Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are arguably America’s favorite cookie (though we don’t think there’s actually much argument). But what constitutes a great chocolate chipper is the subject of passionate feelings and debate. For some, crispy edges and some crunch are attractive attributes, but these cookies are not for them. No, these are for the staunch supporters of the chewy, the tender, the oh-so-soft cookie that has the classic toffee-flavored batter studded with plenty of chocolate chips. Even among our editors and test kitchens, the texture preference makes its divisions, and those among them who are Team Soft and Chewy stand by this recipe as their one-and-only preferred choice. The ingredients (and the amounts used) that were calibrated in our test kitchens will reliably produce pillowy, meltingly tender results so you can count on getting the exact kind of cookie you want, every time. https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/soft-and-chewy-chocolate-chip-cookies/6e282e97-208c-4449-bce2-689f99b04f66?utm_source=onespot&utm_medium=email&otm_medium=onespot&otm_source=inbox&otm_campaign=Betty+Crocker&otm_content=TBSP_41471301&otm_click_id=09acaf437c6e51340ac8a3b91ff0b2ef&os_ehash=ABBFBCC4-27E3-4A46-9822-E25846F2647E
