Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This simple Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe is perfect when you are in the mood for some cookies! Chocolate chip cookies are a classic cookie that is great for any occasion. They are delicious, especially right out of the oven!

Recipes for chocolate chip cookies can get pretty complicated. I must admit, it seems like a simple cookie, but it is affected a lot by small variations. I wanted a recipe that was not overly complicated and could be made quickly. Which I think is important when you have a craving for cookies!

There are also lots of different versions of chocolate chip cookies. This recipe makes a cookie that is on the softer side. However, if you want a crispier cookie, just turn the oven temperature up! Makes it easy if you have a crowd that likes different versions. Just make one recipe and bake half at another oven temperature!

I must admit, when I was younger and just starting to bake, I would make chocolate chip cookies all the time. However, since I was in high school, I liked to make things easy and would just buy a cookie mix from the store. I eventually developed this recipe which I like even better!

If you want to take your chocolate chip cookies up a notch, you could always add them to ice cream. Or make larger cookies and make your own cookie ice cream sandwiches! Another option is to make them fancier by dipping half of them in chocolate. There are a lot of possibilities!
