Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

October 28, 2012

So, guys. You love chocolate chip cookies, don’t you? You think they are the greatest thing ever? Great! Me too! So I’m sure you don’t mind that I’m trotting out yet another chocolate chip cookie recipe. And I know you won’t roll your eyes when I tell you…again…that these are the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever eaten. Because they are. For sure. Trust me!

The perfect chocolate chip cookie is just slightly crispy on the outside, and moist and chewy on the inside. The whole cookie should be kind of dense, packed chocolate chips, and each bite should be rich with the flavors of butter, vanilla, and brown sugar. And when you eat one of these perfect cookies, you should lose all control over yourself and not be able to stop eating until you’re covered in cookie crumbs and two dozen cookies have somehow fit themselves into your aching stomach. Coincidentally, that’s exactly what happens when you eat one of these “best ever” chocolate chip cookies. Fair warning: if you try this recipe, be sure to have a gallon of milk handy, and put on your stretchy pants. Both will be necessary.

      Great idea! I have some leftover dough that I’m definitely going to make soon. Hope you’re staying dry in this weather!

    I’ve tried the NYTimes recipe without chilling…they still taste good but the texture doesn’t come out the same.

      Good to know! I did notice that the batch of cookies I made from dough chilled 24+ hours turned out especially great flavor and texture-wise.

    Beautiful photos. Is there any better cookie than chocolate chip? I am hosting a giveaway on Dining With Debbie during the month of Merry, Marry Munchies. There are two giveaways, actually: (1) $50 gift certificate to my favorite jeweler, and (2) a signed copy of Kat Robinson’s new book, Arkansas Pie: A Slice of the Natural State.
