Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip CookiesSo we’ve been on a quest for a really good chocolate chip cookie recipe.  Most of the ones that you get out of books are good but we were looking for a great one.  Even going and getting cookies from bakeries they came up a little short.  That’s why I usually grab a brownie because I love brownies!!  That’s a different post though.  We’ve (and I mean my hubby) looked and looked all over the internet and finally found a great chocolate chip cookie recipe.  We only changed it a little.  Since we are at high altitude it is really important to add more structure to your cookies, meaning you need to add more flour.  If you are at sea level just take half a cup of flour out of the recipe.  There are a lot of chocolate chips in this recipe but it turns out really good.  Photos are Below.  You should definitely try these Chocolate Chip Cookies.  They are awesome.
