{flashback Friday} World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookie

I’ve lied to you. I promise it wasn’t on purpose.  I made this same claim a little while ago, and while those cookies are still delicious (I mean, you really can’t go wrong with a chocolate chip cookie, can you?), these have snuck up from behind to claim the coveted title. I haven’t tried a new basic chocolate chip cookie recipe in years, because I figured once you’ve found a keeper there’s no need. But there was just something about this recipe and it’s claim, and I knew I had to give it a try. Holy moly. The absolute perfect combination of a slightly crisp outside with a warm and chewy inside. This time I’m not lying when I say they’re the best chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever had. But you have to eat them warm out of the oven (which isn’t hard to do) for the ultimate euphoric experience. But like I said, my original recipe is still pretty dang tasty, so it’s included below and you can be the judge!

World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookie
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 1/4 cups flour
1 cup (or more) chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream butter for 4-5 minutes then add in sugars and mix until combined. Mix in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients then gradually mix into the creamed butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips, then form into tablespoon sized balls 2-inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until just set and starting to lightly brown.

Original Post:

This recipe literally changed my life. I always dreamed of being that kind of mom with warm chocolate chip cookies waiting for my kids when they got home from school, and I was determined that my future grand kids would beg to go to grandma’s house to eat my cookies. The only problem was that I could not make chocolate chip cookies. They turned out too flat, too hard or too dense. Until my friend passed along this recipe years ago. I finally had found the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe and I’ve never looked back. Your welcome, future grand kids. And as a side note, American chocolate chip cookies are a bit of a novelty here. I love spreading the love one moist and chewy chocolate chip cookie at a time. I feel sorta like a rockstar.

The perfect chocolate chip cookie

3/4 C butter, room temp
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 C brown sugar
2 1/2 C flour
1 C sugar
1 ½ C chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350. Cream together butter, sugars, vanilla and eggs until smooth. Sift flour, baking soda and salt then add to creamed mixture and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips then form into balls and place 2 in apart on baking sheet. Bake for 11-12 min or until just lightly browned. They should look slightly under cooked, but take them out of the oven and let them sit on the cookie sheet for two minutes before putting on a cooling rack.
