Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Dude. They are good. And by good, I mean people assault me when I bring them to parties and they are gone within minutes. I know, everyone has a chocolate chip cookie recipe. But let me tell you how I made mine THE BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe. Ever.

This recipe came about somehow, somewhere in the 90’s off of the back of a bulk package of generic chocolate chips somewhere and has progressed with some tweeks over the years.

    I was excited to try these, as I’ve been searching forever for my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe. These were disappointing, though. I’m an experienced baker, and followed the recipe exactly, but they spread and were just…ugly. The dough tasted great but the baked cookie was just okay tasting. I think they need more flour and perhaps a bit more sugar. I’ve got the dough chilling to see if that helps the spreading issue.

      I had the exact same experience with the spreading and they were burnt for me at 9 minutes. I did however just want to eat all the raw dough it was so good.

    My best is that New York Times crazy involved recipe that you have to age for at least 24 hours before baking. I can’t remember what it’s like to have a chocolate chip recipe that you could just make and bake, like, in the same hour. I obviously long for a simpler time and place.

      Those better be some goooood cookies! I’m tempted to challenge you to a bake off.

    Love it! a new chocolate chip cookie recipe to try. Our family’s “BEST” is just a modification of the Nestle recipe on the bag. Use half butter and half butter-flavored shortening. I like the white chocolate chips in there!
