Good To Know About This Soft Chocolate Chip Cookie:

This Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe doubles and triples well!

I’ve made these cookies many times for friends and family and one batch is never enough. They eat them all before they even cool off. I double or triple the recipe just so that I’ll get to have a few the next day.

If you want these cookies to stay moist, put in sealed container after baking. Want them crunchy, leave them exposed to air. Like them hot pop into the microwave for a bit.

Whatever you do – don’t pass these up. My friends wonder what amazing bakery I stole the Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe from whenever I make them.
