What Makes This Recipe Special? A few things make this recipe unique: giving these chocolate chip cookies a fudgy texture and excellent chew. The use of brown sugar is the first factor. Brown sugar gives them a caramel note. The molasses in brown sugar absorbs moisture from the air, helping keep the cookies moist. We slightly melt the butter. This step adds to the caramel-like texture as well. We also add the vanilla in the early stages of mixing; this allows the fat to absorb the flavor fully and enhances the cookies’ vanilla’s richness.
The type of flour you use is also significant. The protein content of Panhandle Milling’s Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour is ideal for cookies and pastries. The flour gives cookies just the right amount of body and holding power without being tough.
