Chocolate Chip Cookies

chocolate chip cookies

I’m still on the look-out for my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (I’m open for suggestions!), so this was another attempt at finding a recipe that I could call my own. Or at least consider my “go to” for chocolate chip cookies.
So this may be a bit of a downer. I know, you’re thinking “how can this be a downer? We’re talking chocolate chip cookies!”. Maybe “downer” is too strong of a word, while these are yummy chocolate chip cookies they are by no means show stopping. But we certainly had no difficulty finishing them off, if you catch my drift.

I liked the cinnamon-y-ness (word?) of this version, but the texture wasn’t what I was looking for. They were a little too much on the crispy side, and while I prefer a crispier cookie (burnt sugar anyone?) over soft & chewy, these were a little too crispy for my tastes. I tried baking them for less time, but I wasn’t able to get them off the cookie sheet without them falling apart.
I still contend that you should give ‘em a shot, maybe you’ll have better results that I!
