Chocolate Chip Cookies are a favorite comfort food for many, with countless different recipes, but this variation absolutely has the best taste and texture! Chocolate Chip Cookies are a recipe that I have been searching for a “perfect” version of. Over the last 10-15 years, I have made dozens of variations, and there have been several that I really like but I always come back to this one! There are several reasons why these are the best. First of all, they are very simple to make. I’ve tried some “best” chocolate chip cookie recipes that require a lot of extra steps and I haven’t found the results to be worth the extra time and effort involved. Also, the dough is amazing! I have a couple recipes that make good cookies, but the dough isn’t quite so good and to me, the dough is the best part so it has to be perfect. Another reason I like these is because they always turn out perfectly – they are soft and don’t end up being flat or crunchy which is very important to me. Every time I take these cookies anywhere, everyone is begging me for the recipe which is always a good sign for a must-have recipe. This recipe makes a ton of cookies too which is perfect if you need to take a treat to a party or a bake sale or somewhere.
