Since having babies, I have had an addiction: All things dessert. My absolute favorite? Chocolate chip cookies! Thing is, I have tried TONS of recipes and they never quite live up to my standards. Since I feel like mastering cookies is a rite of passage into motherhood, let’s just say I’ve been busy trying different recipes for the past 2 years!
I like a really soft cookie, piled high with chocolate chips. There’s the perfect amount of salt, and they are baked until they have just a *touch* of golden brown around the edges. They break gently in your mouth, releasing the perfect amount of chocolate and cooked dough.
Ladies and gents, I think we finally have a winner! I have learned that coconut oil is the defining factor — it kind of gives the cookies a lift and makes them have the perfect, soft consistency.
Voila! Serve with a cold glass of milk.
These babies are NOT healthy. If you’re concerned you may eat the entire batch, simply throw them in the freezer to avoid over-indulgence 😉
What is your secret for making the perfect chocolate chip cookie?
