What can you do to elevate your chocolate chip cookies? Well, there are several things that I’ve figured out recently to make the PERFECT chocolate chip cookies: One, is topping them with sea salt before baking. The salt really brings out the chocolate. Next, adding cornstarch. This makes the inside super chewy with a slight crisp on the edges. Another big one, is chilling the dough before they bake (so they don’t spread too thin). One more? Using 2 different kinds of chocolate. My picks were semi-sweet & dark. I know, cray-zay.
I made these for one of our close friends, who might have a slight obsession with chocolate chip cookies. He said they were the best he’s ever had, which trust me, is everything. Sometimes the most common & traditional foods, like chocolate chip cookies, are the hardest to perfect. These are absolute perfection.
