3. Now add dry ingredients, milk and mix gently until everything incorporates well. Finally add choco chips and gently fold again. The dough looks little sticky now, but if it’s too sticky add very little APF (don’t add more or the cookies turn dense). chocolate-chip-cookies-steps34. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, this step is the important step to get cracked texture on top (it can be baked immediately also). Line the baking tray with a parchment paper / butter paper. Then make equal sized balls from the dough and place it on the butter paper. Don’t place it very close as the cookies expand in size slightly else it will stick to each other.chocolate-chip-cookies-steps45. Press the dough with your fingers very gently, either thick or thin as per preference. Pre-heat oven at 180c for 10 minutes. Now place the cookies in the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 180c till golden colour. Keep an eye on the cookies after 10 minutes.

FAQ

1. At what texture the dough should be ?
The dough for this choco chip cookies recipe should not be too sticky or too dry. If the dough is too sticky, add little APF to the dough, if added more the cookies turn dense and taste different. If the dough turns dry just sprinkle little milk and knead again.

If you knead the dough very tightly and bake for more than the mentioned time it turns hard. Also it turns bitter and smell burnt.

3. What is the correct baking time and temperature?
a. Baking time and temperature varies from oven to oven. If using microwave oven, use convection mode and bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 180c.
b. The baking time will be almost the same for OTG. Place the wire rack in the center and make sure that the bottom rod alone is heated, that’s the bake mode.
