Why we love Trader Joe’s chocolate chip cookies Recipe

Smelling chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven brings me back to childhood. Taking turns with my brother putting each ingredient into the bowl. After mixing the batter my mom instructed us not to eat the raw cookie dough, but every time she turned her head in went our little fingers. These are the moments that make a house a home.

How to make Perfect Trader Joe’s chocolate chip cookies

It’s all in the timing! Bake the cookies at 375F for nine minutes. Then immediately after removing the cookies from the oven turn on the overhead range fan. This allows the cookie to cool quickly so that you can remove them from the pan faster. This step is important because the longer that cookie sits on a hot pan it continues to cook the centers. Now you have the perfect cookie, firm but soft outside with a warm chocolaty gooey center.
