Frequently Asked Questions

6 Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipes That Are Easy To Makes

Are Chocolate Chip Cookies Good For You?

They are as long as you don’t eat too many! Cookies contain useful nutrients like sugar and fat, but eat too many and you risk going over your daily limit! We recommend you limit yourself to only two cookies a day.

This way you can still enjoy a treat without overindulging. 

How Long Do Chocolate Chip Cookies Last?

Chocolate chip cookies can last up to 5-7 days after baking, so long as they are kept at room temperature. Store them in an airtight container to keep them fresher for longer.

You will notice when they start to go stale as they will become harder and brittle over time. 

Why Did My Chocolate Chip Cookies Turn Out Hard?

You may have over worked the dough, or made them too small so they cooked very quickly and burned.

To avoid this, we recommend you stop stirring your mixture once the dough resembles classic cookie dough and evenly scoop out your dough using a measuring instrument so all your cookies are the same size.

Try using a tablespoon, an ice cream scoop, or a measuring cup to evenly measure your cookies.  

What Else Can I Add To My Chocolate Chip Cookies?

The great thing about chocolate chip cookies is that you can add pretty much anything to them! Nuts, almonds, oats, more chocolate chips – whatever you desire to make the perfect treat!

And those are our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes. As you can see, they are really simple to follow, plus they do not take long to bake either.
