Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
I made these cookies twice in the last 48 hours and they are AMAZING! I had made a different recipe a few days earlier, but to me they tasted a little dry, although my friends said they were good. After making these, people were grabbing 3 or 4 at a time and were gone within minutes! Also, I'm incredibly critical of my own baking and will never admit to having baked something yummy, except on a very rare occasion. THIS IS THAT RARE OCCASION!
I did not alter the recipe at all and followed it exactly. After creaming the sugar and butter, I made very sure to beat the eggs and vanilla in for about 4 minutes (as another user suggested) until it was light and creamy (as the recipe suggests!). Also, 1/4 c was too big to me for a cookie and so I halved these. Cooking time doesn't change though. Last but not least, cook these for about 15 minutes, but most importantly, they should look unfinished. Like maybe 1 or 2 more minutes will get them looking right. Nope, when they still look just a little bit wet and not quite crisp around the edges yet, take them out! They will finish outside the oven to complete, award winning perfection!
