The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe: From Our Family to Yours

Crave Chocolate Chunk Cookies

We have a serious passion for great baking. And when it comes to our chocolate chip cookies, we are downright obsessed. Whenever we come across a magazine or blog claiming to have “the best chocolate chip cookie recipe”, we put it to the test. We bake it exactly as the recipe says, and then blind taste-test it against our own recipe. We are happy to report that we still prefer our family’s chocolate chip cookie recipe the best. They’re slightly chewy, a little crispy, with just the right amount of chocolate chips. Test them for yourself. We hope you like them as much as we do.
