My husband was in shocked that I made plain ol’ chocolate chip cookies. He said, “wait, what did you say you baked?” These aren’t plain ol’ chocolate chips though. They are soft and chewy. They aren’t too thin and they aren’t too floury. These are definitely going down easy.
I always go above and beyond with everything anymore, but sometimes simple is the best. I made three-quarters of the dough without walnuts, and made the quarter I had left with nuts. Wesley and Lucian aren’t huge nut fans. Men can be so finicky sometimes. Scratch that. All the time.
I have developed quite the love for nuts since becoming an adult. When I was young I wouldn’t eat them in my baked goods or ice cream. Then again, when I was young I used to call chocolate chip cookies chocolate cooked chippies. I got it straight after I turned 15.
Just kidding. I was probably 5, I think. I’m such a jokester.
The cookie’s center is so soft and gooey. I absolutely love the center of a cookie. any cookie. I used both milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips in this cookie. You could easily use either or, but I like a combination. They melt together and form a creamy sweet but not overbearing flavor.
Well, let’s get to this little gem of a recipe, shall we?
Enjoy the soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies!
