When I saw the title “Best ever chocolate chip cookies,” I thought “sure, whatever, that’s what they all say.” Nope. This one is actually true. I like my cookies ooey and gooey, and I like them to stay that way; no hardening over the days they sit in the cookie jar. This wonderful recipe has a secret ingredient, and honestly…I’ll never go back to Tollhouse. (Sorry! I’ve been a firm believer for years, but I can’t deny the sheer awesome of this recipe). I found it on Cheri Chavis’s Board, and it was originally pinned from Apple a Day (a teacher blog, woot!) She’s right, stop what you’re doing right now and make these cookies!
3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. bittersweet chocolate chips
I didn’t have regular chocolate chips, only mini’s. They were great, but I can’t wait to make it with those big morsels 🙂 I followed the recipe and the directions exactly as directed with one exception. I don’t use spray on the cookie trays anymore. My father-in-law taught me that Parchment Paper makes the best cookies, and I haven’t had a burnt bottom or a torn cookie since. These cookies seriously are some yummy goodness–they didn’t last two days in this house. Perfect for our bad-movie-marathon.
Notes: A little too small for my liking, but absolutely delicious.
Ease of preparation: 5/5
Ease of cleanup: 4/5 (cookies are always a pain to clean up without a dishwasher…)
Availability of ingredients: 5/5
By far my favorite recipe I’ve found on Pinterest.
