Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
Best chocolate chip cookies ever...seriously. I used to have the worst time making this classic because I prefer a doughy cookie over a flat sugary cookie. These are perfect, and they work every time. Recipe via Milk Eggs Chocolate, via Smitten Kitchen, via AllRecipes.com. I guess these have made the rounds, which is understandable, because they are perfect. I add a bit of orange zest, because I love the contrast with the semi sweet chocolate. I also don't melt the butter, I just cream it while it is room temp and then add the sugars. And I let the dough chill in the fridge for an hour or so before I start any baking - it seems to help them firm up a bit. I have to admit that I may have overdosed on these. Three batches in two weeks will do that to you. Don't say I didn't warn you.
