Today is national chocolate chip cookie day! Yes, I know they have a day for everything but let’s take a moment to remember the person who makes your favorite chocolate chip cookie or the person who taught you how to bake the perfect chocolate chip cookie. For me it would be my Grandma Mary and my Mom. Both taught me that you want chewy cookies not crunchy so take them out of the oven while they are lightly golden and leave them on the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack, butter always needs to be room temperature, use an extremely thin spatula and taste test every batch. I hope you find those tips helpful and below are a couple of great chocolate chip recipes I shared over the years.
