Have you ever searched for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe? Chocolate chip cookies are the classic cookie. Everybody loves them. However, not everybody has the same idea of what the “perfect” chocolate chip cookie is like. Do you like your cookies crispy straight from the oven, or gooey inside and out? Do you like them flat like pancakes, or thick and chewy?
I have been looking a long time for a good chocolate chip cookie recipe. Most of them have been good, but not the WOW I was looking for. I came across these Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies on Sally’s Baking Addiction. They are the perfect cookie for me. If you like a thick, chewy, soft, and chocolaty cookie, than you will have the time of your life making and eating these cookies.
What makes these cookies so great? Well, if you think you will like these cookies, than pretty much everything.
- These cookies are very easy to make.
- They are very soft, not at all crispy or hard.
-They store well and are still soft, even after a few days.
- They are very, very chocolaty, which is perfect for me
This recipe calls for using melted butter. I thought after trying so many cookie recipes that melted butter was a no-no. The important part of this recipe is chilling the dough. That’s how you can get away with melted butter. Don’t skip chilling the dough or your cookies will be flat! I chilled our dough for 2-3 hours.
The first time I baked these, they seemed under cooked when I took them out at 10 minutes. They are supposed to be that way, and that is part of the reason why it makes them so soft. Do not bake them for more than 11 minutes. Trust me, that’s what makes them so good.
One of the things I hate about some cookie recipes: If you store them in the freezer, when you take them out, they are so hard you cannot bite into them no matter what you do. These cookies are nice because they are so soft and gooey when they come out of the oven, they will stay soft in the freezer, so you can bite into a cookie, not a rock.
If gooey, thick cookies are your idea of a perfect chocolate chip cookies, try these Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies today!
