Sweet Things: Tips for the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

So I haven’t been as active on the blog front lately, I admit. A close family member of mine passed away this last week and my attention has been kind of diverted from blogging. Chocolate Chip cookies, to me, are a sort of comfort food. My mom makes them with oatmeal and that gives them more body but I love warm, gooey cookies straight out of the oven. These cookies are the best when even the next day, the chocolate chips have stayed melty and moist, making any bad day better.

I can’t give you my recipe, but I can give you tips 🙂 Look below the photo for tips you can try to be your own cookie master!

5 Tips for the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

  • Set out your butter and eggs at least four hours in advance so that they come to room temperature
  • The butter can be cut so that it will soften faster
  • Be spontaneous with your ingredients- add some rolled oats or nuts until you find your perfect combination. The perfect cookie comes with practice!
  • Use parchment paper, not aluminum foil! It is the best kind of non-stick for baked goods.
  • Eat with very cold milk 🙂
