Chocolate Chip Monday

Chocolate chip cookies always seem kind of basic to me.  When I see chocolate chip in a line-up, I usually go for something more exciting.  Then I eat a chocolate chip cookie and remember they're the most amazing things in the world.  I was at my parent's house abandoning some of my possessions on Saturday and discovered some that my mom had made.  Then I had to go home and bake some myself.

Everyone has a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe in their back pocket, so I won't share mine here (especially since it's c/o Betty Crocker).  I have picked up some tips along the way though on how to make your cookies awesome instead of sad and flat, the most important of which is to make sure all of your ingredients are room temperature, not just the butter.

I think the boyfriend is very pleased with his new roommate ;)

  1. Omg... YUM! I adore chocolate chip cookies. I've never told anybody this, but I honestly just like the cookie dough without the chocolate chips rather than with them in. I do love chocolate, but I love butter/sugar based pastries and I feel that chocolate takes away from it rather than adds to it. Perhaps, though, now that I'm really thinking about it, it could depend on the quality of chocolate you're baking with. Worth experimenting! These look delicious, by the way. I'm inspired to make some this week. My son will love it-he's 2 1/2 years old and just discovering the benefits of "helping" mommy bake sweets. Lol.

    Did you just move in with your boyfriend? :)

  11. These are my favorite thing in the whole world. I have a recipe that adds Oreos (we call it the turducken cookie around here) & it kills me every. time.

  12. Oh my gosh that sounds delicious! Great name the cookie ;)

  13. That sounds so good! I love sweet & salty. You should post the recipe ;)

  14. I have heard some people that higher quality chips make all of the difference, but I've never tried it so I can't really weigh in. I do usually leave some of the dough sans chips because I like a plain cookie now and then too!
