Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re already itching to make these cookies – and I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t be – you probably have some questions about them. Luckily for you, this FAQ covers all the major questions about these delicious cookies.
What Are The Best White Chocolate Chips To Use?
Go with the highest-quality white chocolate chips that you can find. Low-grade brands often use fillers and just don’t taste as good. The overall winner among all major test kitchens, however, is Ghirardelli Classic White Chips.
Why Do You Need Brown and White Sugar In Cookies?
Both sugars do different things as they cook. White sugar makes cookies browner and crispier, while brown sugar makes cookies moister and chewier. So combining the two creates a balance for the perfect cookie texture.
What is The Secret to Soft Cookies?
The biggest secret to soft cookies is not baking them for too long. The longer cookies are baked, the crispier they get. So if you want soft cookies, bake your cookie until they’re just done. In addition, using more brown sugar than white sugar results in a moister, softer cookie. I also will add a teaspoon or tablespoon of corn syrup to my batter and a little more flour and that will give you soft, thicker cookies.
Why Won’t My Chocolate Chips Melt?
They’re not supposed to, at least not in the context of cookies. Chocolate chips are made to retain their shape. They have less cocoa butter than chocolate that melts more easily like baking or melting chocolate. The idea of chocolate chips is that they get soft but retain their chocolate chip shape when baked in a cookie.
Can I Freeze These Cookies?
Absolutely! These cookies can be frozen for up to three months.
The thing about cookies is that so many other ingredients can be added to change up the flavor resulting in a new recipe.
- Different types of nuts – Walnuts, pecans, and almonds, are all excellent choices and give a little crunch to every bite:
- Baking chips – With all the different types of baking chips available, the flavors are endless.
- Chocolate chunks and white chocolate chunks are a delicious addition to add to your cookie recipeas well.

When storing these or any cookies, always ensure that they are as free from air as possible so that they stay moist and delicious.
