My husband is a serious chocolate chip cookie addict and is very particular about them too.
This super easy recipe has made midnight cookie making sessions less nightmarish when the hubs is panicking because he's run out of his weekly cookie stash.
Does this happen at your house? This recipe features only 4 ingredients that I usually have on hand already so its a total winner.
This is a tried and true recipe that I've been making for quite some time now, you can even swap out some chocolate chips for nuts or do half and half.
Matter of fact, my husband's favorite combo is chocolate chips, white chips and walnuts in these. I've found that you can reasonably swap around 1 cup instead of chocolate chips such as chopped nuts, etc.
The end result is a seriously freakin delish cookie, its shocking really. I'll personally continue avoiding baking with a million ingredients whenever humanly possible... its admittedly not my strong suit in any way shape or form.
You'll definitely want to keep an eye on these cookies while they are baking up and I definitely strongly recommend using parchment paper when baking, the bottom tends to crisp up very quickly. Since I started using the paper, the cookies have really improved greatly.
Once you nail your baking time, these cookies just might be the most amazing soft and scrumptious cookies ever.
I'm updating to add that there are two measurements that I've been liking for these.
¼ cup batter for each cookie and press them down and they come out extra large.
2 Tablespoons for each cookie, roll into balls and bake that way, which come out fat and chunky.
If you have a chocolate craving, these are calling out to you!
Can you hear them?

Substituted with almond butter, coconut sugar and sugar free chocolate chips for a sugar free version and they came out amazing! I also put some dried coconut flakes on a few to test it out and they were delicious 😋 Cooked for about 13 minutes. Next time will add nuts as well. Thanks for the recipe!!

These were awful. Even after baking for the maximum amount of time (13 minutes) they tasted like raw cookie dough.

what can i use to replace peanut butter

@kyra, sorry, but peanut butter is the only thing I’ve had the best success with. Everything else is trial and error. Hope that helps.

These did not come out for me, was very oily. Used a no name brand creamy peanut butter. Should have I used jiffy? Would try these again.

@JoAnn jardine, Hi JoAnne, so sorry that happened. I certainly suppose if the peanut butter is extra oily that could happen. As long as you didn't swap any of the other ingredients, you should have good luck with Jiffy. Let me know how it works out!

Just made these today and they are amazing! I have made a similar almond butter blondie bar but your cookies are even better and made with even less ingredients!
