Ryan loves chocolate chip cookies. He really, really loves them, but even though they are his favorite cookie, he is really particular about them. Over the last three years I have tried at least fifteen different recipes, and each time he would say one of these: "Too much (insert ingredient here)," "Not soft enough," "Maybe don't put so much vanilla next time." As if it's even possible to taste a teaspoon of vanilla.
Now I am making him sound really bad, but the cookies always got eaten, and he always complained really nicely.
I came across this recipe from Back for Seconds on Pinterest. It looked promising and had all of the qualities Ryan is usually picky about (IE: softness). I cut the recipe in half and only used milk chocolate chips because he doesn't like semi-sweet.
And I finally got a thumbs up from Ryan, which means I can finally end my search for chocolate chip cookies! I even overcooked the first batch, and he still liked them. The second batch I watched more carefully, and they really did come out perfect. Even I think they are pretty great! If you are in need of a new recipe, try this one out! You won't be disappointed!
