How do you guarantee a chewy, gooey center with a vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe? Here are my top tips:
Tip #1: It’s super-important to cream the butter and sugar together properly. They should be very light and fluffy when combined, which helps to introduce air bubbles to the dough, which lighten the cookie texture, keeping it gooey inside.
Tip #2: Use a blend of light brown sugar and superfine caster sugar. The molasses in the brown sugar adds extra flavor and guarantees a softer, gooier bake.
Tip #3: Finally, all good chocolate chip cookies should look slightly underbaked when removed from the oven. They’ll continue to bake slightly on the baking tray as they cool, but definitely won’t over-bake like they would in the oven!
