In the Kitchen: The BESTEST Chocolate Chip cookies

These are easily my favorite chocolate chip cookies.
If I make them and take them somewhere guaranteed someone will ask for the recipe!
The BESTEST Chocolate Chip cookies

Three important things about them:
1. Make SURE you only have Chipits Pure milk Chocolate chips. (I love substituting no name brands in recipes but in this one it won't fly!)
2. Do NOT overbake them. They are best when you take them out as soon as the edges just barely get brown.
3. You will eat a Lot of these. Soooo be prepared :)

How to:

Try them. And you can thank me later.

PS. I've decided I love food photography. Hence the three photographs of ONE kind of cookie :) Ah the things that bring me pleasure!

PPS. After taking all these shots my kids and I ate a whole pile of these lovely cookies.

PPPS. I think it'd be fun to take pictures for a cookbook. Or a restaurant.

PPPPS. Which picture of the cookies is your favorite?

As if chocolate chip cookies need persuasion to be eaten! I don't think I could choose my favourite picture. I love the lighting in the first one, the plate in the second one and LOVE the fabric in the third. They are all fabulous as your photography always is!

We have a favorite cookie recipe that we use all the time - but I'm going to try to make these since they look so good! I like the last picture - maybe because of the table cloth with the matching milk. Cute!
