Nothing says summer like chocolate chip cookies! Add some vanilla ice cream, make a sandwich and I don’t know that it could get much better than that. This is my secret to chewy cookies (even after they cool). Originally posted October 2013. Enjoy!
I’m not a fan of the crispy chocolate chip cookie. I like em chewy, just the way they come out of the oven. I am a big fan of the classic Nestle Toll House recipe but for one thing – they get crispy when they cool. I would still eat them of course. But I always wished they would stay chewy.
Until one day, something magical happened.
As I went to make cookies a few months ago I realized we only had bread flour. Because I was already into the process of mixing, I decided to throw caution to the wind and use it instead of the all-purpose flour the recipe called for.
My result? Perfectly chewy cookies that STAY CHEWY even after they cool! I love them. My husband loves them and I am so happy with the results I just had to share! That is the only change I made to the recipe on the back of the chocolate chips bag, but I typed up the recipe here in case you want to try it for yourself. I’d love to hear how you like them!
