Best-Ever Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

The other day I managed to rock both of the kids to sleep at the same time for their afternoon naps, and I totally felt like supermom. I really wanted to take a nap as well and cuddle with both of my babies at the same time. Yet, I felt the sweet urge to bake something scrumptious and baked a batch of my freezer stash of the best chewy chocolate chip cookies ever. I’m totally guilty of not sharing this recipe for awhile now because they disappear fast and don’t last enough for me to take a food photo. They are that GOOD.

It’s the cookie of all cookies. The chocolate chip cookie is a timeless classic that everyone loves. Everyone has a favorite recipe, or go-to brand that you will always purchase, but there can never be enough chocolate chip cookie recipes in your life. THIS chocolate chip cookie will complete your lifelong search for the perfect chewy cookie. In my personal opinion, soft and chewy is THE only way to enjoy a chocolate chip cookie. They are similar to any cookie recipe you have seen before, but the magic lies within the cornstarch. It acts as a thickening agent and makes the cookies really gooey and soft. OOOOHHHHH YEAH!!!

These best ever chewy chocolate chip cookies will change your life FOR-EVER!
