The Chocolate Chip Cookie, a classic. I have to tell you, I’ve been working on getting this one right for a while! Baking with my boys is something I really enjoy doing and we’ve made some pretty delicious cookies but for some reason the class chocolate chip cookie has given me trouble every time! See the issue has been either they come out too flat, too cake-y (according to my brother), not sweet enough…. and in the words of my hubby, “finally a good chocolate chip cookie”.

Cookies, well baking in general can be so finicky which is why I tend to stick to cooking but I do love making cookies! There are a couple cookie recipes that I feel like i’ve nailed, my Cream Cheese Cookies & my Soft Sugar Cookies. Those two are more the soft and cake-y types but I LOVE them!!! Back to the Chocolate Chip Cookie, I got them right with this recipe, they have a great crunchy exterior with a chewy interior, perfect sweetness and a good amount of chips. They are perfect for milk dunking too!

These freeze very well too! Once completely cooled you can wrap them up in foil and then into a freezer bag. When you want to take them out to serve, simply pop them on a baking sheet into a 350 degree over for 5 minutes until nice and warm.
