The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

I have probably used 20 different chocolate chip cookie recipes in my life. Different sugars, variations of butter, dark chocolate chips, semi sweet chocolate chips, you name it, I’ve probably tried it. There is no dessert I make more because there is no dessert I love more. If I had to eat one dessert for the rest of my life, it would be a warm chocolate chip cookie.

I found Pinch of Yum’s Soft Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and tweaked it a bit with some of my favorite healthier alternative ingredients. If you’re the type that likes those chocolate chip cookies where they purposely left them in the oven too long to crisp them up, move along, these cookies aren’t for you. (But I respect your love for a crunchy cookie!). These cookies are the exact opposite. You almost think for a second that they aren’t done baking, that you should leave them in a little longer, BUT TRUST ME. Take them out, let them cool for just a few seconds, and then take the biggest bite out of the softest chocolate chip cookie you’ve ever had.

To say my passion for chocolate chip cookies is strong, would obviously be an understatement. I hope you make these cookies and then let me know if you loved them as much as we did. I can honestly say this is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ve ever tried. My batch made 12 large cookies, and within 24 hours they were gone… So, clearly Chad loves a soft chocolate chip cookie just as much as I do!
