      The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies! (Maybe?)

      One thing that folks often skip in this recipe is chilling. It can dramatically change the texture and consistency of this cookie and I highly recommend that you do NOT SKIP CHILLING. If you can’t resist snacking or popping them in the oven, try making a double batch. It’s worth it.

      So be sure you plan ahead. After assembling the dough, chill it for at least 24 hours before baking it, preferably up to 36. This allows the dry ingredients time to soak up the wet ones, which results in a firmer, richer dough.

    • Why do I have to refrigerate??

    • I love what u do thanks for show me your baking I love them move video thanks u alot

    • The Chocolate Chip Recipe won’t copy. I have tryed it twice and when you press print it isn’t printing.

    • I followed this to the letter. The dough was way too dry-even crumbly. A real pain to make into portions.
      Should add 1 more egg.
      Tasted fine though.

    • I don’t understand the chocolate cookie recipe

    • Can this cookie dough be frozen? I would like to only make a few cookies at a time instead of a whole batch.
      Thank you

    • This is a great recipe. Have made perfect cookies every time but the first time when the dough was crumbly and difficult to work with. The next time I put the whole batch in large Ziploc baggies and it stayed moist and useable. I will use this recipe every time I can wait for the full 24 hours.

    • finally found a nice normal looking perfectly chewy choc chip cookie, ty!
