Our FAVORITE Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I know, in the middle of a diet BAKING Chocolate Chip Cookies (leave it to my teenage daughters who just had to have them). And yes, they baked them all by themselves! Last year we did a "self" challenge cooking everyday for a year and sharing our recipes, and during that year we came across many recipes that we tried over and over again until we found that ONE perfect one that we loved (or we mixed a few recipes together to create a favorite).

So, this is our families FAVORITE Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe (I have NO idea where it came from, if anyone knows please let us know! As far as I know this could be the one on the back of a box somewhere). But let me tell you, we made batches and batches of everyone's "claim to fame chocolate chip cookie recipe" and this is OUR FAVORITE.

  1. The picture looks great! So what exactly made this recipe your family's favorite?

  2. Thanks Kristin, I think because they are CHEWY and they don't get hard (we hate hard chocolate chip cookies) - the key there is baking them perfectly, once you find your oven's perfect speed ours is about 11 minutes! And my husband says cuz they are plump (haha) they aren't FLAT! That too is a big deal... we hate those cookies that are so flat and paper thin! We hope you make them and let us know what you think! Happy Baking!

  3. sounds delicious! I think I'll wait until after Shrinkvivor is over...haha :-)
