I'm struggle with making my cookies spread out so I can have thin and chewy cookies. I've tried almost every possible solution but one thing that I can't get my head around is when mixing ingredient together.
I've often heard of the term "don't over mix your dough" but when exactly do I have to be aware of it?
- mixing butter and sugar: in this case I used melted butter
- beat egg with butter + sugar
- mixing dry and wet ingredients.
According to this video, butter and sugar should be mixed roughly. But when I try it, my cookie dough come out all greasy, shiny and has a really dark brown color. You can even hand pick and roll it into a ball (not sticky at all)! What would happened if I over mix in each of those steps above?
