chocolate chip cookies from heaven

8.26.2010









I obsess over chocolate chip cookies. I think they're my favorite kind...so simple, but so delicious. I like them a little crispy, but still soft at the same time. But I can't stand doughy cookies. Ick.

So, because I'm fairly picky when it comes to cookies, it's hard to find the perfect recipe. I stumbled across a new one yesterday, and decided to give it a try.

I whipped up the ingredients (these are super easy!) and tried the batter. It was scrumptious. After eating a bit, I walked around the kitchen, moaning, "This is so good. Oh my gosh. This is so good. This is so, so good." (other words failed me at the moment ;)) It took a great deal of self control to only eat three spoonfuls of the stuff.

When the cookies were finished baking, I tested one. And about fell over. The finished product was even better than the dough. I didn't think a cookie this good was achievable. Is it possible to swoon over a cookie? Because I'm swooning, big time. These cookies are pure buttery, chocolatey goodness. They're like chocolate chip cookies sent from heaven.

I have now found the perfect chocolate chip recipe. It's the one, folks. It's the recipe that going to be all worn and tattered. The recipe that will soon be so familiar I'll know it by memory. The recipe that is going to be passed down from generation to generation in my family. Okay, maybe not the last part. I'm being a bit dramatic. But really. Make these. Your life will be forever changed.

What's your favorite kind of cookie?

  12. MMM, yUm!!! I believe chocolate chip cookies are the most all-American comfort food there is! Offer aNyOnE a chocolate chip cookie and they automatically light up, have a story about choc chip cookies or instantly have a warm memory pop up in their heart! OOooOOhh, and I'm with ya on the crisp, but soft, but not doughy texture of a choc chip cookie...utter DeLiGhT, sheer pEfEcTiOn!

  14. Julianna, nope, it doesn't! I just always use a pizza stone because my cookies turn out best on it. But you can use whatever you have on hand.

  20. We share a favourite cookie!!
    Have you tried the chocchip cookies from a recipe book called deceptively delicious? They have chickpeas in them and i know it sounds GROSS, i initially thought so too until i tried it.
    Literally if i make a batch of 18, it lasts an hour and i am the only cookie monster in this house of 4!!

    you can check out the web site: www.deceptivelydelicious.com or Google the cookies or if you want, can pop me a mail and i will email you the recipe.
    Trust me, you will REALLY love them!!
