I don't think there is anything better in this wide world than chocolate chip cookies. I'm sure I've made grand statements like this before, but I mean it this time. Chocolate Chip Cookies are divine. They're amazing. They're perfect.
I was craving these little dollops of heaven so I found this recipe from Smitten Kitchen, named Crispy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, and obviously had to do something about this. Immediately.
I mixed the bowl of wet ingredients and another bowl of dry ingredients, then slowly added the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
Then I added the chocolate chips, putting the extra chips in the freezer. I may or may not have bought the family-size package for this very reason. I can neither confirm nor deny.
Then I put the dough in the refridgerator for about thirty minutes while the oven was preheating. After the dough was done chilling out, I scooped out the dough in 1 inch balls and arranged on a greased baking sheet. I baked for 10 minutes and the most adorable, perfect, silver-dollar sized cookies came out.
And one more because they're so lovely.
I only made twelve, then I pre-formed the rest of the dough and put it in a ziplock bag and froze them.
Now I can have fresh baked cookies any time I want for as long as this dough will last. I'm predicting it doesn't last long.
