Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Thick. Soft. Chewy. Gooey. All words to describe my very favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. It's one of those recipes that is written on an index card, the index card has little splatters of butter and looks well used. All I can say is that those are the best kind of recipes!

I long struggled to find the ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe. I have made some that were soft when I pulled them out of the oven but when they cooled they were hard. I really wanted to soft and gooey!

Tips for Getting Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

First. A few tips. So, yes please read this part. I know your wanting to skip ahead to the recipe but these steps are important.

1. Use real butter! I know you might be scared of the fat and I know that it costs a little more than the cheap margarine. I promise you butter is a healthy fat and it makes these cookies amazing!

2. Eggs and butter should be room temperature before you start. It's what I have found to work the best.

3. Chocolate Chips. Go for a good quality of these delicious little chunks of chocolate. There really is a difference in the taste from store brand to name brand when it comes to chocolate chips. 

4. Use real vanilla. None of that imitation stuff.
