Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Have you ever had a truly visceral need for cookies? Because I think I get that like, once a week. One night after a long work day was over, I needed a cookie. As in, not just wanted a cookie, but needed a cookie.
I whipped this soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe up super quickly because I had absolutely no time to waste. The recipe took ten minutes to prepare (at most) and although the cookies aren't the prettiest, they've got that classic chocolate chip cookie feeling to them.
The taste of these chocolate chip cookies is super nostalgic–– they'll make you feel like you're five years old again and you're discovering that chocolate chip cookies are, in fact, the greatest joy in life. No, they're not Instagram-worthy... but if you're using this recipe, chances are you're more concerned about tasting the cookie than 'gramming it.
This certainly won't be my only take on chocolate chip cookies–– just the quickest and simplest one. I'm excited to come back to this classic and develop different methods, because there are just so many kinds of chocolate chip cookies you can make.
