Chocolate Chip Cookies, Now Hype Free

The most difficult choice when making chocolate chips cookies used to be with nuts or not. I always opted for not. Nowadays you've got so many decisions to make- semisweet, bittersweet, cocoa percentages, brown sugar, browned butter, to refrigerate or not, if so then for how long. Truly I find it exhausting. Do we really need all these criteria to come between us and a warm chocolate chip cookie in our hands? I think not, and it seems like Dorie Greenspan agrees.
This weeks TWD is My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies and they live up to their name. No fancy ingredients, no chilling periods, just mix, scoop and bake.
Thanks Kait for your pick this week and thanks to Dorie keeping it real with a simple rendition of a classic favorite.

I agree--chocolate chip cookies should be easy. Yours look fantastic! I enjoyed these, but I put pecans in.

Who would have guessed that the humble chocolate chip cookie has gone designer on us. I totally agree with you...keep it simple!

I'm with you...keep it simple. Those always seem to be the best. These were too thin for me, but yours look great!

I'm a traditionalist, too! Sometimes I add nuts but that's about as crazy as I get. Glad you loved them.
