5 Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes

I don’t know about you, but chocolate chip cookies are my thing. I can’t resist them. Even if they are a little too done, a little too flat, or a little too gooey (is there such a thing?)… I have to have at least two. Every time.

Depending on my mood, I usually want some different types of chocolate chip cookies. Sometimes I’m in the mood for small and chewy. Sometimes I like the greasy, big, flat ones. Sometimes I just want the perfect hot, gooey goodness. Sometimes I need a little crunch.
