Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are so many chocolate chip cookie recipes.  I think I have at least five here on this blog.  No matter how many different ones I try, though, I almost always go back to this one.  It’s simply a classic soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie.  And, it’s in my recipe notebook marked with over twenty five years of drips, spills and splotches from making the recipes it contains.  I know I can grab that book and find all of my favorite, tried and true recipes.  Perhaps that, more than anything ensures that I keep making this recipe.  I don’t have to turn on the computer or get out a lot of books to find what I am looking for.  Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip CookiesLaziness aside, though, folks, this is one great cookie.  I often make it with mini chocolate chips, like pictured above because I think they help get chocolate into every bite.  There is nothing I hate more than a chocolate chip cookie with only one chip in it.  However, I make this recipe with whatever chips I have on hand.  If I only have big ones, then that’s what we eat.  I just have to be a little more careful to distribute the chips evenly.
