Way, way back when I started this blog, I told you I was looking for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. Yes, so is everyone else. I mostly just love chocolate chip cookie dough and wanted an excuse to eat it. Full disclosure. ;)
So here is a less-than-picturesque post about two of my attempts at chocolate-chip cookie perfection… One done many moons ago when I was at home, and one just this past weekend.
First up: Jenna’s Chocolate Chip Cookies!
My brother has proclaimed these his favorite of the many recipes I’ve made. I thought they were a liiittle flatter than I would like (I like a kind of dense, chewy cookie) but they were summarily devoured anyways. And they do have the benefit of being an incredibly straight-forward recipe. No crazy flours or refrigerations required!
I found the recipe over at one of my FAVORITE blogs: Eat, Live, Run. Her love for life (and food) comes out in every single post and she inspires me on a daily basis. Go stalk her. ;)
I honestly made it exactly according to the recipe and I’m a lazy bum so I’m gonna let you hop on over there and peruse her site ;). Click here for the recipe!
The next one was another quintessential chocolate chip cookie recipe from Allrecipes. These are the ones I made just this weekend, in my friend’s apartment (hooray for having an oven!). I’m still pretty shy about my food-blogging habits, so I took an incredibly mediocre picture just for the sake of documentation:
I loved these, actually. They came together pretty easily, though I’m kind of sad about the fact that I just threw away the egg white… but these were delicious. My friends seemed to like them as well. I did put in some chopped-up Hershey’s Hugs at the request of my friend, and that turned out decently as well.
I actually made these with a combination of Guittard Semisweet and Milk Chocolate chips, and was surprised at how much I liked the milk chocolate chips. Usually I’m more of a dark-chocolate girl ;)
Wanna make these ones too? Head over here for the recipe! It’s super easy and really gets pretty good results :)
And here’s my friend’s yellow lab puppy. Who distracted me as I waited for cookies to bake. Just for good measure (and to make up for the atrocious photography in this post… I miss my DSLR. It’s coming to me this Thursday though!)
What’s YOUR go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe? (clearly I need more than the 300-some I have saved in my favorites…)
