Getting the right soft and chewy texture

Getting the ideal chewy cookie texture is all about using the right amount of ingredients and baking the cookies until they are just starting to turn golden on the edges. If you bake them for too long, the cookies become crispy (still absolutely delicious, though).
To make these cookies extra flavorful and soft, I use brown sugar. It locks in the moisture and adds extra depth of flavors.

Gluten free option

If you’re looking for a gluten free option there’s luckily a lot of choices these days. The easiest option would be to switch the all-purpose flour out with regular gluten free flour. Another possibility is to substitute the flour with half rice flour and half almond flour. Now, that does change the taste and texture a bit, but it still gives you a delicious cookie.

How are these cookies made? It couldn’t be more simple. Just:

  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Start by lining a baking sheet with baking parchment.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan and let it start to brown a little.
  • Pour the sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir in the melted butter. Set it aside for 3-5 minutes before quickly whisking in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Use a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop to scoop up the cookie dough (alternatively, you can use a tablespoon: 2 tbsp=1 medium cookie). If you want extra large cookies, you can add 1 tbsp extra cookie dough to each cookie.
  • Place the cookies on the baking sheet, making sure there’s at least 2 inches between each cookie. Bake the cookies in the middle of the oven for 7-10 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies just start to turn golden brown. Once the cookies are baked, take them out and leave them to cool on a wire rack.
