It's no secret that I love a good cookie.
They're easy to make, the flavor combinations are nearly endless, and they're delicious. So, there's a lot to love about cookies.
These Bakery Style Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are thick, soft chocolate chocolate chip cookies. I use semi-sweet chocolate chips because they're my go-to for most cookie recipes, but bittersweet or milk chocolate would work instead.
Since they start with cold butter, the dough keeps its shape well when baked – no chilling needed. It also means that this is a great recipe to make when that cookie urge strikes and you don't want to wait for the butter to soften or the dough to chill.
