Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

As soon as I got married, and my wife and I started talking about having a baby, I knew that chocolate chip cookies was something that I definitely wanted to know how to make.  One of my fondest childhood memories is helping my mom make chocolate chip cookies; but I didn’t just want to copy my mom’s recipe, so I got my own.  My wife isn’t much of a baker, so I thought I’d better step up. This one is a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe.  It’s those big, chewy cookies you’d find in the cookie jar as a kid.  No fussy eater could turn these down.
