This is my family’s favorite cookie recipe – hands down. When my husband is craving chocolate chip cookies – these are what he asks for. The baked cookies measure 4-5 inches across and are soo delicious – just the perfect cookie in my opinion. Chewy on the inside with a little crunchy goodness on the outside.
Use this dough as a starting point for making your own creations. We love to add in nuts, candies, different flavor chips – it’s fun to make this cookie a little different every time.
I make these cookies at Christmas and add some red and green M&Ms. They go in goody boxes that I give to everyone and these are ooooohhhh and aaaahhhhed over each and every time. Truly the perfect cookie! If you’re looking to make a big impression and maybe a couple friends, make sure to bake up a couple batches and spread the joy!
