The best soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies. This is the recipe I turn to whenever I want to bake classic chocolate chip cookies.
I’m often asked which of the chocolate chip cookie recipes on my site is my favorite. Well, these are it. I posted these a while ago and today I’m updating the recipe and photos because these cookies are my go-to recipe whenever I need to make a quick batch of cookies. Most often, those times are when a sudden craving for a chocolate chip cookie hits and I just can’t resist! I’ve made these cookies dozens of times and they always turn out perfectly.
