Chocolate chip cookies come in many forms. Soft and chewy or golden brown and crisp … everyone has a favorite. Our recipe can be baked in the Wolf Gourmet oven with or without convection to yield different results, depending on your preference.
Before we get started making cookies, let’s review. What exactly is convection? With the convection setting, a powerful fan with high-volume airflow vents thoroughly circulates heated air for even baking with no hot spots. Convection can be used in tandem with Bake mode with a press of the button to reduce cooking time by up to twenty-five percent.
So, how does this affect your chocolate chip cookies? Baking with convection yields a rounded, taller cookie with a crisp exterior. Even heat created by the air circulating in convection yields the irresistible combination of crunchy and gooey – and some say it’s the secret to the perfect cookie. But, if you prefer a softer, chewy cookie, use Bake mode without convection. It gives the cookies more spread because they bake a bit more slowly and it maintains the soft texture many people crave.
Whichever kind of chocolate chip cookie you enjoy, this recipe will satisfy your sweet tooth. Using dark brown sugar gives a slightly more complex flavor and you may taste more of a caramel note. Dark or bittersweet chocolate chips are definitely worth seeking out at the store.
