OPINION: Rating 3 Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes

Lin Meyers, Review

Recipe 1

This chocolate chip cookie recipe was very simple and easy to follow. The cookie dough was not sticky when making the shape. As seen below, the shape of the cookies held well and do not look wet.

The cookies are baked for 12 minutes. I rotated the cookie tray at the 5-minute mark. The final product was different from what I imagined. They came out looking like scones.

From this close-up shot, the cookies did not spread out and stayed in place.

The cookies look like scones, but taste like cookies! This cookie is very similar to the chocolate chip cookies found at The Cookie Corner. It was not too sweet and had the right amount of chocolate per bite. The visual was the only downside. 

 Recipe Two

This recipe was the famous Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. The directions were simple and easy to understand. The process of making the dough was straightforward, but when making the cookies the dough stuck to my hands.

From this picture, the shape is not as clean as Recipe 1. The cookie dough melted in my hands which made it difficult to shape into balls.

These cookies spread out and appear crunchy in this picture. I baked these cookies for 10 minutes and rotated the cookie tray at the 5-minute mark.

Final Result:

The cookies were crunchy and tasted a bit too sweet due to the chocolate plus the amount of sugar added. The process of making and rolling out the cookies was time-consuming because the cookie dough kept sticking to my hands. I had to work fast to make sure the cookie balls were evenly spaced. 

 Recipe 3

This recipe is the only one with the dough needing time to chill – approximately 40 minutes in the refrigerator. The process of making the dough was easy and clean. When I rolled the dough it did not stick to my hands and held its shape.

The color here is darker than the other cookie doughs. I baked these cookies for 14 minutes.

These cookies spread out a lot more than the other recipes. The instructions called for a bigger-sized ball of dough. I did not expect it to spread so much. 

Final Result:

This was the best of the three cookies. It was crunchy on the edges and soft in the middle. These cookies were a huge hit with my family of testers.
