Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I have made a lot of cookies over the years. This is the best recipe even though it does not look very different at first. Our family did a blind taste test and this one won hands down. I will never go back. Here are a few pointers to keep them from spreading- more chips is not better- it thins the dough too much so the cookies spread as there is nothing to hold on to, round the dough in large balls and chill over night, then bake on chilled cookie sheets. Re-chill cookie sheets in between batches, place in middle rack, one pan at a time. Use sil pats. DO not OVERBAKE! Use a timer- chilled dough balls take about 11.5 minutes, pull when you think they need a few more seconds to get rid of the wet dough look in the center of the cookie- they will continue to cook, trust me. You want them to be pale as they will brown a bit while they cool.
