If you are looking for the perfect, simple classic chocolate chip cookie look no further! This is it! I’ve made a lot of chocolate chips cookies in my life but I still wasn’t set on one recipe. That is until I made these thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies! They look amazing and taste so amazing! And just as the title says they are thick and chewy. My favorite!
I love chocolate chip cookies so much I have a lot of recipes varieties on my blog: Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, The NY Times Chocolate Chip Cookie, Healthified Chocolate Chip Cookies, Puffy Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Chips, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, Pumpkin-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, Walnut-Chocolate Chip Cookies, Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies, Oatmeal-Flax Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough that’s safe to eat! That’s a LOT of cookie recipes! All using chocolate chips, all amazing but yet I didn’t have a good classic chocolate chip cookie.
That is until I discovered these cookies! And oh my goodness! No doubt the best chocolate chip cookie I have ever had! I’ve made these 4 or 5 times now since discovering the recipe and each time it’s just perfect. My perfect chocolate chip cookie is THICK and chewy and that’s what we have here with this recipe! One thing that I love about these cookies is how they look. That is because of the way you place them on the cookie sheet.
Instead of the typical roll out the cookie dough into a ball (which by the way is my least favorite part of making cookies) you take a ball of dough and break it in half then place the dough with the jagged edges face up. So it looks amazing! You don’t have to do it this way but I recommend it!
Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Recipe slightly adapted from Annie’s Eats, originally from Baking Illustrated
(Optional: At this point to make the cookies thicker, I place the cookie sheet with the cookies on it in the freezer for at least 10 minutes then place it in the oven.)
