THE Only Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe You’ll Ever Need
There are three secrets to making this recipe the best batch of chocolate chip cookies to ever come out of your kitchen. The first is creaming the butter, sugar, and eggs. Grab yourself an electric mixer and whip the sweet-and-holy-tarnation out of those ingredients. Don’t stop beating until they are white and fluffy. Number two is to chop a full pound of high-quality semi-sweet chocolate chips in your blender. You want them finely chopped, almost a powder (but not quite!) and don’t you dare think of scrimping on that pound of chocolate. ONE.POUND. The End. Finally, for truly outrageous cookies (shout out to Jem and the Holograms), be sure you give your cookie dough ample chilling time in the fridge. Overnight is nice, but an hour or two of refrigerating that dough (with the cookie dough well covered!) is vital to your success. With those three secrets tucked into your belt, you are now ready to join the ranks of Valley Girls everywhere, declaring that these “are, like, totally, the best chocolate chips cookies eva.” O.M.G.
