Chocolate chip cookies. They are, pretty much, the holy grail of recipes. Who doesn't love a chocolate chip cookie? And how many versions of them are there out there?
There is, of course, always the classic Nestle Toll House recipe - one can never really go wrong with it. But there are hundreds more recipes to be had. I'm willing to try some of those out. This is not the first I've posted on this blog and it probably won't be the last!
The most recent recipe I tried was for Ghiradelli Chocolate Chip cookies. It was, of course, from the back of the Ghiradelli Chocolate chip bag. This recipe is definitely a keeper. The cookies come out a little crispier than chewy but are still divine and on my list of recipes to keep around!
