to skin a cat. I found a few different ways to make the cookie turn out thicker. The way that I found to be most fool proof though was upping the ratio on the flour content. It does make a bit more dense cookie, but for me, when cooked to perfection, these cookies are THE BEST COOKIE on the planet.
It all started with the perfect Thick & Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie, and since then, I have been working my way through each of my favorites, experimenting and modifying until I get it just right. Then of course, I share it here with YOU!
