Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I  saw the bold declaration of this blog post, it read like a challenge to me. First of all, I’m not much of a chocolate chip cookie kinda gal, but when it comes to baking, I’ll bake only when I know there’s  gathering. And when it comes to big groups, I’ve learned that a classic, no-fail recipe, which elicits a response along the lines of “This is amazing. How did you do it?” has a bigger pay off than a dish involving complicated cooking techniques.

These chocolate chip cookies have a pinch of sea salt. The combination allows for a sweet yet savory treat. I’ve baked them for a friend’s engagement party and even for a memorial gathering. It can be comfort food or serve as a bit of a reward, proving no matter what the occasion, they’re totally appropriate.

There are two major stages to this: prepping, which requires at least 12 hours of refrigeration and then the baking with about 15 minutes for each batch.

Once the dough has been chilled, I recommend a good cookie scoop to ensure each cookie is perfectly round. This OXO Good Grips Large Cookie Scoop is the one I have in my kitchen. Be sure to pack in the dough for an even cookie.

Thanks to For Me, For You for sharing this “out of this world,” “best chocolate chip cookie ever” recipe. No exaggeration. These are the type of responses I get when I bring a batch to gatherings!
