If there’s one thing that unites people from all religions, cultures and backgrounds, it’s a good choc-chip cookie and food scientist and author, Tessa Arias has put together a helpful infographic to show what ingredients you need to make the perfect cookie.
Taking it one step further, we’ve listened to a TEDx talk on the science of cookies and have put together ten tips to creating the ultimate choc-chip cookie. #WifeyGoals!

1. To make them gooeyer, add a cup or two of extra flour.
2. For a cookie that’s crispy on the outside and soft in the middle, use 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.
3. For a golden finish, set the oven slightly higher than what the recipe calls for.
4. To make it chewier, use all-purpose flour.
5. For a cookie that tastes like one from the shops (or Subway), substitute butter for shortening.
6. For a thick and less crispy cookie, freeze the cookie dough for an hour before baking. This freezes the butter and will make it spread less while it’s baking.
7. For a cakey-er cookie, add some extra baking soda.
8. To make your cookies have a caramel taste, use brown sugar instead of granulated or caster sugar.
9. If your baking for friends and want the cookies to look profession, add some corn syrup and granulated sugar.
10. Popping the cookie dough in the fridge overnight before baking will intensify the flavours!
