Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been searching for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe for a long time.  For me, the perfect cookie is chewy, moist, not overly sweet, filled with chocolate chips, and with just a hint of crisp.  I’ve finally found that recipe!

And like all of my favorite recipes, this cookie is easy and quick.  It only takes 5 minutes to mix by hand and 10 minutes in the oven.. and tah-dah! Freshly baked, perfectly chewy cookies.

Before popping your cookies into the oven, make sure to nudge a few chocolate chips on top of each cookie.  There’s nothing worse than a cookie missing chocolate chips!
