This is a recipe I’ve tried at home and truly enjoyed!. What’s amazing about this recipe is the way it shows you different renditions of chocolate cookies. Turns out, it all boils down to the type of sugar your choose to use. In case you’d like your cookies on the gooey goodness side, try using a mix of dark brown sugar with refined white sugar. Basically the molasses in the brown sugar is what promotes the gooey softness. in case you like your cookie crubly, use refined white sugar.


Also, another tip to keep in mind, never measure your flour by cups. As there tend to be differences in Cup-measurements, following a random online recipe will prove disastrous. Instead, go by weight.

Bread Flour: 1 cup(125 gms)
All-purpose flour: 3/4th Cup (95 gms)
Table Salt: 1.5 teaspoons
Baking Soda: 1 teaspoon
Unsalted butter : 1 cup or 2 sticks (225 gms) , you can use salted butter in case you like a good amount of salt in your cookies.
