- Want to know what makes chocolate chip cookies even better? More butter, of course! The extra butter in these cookies makes them super tender. If that sounds like your style, go ahead and preheat your oven to 375°F. Since butter is the key ingredient in this recipe, here are a few tips to using this sometimes slippery ingredient. It takes 30-45 minutes at room temperature to soften butter properly. You’ll know your butter is perfectly softened when your fingertip leaves a slight indentation, but the stick still holds its shape. The Betty Crocker Test Kitchens also has a quick solution for softening butter, without melting it, for those times when taking the butter out to soften isn’t top of mind. Simply remove butter from packaging, place in glass bowl and cover with a damp paper towel and plastic wrap. Heat on high. For the quantity of butter called for in this recipe, you should cook for one minute and let the butter stand for two minutes. If necessary, repeat the process once more. Properly softened butter will ensure your cookies don’t spread too much, and they come out as soft, pillowy mounds of chocolate-studded love!
