Cookie Time :: Hunka Chunka Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

From Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey Treats for Kids by Jill O'Connor

I bet that if you go back through the archives you’ll find 10 posts about cookie time.  But this is it.  The definitive chocolate chip cookie.  I finally went to the source.  You know who knows about cookies?  10 year olds (though I could be a year or two off on that… she’s pretty mature and I kind of still think of myself as not far off of 10 so it’s hard to say).  Awesome 10 year old neighbors that are handy in the kitchen and can write out a recipe too.  You have one of those, right?

Honestly, I liked my chocolate chip cookie recipe but it had orange zest in it and it was too flat for Ben’s liking.  We all agree though that these are the best true chocolate chippers.  You can find the original recipe here but the version that I was given calls for 2 2/3 cups of chocolate chips and 1/3 cup of toffee bits so that’s what I used and it’s a delicious variation.  I’m telling you that girl knows what she’s talking about.  Best cookies ever!

Also, I had no idea that there was so much gas station bathroom lore out there.  You guys are awesome.
