The Softest Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I finally made the perfect chocolate chip cookies! First of all, I have to tell you that I  love anything with chocolate chips. We have a friend who makes the fluffiest, softest chocolate chip cookies that my husband goes nuts over. When I try to make cookies like hers, they come out flat and not soft at all. I’m happy to say I have figured out the perfect cookie recipe now and excited to share it with you!

I thought my flat cookies must have been my oven, the cookie sheet, or the cookie fairy just didn’t like me! I have always been good at making cakes, but cookies not so much. Well, no more!

If you have ever had cookies come out flat, then you must try this recipe for the softest chocolate chip cookies! Believe me, you won’t be disappointed!
