A soft version recipe for my favorite
homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate Chip Cookies are my favorite cookie to bake, without question. But that doesn’t mean I don’t crave variety! Thin & crispy cookies are wonderful with a mug of fresh brewed coffee, the cookies can be topped with a sprinkling of sugar for extra crispiness. Homestyle, oversized cookies with a generous handful of chocolate chunks are my choice when I am craving milk and cookies.
On certain days, when the idea for baking a batch of cookies is on my mind, only soft and chewy cookies will do. The following homemade chocolate chip recipe is one of my favorite versions of chocolate chip cookies that have a delicious crinkled top, yet come out of the oven with a soft texture in the middle and a slightly chewy edge. I like keeping a dozen or two unbaked dough balls in the freezer for those last minute cookie cravings! I store them in a ziploc lock bag for weeks, then bake just a few when I want warm, out of the oven, homemade cookies. These are perfect, classic cookie jar cookies. Hope you enjoy trying this recipe!
