These recipes are too good not to share, and that’s what inspired us to start collecting them. So we’re getting back pocket recipes from our favorite chefs, influencers, cookbook authors and OXOnians, so you too can have a back pocket recipe to rely on.
Tessa Arias of Handle the Heat(Opens in a new window) knows a thing or two about baking, and that’s why we weren’t surprised when her back-pocket recipe was for the perfect bakery-style chocolate chip cookies.
The key to perfectly thick bakery-style chocolate chip cookies is to make sure nothing is too warm. The butter should be at a cool room temperature (about 67°F) when you make the dough. The colder the dough, the thicker your cookies will be. Once you shape the dough with your cookie scoop, try freezing the dough while your oven preheats to create extra thickness!
