So my mom has been making this chocolate chip cookie recipe for as long as I can remember and it's become infamous. People beg me to make "the" chocolate chip cookies. There is something different that sets these 1000 times above the rest... I mean, a good cookie is a good cookie but these are better than the best. And I swear I'm not biased because I grew up on them, people hunt me down for the recipe after trying them!
The biggest difference between these and most other cookie recipes is that you melt the butter. Completely liquid. No softening or creaming of the butter for these. And I'm not a scientist so I don't understand completely how that affects the taste/baking process, but it does and it's a great thing!
It also means you can make them on the fly, no waiting around for butter to soften.
Oxo reached out to me awhile back introducing me to the Cookies for Kids' Cancer campaign that they do and for every blog post dedicated to the campaign they would donate $100 to the charity. Obviously, I couldn't pass that up. So I finally have an excuse to share this amazing cookie recipe and help support this charity in one go!
These are gooey and chewy with perfect saltiness and brown sugary-ness. (Let me know if/when you make them!)
