It’s no secret that I am on a quest for the best chocolate chip cookie recipe there is. (You can read about my two previous posts regarding the subject here and here.) For a quick recap, I’ve made it one of my life’s missions to perfect the chocolate chip cookie and I have been on a quest for the perfect recipe since high school. Although my quest is ongoing (I think I will always be on the hunt for the next best version), this recipe is my favorite so far!
As I mentioned in my last post, Cinnamon Ice Cream, my family had a celebration for my brother’s confirmation and I was in charge of dessert. I figured this was the perfect opportunity to try a new chocolate chip cookie recipe. And what better place to find a new recipe to try than Pinterest!
The caption for these cookies read “The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies” so obviously I had to try them. Plus, the recipe is from Williams-Sonoma. Meaning, they are definitely going to be winners because because everything from Williams-Sonoma is amazing! Seriously, I could spend gobs of money and hours in that store!
I am referring to these chocolate chip cookies as the loaded because I added more chocolate chips than I normally use. See, my family and I (mainly my mom, sister and I) are fans of chocolate chip cookies without an overwhelmingly amount of chocolate chips. I even occasionally make chocolate chip cookies sans chocolate chips which, if you haven’t tried this, you’re missing out and most definitely should soon! However, I think what makes this recipe so good is that it is loaded with chocolate chips… and I love it!
Being on this quest, I’ve tried recipes that are great, decent/ok, and flat out just not good. This recipe, though, this recipe is a keeper! These might become my new staple, go-to chocolate chip cookies! What’s your go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe? Help me on my quest to make the perfect chocolate chip cookie! Enjoy 🙂
