I love to make cookies but I've often complained that mine never look as good as those in the stores. This is purely a presentation tip, if your chocolate chip cookies don't turn out I'm no help. And I'm still on the quest to find that "perfect" chocolate chip cookie recipe. The ones I photographed were made with vanilla pudding as the secret ingredient.
Now onto the tip. When making your dough, don't add in all the chocolate chips, save some for adding to the top. Once you've placed the dough balls on the cookie sheets, then add some of the extra chocolate chips to the top of the cookies, pressing lightly to secure in place. Here are the dough balls before.
And after. They already look better, right?
And here's my cutie-pie helper. He HAS to watch the cookies as they bake.
The final product. I did one pan with the extra chips and one without to convince you that the cookies look better this way.
