Is there anything more universally comforting than freshly baked chocolate chip cookies? Probably not. I have been making these particular cookies (a variation of the traditional Toll House recipe) ever since I was twelve years old. They are exactly what a chocolate chip cookie should be: crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside, and oozing with little pockets of warm semi-sweet chocolate. When I have them on hand, which I usually do, I like to also add chocolate chunks to bump up the chocolate flavor. These are the perfect thing to bake to welcome someone to the neighborhood, for a bake sale, potluck, or as just a decadent after school snack. No matter where I bring these cookies, they are always the very first thing to go.
