Cookies are delicious treats loved by everyone, but sometimes it can be difficult to find the perfect recipe for cookies that are both soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. Fans of this American biscuit will tell you that it is often necessary to do many tests before succeeding in finding the right result. Luckily, we have a foolproof tip for you. You will see, the gourmands will thank you.
To obtain this double texture that is both melting in the center and crispy on the edges, there is a little secret! Place the balls of dough in the fridge before baking them! Before putting them in the oven, we advise you to let them rest in the refrigerator or even in the freezer for about fifteen minutes. Bake them in the already hot oven and you’re done!
Use circles for a perfect shape: When forming the dough balls, use metal or plastic circles to give them an even shape. This ensures even baking, which means perfectly baked cookies every time.
Use an ice cream scoop for perfectly portioned cookies: Opt for an ice cream scoop to scoop out the batter and place them on the baking sheet. This will ensure evenly sized cookies and ensure even baking.
Prefer brown sugar or brown sugar: Replace the classic white sugar with brown sugar or brown sugar. These brown sugars bring a delicious caramel taste and a soft texture to your cookies.
Include almond or hazelnut powder: To add a touch of refinement and increase the softness of the cookies, mix almond or hazelnut powder into your dough. This will bring a subtle flavor of dried fruits and will make your cookies even tastier.
Cooking at low temperature (150°C): For soft cookies, cook at low temperature. This will allow for slower, gentler baking, which will prevent the cookies from hardening and becoming too crispy.
