Your quest for the best ever chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe is over. This fabulous chocolate chip cookie is crisp on the outside, soft, and chewy on the inside. Perfection!
Awhile back, in December, when I was in the middle of my baking frenzy, I ran out of granulated sugar. I only had about a half of a cup left and needed more to make chocolate chip cookies. I remember reading somewhere you can substitute light brown sugar for all of some of the white granulated sugar; so that’s what I did. I hoped for the best and baked the batch. Best decision ever! The cookies turned out light and crisp on the outside; soft and chewy on the inside and every bite had a chocolate chip. I used the mini chocolate chips, personal preference of mine.
A few other tips: I have found that when baking cookies, it’s best to have the butter at room temperature, unless the recipe calls for it be cold. This goes for the eggs, too. Back to the butter, always unsalted butter, (unless the recipe specifically tells you to use salted) because most cookie recipes will have salt as one of the ingredients.
