Chocolate chip cookies sound basic, but baking them from scratch can be tricky. Even a tiny misstep can result in dried-out, crumbly, hard-as-rock cookies or, worst of all, cookies that are mushy and raw in the center yet somehow burnt to a crisp on the edges. Remi Hayashi Girouard, pastry chef and co-owner of Goody Goodie Cream & Sugar in San Francisco, has a few simple rules for how to bake chocolate chip cookies the right way, every time.
Whether you fry it on the stove, bake it in the oven, or “air-fry” it in your air-fryer, achieving a crispy, salty and tasty strip of bacon is always the goal. With the addition of brown sugar and chocolate, the bacon strip has reached perfection.
