Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've had these cookies bookmarked on my computer for almost a year ... shows you how often I make cookies.  I saw them all over Pinterest and on several blogs.  There's definitely a reason for all of the "face time" they received!  I'm not usually a huge "cookie girl," but I quickly devoured ate five after I made them.  Total deliciousness.  They're helping me get over my back-to-school blues and getting me excited for the holiday cookie season!  What's your favorite cookie?
Best dishes and yummy dreams!

I made this following your recipe and they turned out GREAT! I froze most of the cookie dough so we can make several batches. I hope they turn out ok. Any suggestions with the frozen dough? Cook them longer? Let them thaw first? Thanks!

I'm SO glad you enjoyed them!!! I've read that you can thaw cookie dough (but only if you need to to do to cut it).. otherwise, you can bake them frozen, but add 2 minutes to the cooking time. I've never tried it, so I'd be more likely to thaw first just in case!! xo
