Chocolate Chip Cookies

By Christina Collins

There are so many chocolate chip cookie recipes out there- how can you choose which one to use?! So the first step is to decide what kind of cookie you are looking to make. Chewy, soft, thick, thin, chunky, cakey, crispy, salty? Once you determine what kind of cookie it is you seek, you can narrow down your recipe search.

Now, if you are looking for a thin, salty, semi-crisp chocolate chip cookie- then look no further. I’ve got you covered.

My recipe is inspired by Ina Garten’s Chocolate Chunk recipe but with the changes that helped turn it into what I consider the best recipe for me! You should do the same to make it your own! For me, I’m not a fan of big chunks of chocolate so I like to use mini chocolate chips because they melt into the cookie and are sprinkled throughout. I also only include walnuts every so often. Remember… walnuts and raisins are always optional!

The salty sweetness of this cookies is a real crowd pleaser 🙂
