Addicting Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sunday, August 16, 2015
Addicting Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of the many people's guilty pleasures.

This cookie recipe is basic, easy, and my favorite.

I have made so many kinds of cookies over the last 20 years so and so many chocolate chip cookie recipes you wouldn't believe it.

Chocolate chips are loved by many but oh so many different ways to make them and all seem to say they're the best!

Some like them soft, crispy, chewy, gooey, hard, thin, thick. The list goes on and on.

If your a cookie jar cookie lover, do try my family's Everything Cookies, Chocolate Chip Shortbread recipe, Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe, and oatmeal cookies!

So the actual preference is an opinion on what the best cookie is. Well this chocolate chip cookie, in my opinion, is the best I ever made.

these cookies are soft, crispy, chewy they are the perfect chocolate chip cookies and addicting

Will never try another chocolate chip cookie recipe but you decide if they are the best to you. They were gone on the first day!

Of course, don't let me be the judge of these, you need to try them and let me know what you think good or bad I would love to hear from you!

  1. Bake on parchment paper or Silpat mat
  2. Always preheat the oven
  3. Use butter not margarine
  4. Additions like chocolate chunks, candy bars, coconut or sprinkles can be added
  5. Store these in an airtight container with wax paper between the cookies for freshness
  6. Do not store with other cookies in the same container (cookies take on the flavors or others)
  7. Try using almond  or coconut extract instead of vanilla for a different flavored cookie
