Cookie dough refers to an un-cooked blend of cookie ingredients. Dessert products containing cookie dough include ice cream and candy. In addition, pre-made cookie dough is sold in different flavors. When made at home, common ingredients include flour, butter, white sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and eggs.
Underbaked cookies are the secret to softness. Using cornstarch in the dough is another secret to softness, as well as the secret to thickness. Using more brown sugar than white sugar results in a moister, softer cookie. Adding an extra egg yolk increases chewiness.

Does Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough ice cream actually contain real cookie dough? Ice cream cookie dough tends to contain no leavening ( it’s unnecessary if you’re eating the dough straight), the flour is given a heat treatment to make it safe to eat straight, and the eggs are, of course, pasteurized.
Bake at 375 degrees F until golden and tender, 12 to 15 minutes. For crispy-cakey cookies: Bake the cookies at 425 degrees F until golden and crunchy on the outside, 8 to 10 minutes. For chewy cookies: Use 1 cup light brown sugar and 1/4 cup corn syrup and omit the granulated sugar.
Overworking the dough. The more you mix and work the dough after adding the flour, the more gluten is formed, which can result in cookies that are tough and hard.
Using lower-moisture sugar (granulated) and fat (vegetable shortening), plus a longer, slower bake than normal, produces light, crunchy cookies. That said, using a combination of butter and vegetable shortening (as in the original recipe ), or even using all butter, will make an acceptably crunchy chocolate chip cookie.

What can I use if I don’t have an electric mixer?
Hand Mixer Substitute You can cut in butter with a pastry cutter or with forks if you don’t have a mixer or food processor to break up the cold fat into the dry ingredients. You can also use two table knives to cross-cut into the ice-cold butter and flour mix.
Cookie dough can be mixed by hand or with an electric mixer. Butter or margarine that is too soft or melted will change the texture of the cookie and should not be used. Over-softened butter or margarine is the number one reason why cookies spread or become too flat.
To beat batter, the easiest way is to pick the bowl up and hold it under your arm against your waist at a 15- or 20-degree angle (don’t want to tilt it so much that food spills out as you beat it). Use your spoon and make quick circles in the batter, incorporating air into the mix.
