Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Any time I bake chocolate chip cookies, they disappear faster than my patience at tax season (if you own a business, you’ll surely understand). Needless to say these chocolate chip cookies are a fan favourite in our home. While I’ve modified my chocolate chip cookie recipe numerous times over the years, this one may in fact take that top spot They’re chewy chocolaty perfection. Also, the salt flakes are listed as optional but I highly recommend adding them. They add just the right amount of salty deliciousness needed to balance the sweet.
