Chocolate Chip Cookies the Old-Fashioned Way

Every now and then, our values and our ability to love and empathize are tested. I had to dig really deep these past couple of days to comfort myself and remind myself that my strength comes from loving and accepting.

In an effort to uplift my spirits, I eased myself out of bed and went back to doing the little things that bring me joy, like baking these old-fashioned chocolate chip cookies.

When I decide to bake chocolate chip cookies, I can’t help but anticipate that first bite into a warm, chewy cookie. The chocolate will stick to the roof of my mouth, and then I’ll wash it down with a cold glass of milk.

I’ll feel blissful because my senses are overwhelmed in a wonderfully pleasant way, and I’ll wonder why I don’t bake them more often. My sister will agree with me, then proceed to pack a ton of cookies into ziplock bags to take home with her. I can’t blame her.

I really like making my chocolate chip cookies with chopped chocolate because [easyazon_link identifier=”B009RVKB7A” locale=”US” tag=”monpetitfour-20″]chocolate bars[/easyazon_link] tend to melt better than chocolate chips (which means extra gooey chocolate!). Sometimes, however, I find it easier and more nostalgic to use [easyazon_link identifier=”B00932F6Y6″ locale=”US” tag=”monpetitfour-20″]chocolate morsels[/easyazon_link]. There’s just something so classic and darling about a cookie studded with those little chocolate peaks. 

There’s also the fact that it’s much easier to throw in the morsels rather than chop up your own chocolate. Sometimes making cookies just needs to be a really easy process.

Since this week has been all about finding comfort and solace, classic seems the way to go. These cookies are incredibly chewy and just full of chocolate chips.

If you’re like me and prefer your chocolate chip cookies heavy on the chocolate chips, then these are for you! I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do. Spread the love and cookies!

  1. Wow. . these cookies are incredible! I was a bit sketpic when I noticed there wasn’t any shortening in the recipe and only 1/2 cup butter but these are actually waaaaaay way way way better than any kind I’ve made before with those ingredients. I give these a 10 out of a 10!! This batch won’t last long!!

  2. I LOVE this recipe. I double this recipe because these cookies don’t last long in our home. I make them two or three times a month. So good!

  3. This recipe has restored my faith in my ability to make chocolate chip cookies! Mine (typical toll house recipe) always turned out flat as pancakes. I felt like an idiot every time I made them. These looked tasty sand tasted better. Thank you!

    • Hello! They’d be great with walnuts in them! 🙂 Adding walnuts would actually make them taste similar to the Double Tree Hotel’s famous chocolate chip cookies too! 😉
