Oh, chocolate chip cookies what a difficult cookie to master. I can never seem to make the right cookies I'm in the mood for. Some people like thin cookies, some people like thick and chewy. What camp do you fall into? I'm a solidly in the camp of thick and chewy cookies where the cookie puffs up and barely spreads during baking. And these cookies fit the bill perfectly. They are small enough where I don't feel too guilty eating one but delicious enough where it isn't out of the question that I ate the entire plateful.
I have been wanting to make some cookies since our weather turned cold (which was about 2 weeks ago). Chocolate chip cookies just seem like the perfect snack for a cold winter day.
Please make these now. You won't regret it, I promise. They are so good.
