The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies {EVER}

I did it! I created the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe in the Entire Universe – and that’s a big space.

Want confirmation? Just ask this guy.

Now, here’s the thing that is so exciting to me:

It’s my first very own recipe. My very first very own recipe.

That’s right. I took the little I know about baking, put it into the mixer, and out of the oven came these beauties.

What makes them better than other cookies in the universe:

1) They’re chewy. Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies – can you really argue with that?

2) They’re chocolatey, but not too chocolatey.

3) Now here’s the secret – I don’t add the salt until the very end – even after the chocolate chips. This gives the cookies these little sparkles of saline – total surprise. You get that salty sweetness that is neither overwhelming or underplayed. Try it, try it, you will see! You will like them, Sam-I-Am.
