Every Christmas since I can remember I have made chocolate chip cookies. I have burned up several electric mixers in the process of trying to mix the dough and have scorched lots of cookies because I forgot to set the timer.
These pictures are from a few years ago when I was trying out a salted chocolate chunk cookie recipe. Some people loved them, but others craved the traditional favorite.
Here is the recipe I always use for chocolate chip cookies.
I started with the Original Nestle Toll House Cookie recipe and only made a few changes over the years.
The other tip to keeping the cookies soft is storing them in an air-tight container.
Try sprinkling a little coarse sea salt on top of cookies right out of the oven for a sweet and salty treat.
