The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies I’ve Ever Eaten

Oh my goodness, I found a new cookie recipe thanks to pinterest and these are the BEST chocolate chip cookies I have ever eaten! Seriously. They are soft and chewy and chocolatey and oh so good… and even better, they stay that way for a couple days, if they last that long! These cookies go so fast. I have made them twice now, and learned a few things the first time I made them and adjusted my recipe accordingly. Ok, now that I have your mouth watering, I’ll get on to the recipe. Oh, and just a word of warning, the dough has to chill for at least two hours, so these aren’t quite an impulse bake like I usually do.
