 If you’d like to create slice and bake cookies, overturn the dough onto a piece of parchment paper. Gently shape it into log and the wrap tightly and freeze. The cookies can also be scooped and frozen on a baking sheet, then transferred to a ziploc bag.

Soft, Chewy Variation of Doubletree Hotel Chocolate Chip Cookies

What makes a cookie chewy or crisp is determined by the amount of moisture in the cookie. Using white sugar creates a crispier texture because the water evaporates faster. Egg yolks can increase the level of chewiness in cookies, as can the use of brown sugar. 

Also, increasing the oven temperature and reducing the baking time will yield a cookie that’s soft and chewy throughout. In the case of Doubletree hotel cookies we recommend increase the oven temperature to 375°F and shortening the baking time to exactly 11 minutes.
