Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe with a secret little ingredient. They are soft, chewy, and amazing! Learn the secrets to the chocolate chip cookies that everyone requests!
Chocolate Chip Cookies have to be our absolute favorite type of chocolate chip cookie recipe in the whole wide world. But seriously, chocolate chip cookies and milk? I think my son could eat his nine year old weight in them he loves them so much.
Last year, we had an experiment to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe and found one that we both loved. I turned them into chocolate chip cookie brownies and even used them in my recipe for chocolate chip peanut butter doozies that will knock your socks off they are so delicious!
But then, just a while back my husband told me he really preferred a chewy chocolate chip cookie. So our adventure started again.
We spent afternoons in the kitchen mixing, tasting, baking, and grinning from ear to ear.
It’s a tough life testing chocolate chip cookie recipes, isn’t it?
But a mighty delicious one at that.
Who would have thought that the cookie my family loved the most as a “chocolate chip cookie” has oatmeal in it?
But from one taste of the dough, we knew this recipe was different.
If you like your cookies to be crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside with the perfect combination of sweet and a little bite of salty then this cookie recipe has your name on it, too!
Scoop your chocolate chip cookie dough onto cookie sheet and bake for about 8-10 minutes just until lightly golden brown.
Remove from the oven and watch them disappear.
