The quest to find the greatest chocolate chip cookie recipe on the planet continues! But if there was going to be a winner…. I love everything about how these cookies came out.

Eric loves chocolate so I decided to make him choc chip cookies to take to the Tennis. Who else do you turn to when you think of scrumptious cookies? Martha Stewart of course! Whisk together flour and baking soda in a bowl. Put butter and sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
You can get a pretty good idea of the texture of these cookies by taking a good look at the photos. They are definitely not a substantial, thick cookie with crunch. Instead, these chocolate chip cookies take on a chewy texture, and they softer instead of crunchy. If chewy chocolate chip cookies are your thing, then this is the chocolate chip cookie recipe for you! These cookies stay nice and soft and chewy! The variety of chocolate chips you choose to use for your chewy chocolate chip cookies is completely up to you.
