FAQs about gluten free chocolate chip mocha cookies

How do I make my cookies chewy?

If you like chocolate chip cookies more chewy than crispy, replace one egg with two egg yolks. Egg yolks have more fat which helps keep the cookies chewy and moist.

Does sugar affect cookie texture?

The type of sugar you use affects flavor and texture. For example, for a crispier cookie, use white sugar. For a chewier texture, use brown sugar. Brown sugar also adds more flavor.

Should I chill gluten free cookies before baking them?

Chilled cookies have a better texture, hold their shape better and have more flavor. Place shaped cookies on a baking sheet and refrigerate them for one hour before baking. 

How to chill cookies if you are short on time?

Can’t wait for the cookies to chill? No worries, place shaped cookies in the freezer for 15 minutes before baking.

Softened butter vs melted

Cookies made with melted butter spread more. So if you prefer a flat cookie, use melted butter. The flavor will not change.

Can too many chocolate chips make cookies flat?

Quite the opposite. Chocolate chips give the cookies structure and help keep cookies from going flat.
