Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

A friend of mine recently requested I make a treat for him to take to a social function. I decided to make these chocolate chip cookies after reading a review of various chocolate chip cooking recipes. I've since noticed that this recipe has been featured on a number of food blogs, and many bakers are claiming this is the best ever chocolate chip cookie recipe. They are rather like the large chewy cookies you are likely to find at bakeries and farmer markets.

This recipe is a keeper! Miraculously, the cookies made it to the function and apparently they were a success because there were none left by the end of the evening. I altered the recipe slightly after reading some reviews and I reduced the size of the cookie to make the batch go further. If you want a larger cookie, use about 1/4 cup of dough for each cookie.
