Best Ever Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies: Keeper or Stinker?

Gooey-chocolatey-sugarified-yumminess. That is what chocolate chip cookies are and there is just no getting around it (can you tell they are a favorite of mine?) Many recipes have striven to perfect this delectable dessert so let's see how this Pinterest find matches up:

Best Ever Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is simple and has one unique ingredient that I have not found in too many cookie recipes: corn starch. It added a little smoothness to the texture and is, I think, where the extra chewiness of these cookies comes from. 
The cookies tasted delicious, though I'm not sure that they beat my all time favorite (Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies). In the recipe it says not to cook them longer than ten minutes but mine definitely needed to stay cozy in the oven a while longer than that. I think it is due to an altitude difference so be careful about the cooking time or you'll end up with too-chewy cookies.

Bottom Line

  • Easy
  • Chewy
  • Very Tasty
  • Not greasy
  • Cooking time varies
  • Closely watch the cooking time, mine needed to cook a few minutes longer than the recipe read but remember that all cookies bake a slight amount more on the baking sheet after they are pulled out.
  • Super flat, spread out cookies? be sure you aren't greasing your baking sheet if it isn't asked for and cool and wash the sheets between batches. Or you can chill the dough a little before baking.

  1. So glad you guys liked the recipe! Thanks for reading my blog and thanks for the review!

  2. Rachelle!
    Your blog is the cute one!! I'm so jealous! haha
    You can tell that you've put a lot of time and thought into what you post. Love it! :)
    How have you been? I haven't talked to you in awhile
    I hope everything is well.

    1. Thank you Amber! I've been great, just keeping busy mostly. Have you done any link parties?

    2. No, I haven't and to be completely honest I don't know what that is.. lol

  3. Link parties are um...parties on someone's blog where a bunch of other bloggers link to one of their own blogs pages. If you go to my link partyin' page you can click on the links and find a bunch of parties I link up to but most of those are craft ones. I'm sure you could find more beauty related ones. Those parties really help get more people on your blog and are an awesome way to find other great stuff.

  4. Thanks!! Well, after I found a few link parties what would I do? just post something on that person's page or.. what?

    1. On their link party post at the bottom there will be a link you can click saying something like "link up!" or "it's your turn". You click on it and it will show you what to do. Just be sure you read that specific parties rules (most have some). Anyways, it sounds more complicated than it is.

  5. Ok thanks! I'll see what I can find. :)
