My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Is there anything better than chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven, with the chocolate chips still melted? 

These Chocolate Chip Cookies are my favorite. They’re delicious, not too sweet, soft and amazing!

If you’ve been around my blog for long, you’ll know that I love baking.  I happy bake, I stressed bake, and I angry bake.  But pretty much, I just bake a lot.  I’m always whipping up a batch of cookies or muffins.

Baking cookies, cakes, muffins, and breads makes me happy!  If you’re new to cooking and baking, I’ve got a list of the items I think are must-have kitchen items, so that you don’t waste your money or space on gimmicky items!

Some of my favorite recipes I’ve baked are:

Strawberry Muffins

Apricot Upside Down Cake

No matter how many delicious recipes I’ve baked, my favorite is and always will be chocolate chip cookies.  So today I’m going to share with you the recipe for what I consider to be the perfect chocolate chip cookies.

I know that everyone has different opinions on what makes an amazing chocolate chip cookie.  Some people like them thick, some like them thin.  Some people like them chewy, some like them crispy.

To me, the perfect chocolate chip cookies are ones that are just sweet enough, but not overly sweet.  They are soft and chewy, but not very thick.  They have just the perfect proportion of gooey chocolate chips to batter.
