Can Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies be Frozen?
Yes. Place the completely cooled cookies in a zipper topped bag and place them in the freezer for later. Place them on the counter for about 30 minutes to thaw to room temperature before eating. For more tips on freezing cookies and cookie dough, check out this post!
Why Cookies Turn Out Flat
While this is the perfect soft chocolate chip cookie recipe, there are a few common factors that lead to flat chocolate chip cookies, so I’m going to quickly list them out in hopes that we can avoid any issue before it happens.
The most common reason for cookies to fall flat has to do with the temperature of the oven and the butter.
- Warm butter. The colder the butter, the longer it takes to melt, helping the cookie to retain its shape better. Warm butter will melt faster, and give you a flatter cookie.
- Hot oven. If your oven is too hot, it will melt the butter too quickly, and cause similar effects. So remember that when making chocolate chip cookies, to have chilled and cold butter in use and to have your oven preheated to the correct temperature.
- Leavening agent. The ratio of leavening agent to flour will impact how fluffy or flat your chocolate chip cookies are. I like to use a mix of baking powder and baking soda to give the cookie the perfect amount of fluff.
Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
This cookie recipe may just be the best one you’ll ever use. Everyone loves a thick and chewy chocolate chip cookie. This jumbo cookie recipe comes out tall, fluffy, and perfect every time thanks to the added cornstarch (our not-so-secret ingredient).
While you can safely store cookies in a tightly sealed cookie jar or a zipper topped bag on your counter for several days, freezing them for longer storage is also a great solution!
Overworking your dough can make chocolate chip cookies hard. When mixing cookie dough you want to make sure that the dough hasn’t been overly mixed once the flour has been added. If you overbake your cookies, they will also be hard.
Chocolate chip cookies always look a little underbaked when they are ready to pull from the oven. You will notice the edges looking golden and set. The tops should be soft but no longer glossy. If the tops are still glossy looking, let them bake another minute or two. If the tops look dull but puffed, remove from the oven.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for several minutes as they deflate and solidify. Moving the cookies too soon after removing them from the oven can cause them to break during transport.
