The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

You may be wondering, what makes these the best chocolate chip cookies. Easy answer, it’s the warm gooey center, the soft crispy edges, the tantalizing flavor of butter sugar and double chocolate. Sounds good, right?I found this recipe on and in every way they surpassed my expectations.

A few reminders prior to making these indulgent chocolate chip cookies. First, the batter must be refrigerated a minimum of 24 hours prior to baking (a perfect make ahead desert). Second, after chilling dough for 24-36 hours you must allow the dough to come to room temp prior to baking. Third, both cake flour and bread flour (swapping bread flour for all purpose flour works) are used and this brand of cake flour works wonderful-KING ARTHUR CAKE FLOUR. Last, but not least, recommending that you use 2 different chocolates, chocolate chips and chunks. By implementing multiple types of chocolate this provides an extra layer of flavor and texture.

Immediately following dinner this cookie was popped into the oven and served with a cold glass of milk. Collectively and abruptly, I received a huge thumbs up from every person at that table. No crumbs left behind, they devoured each and every morsel.
