Classic chocolate chip cookie. MMMmmm…
After looking at the ingredients you may think these are average chocolate chip cookies, but they’re anything but! These were crispy around the edges and soft and chewy in the middle. Nothing beats a plate full of warm chocolate chip cookies with some milk for dunking.
Though there are a bajillion kinds of cookies out there, I think my favourite will always just be the chocolate chip cookie. It’s easy to make, it tastes great, and it doesn’t need nuts or any other kind of adornment to flatter itself (don’t let that stop you from spicing your CCCs up though). It’s simple and humble with they’re cute chocolate chips. I love simplicity.
Though these cookies were good, they weren’t the ‘knock my off my feet’ kind of good. Like many other bakers out there, I’m on a quest to find ‘the cookie’. I want something thick and chewy and studded with chocolate! I have heard of the ever so famous chocolate chip cookies from baking illustrated but I have yet to try them out. They’re pretty high up on the priority of my to-bake-list though! For now, here’s the recipe:
