Chocolate chip cookies must be one of the most baked recipes out there. At any bake sale or potluck you will usually see at least a couple of plates of chocolate chip cookies. I had proof of this just a couple of weeks ago, when 2 out of 15 guests at my book swap brought chocolate chip cookies.
Our fabulous Cookie Carnival hostess, Kate, selected a chocolate chunk cookie for this month’s cookie. The Ultimate Chewy and Soft Chocolate Chunk Cookies recipe comes from the cook book In the Sweet Kitchen: The Definitive Baker’s Companion by Regan Daley. I do not own this cook book, but based upon this cookie recipe and the very positive reviews on Amazon, I will most likely pick it up at some point in the future.
I used half bittersweet chocolate and half semi-sweet chocolate. The cookies were soft and chewy as advertised and were great straight out of the oven with a glass of milk. They were quickly gobbled up by all who came into contact with them. This may just be my new go-to chocolate chip/chunk cookie recipe!
