Christmas is only one week away, and I should probably be sharing with you some candy-filled concoction that will make you swoon. Maybe tomorrow. For today, I will share with you a recipe for Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies. Perfect for gifting, bringing to the office, or munching on while you wrap gifts. Julia Child once said:
“Find something you're passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.”
Well, let’s just say I am incredibly interested in Chocolate Chip Cookies. Surely you can ramp up a standard Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe with oats or coconut (two of my favorite standby add-ins), but in this case, the flavor of the cookie itself does all the talking. The richness of the chocolate chips is enhanced and supported by the almost caramel-like flavor of the cookie. What makes this cookie dough taste so spectacular, you ask? Dark brown sugar AND brown butter. I am a firm believer that taking on a new Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is a big commitment. I love the recipe that my Mom passed down to me and I will always continue to make that recipe too (with coconut and oats of course! My favorite!) However, if you are looking for a wonderful, classic, flavorful Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that needs only chocolate chips, and cookies that are picture-perfect for gifting and sharing; look no further.
