*The Best* Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the best chocolate chip cookies. They’re so good, I’m a little hesitant to share the recipe with you.

I came across this recipe a couple of years ago, and it’s the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ve made since!

If you have a kitchen scale, it’s best to weigh the flour.


I usually bake mine for 13-14 minutes, but every oven is different! When you pull them out, they should look very soft in the center and just slightly brown around the edges. They’ll continue to cook for a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet.


Yum yum yum. There’s chocolate in every bite!
