The last couple of batches of my chocolate chip cookies went from delicous to foamy tasting although I was using the same recipe and ingredients and sam measuring methods. I'm confused as to why the texture changed so drastically.

  • Do you mean 'cakey'?

    "foamy tasting" - do you mean their structure was too light, like a foam, or do you mean their taste reminded you of soap?

Your dough warmed up and the fat started to melt. In between batches, keep the dough cold in the fridge.

Over-mixing the dough will also contribute to cake like cookies if a whole batch comes out like that.
