Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Aside from pizza, there’s also been a serious cookie problem going on around here lately. The problem: I keep baking cookies, and they keep disappearing. Now how does that happen? I blame Martha Stewart. And not just for giving me an unhealthy obsession with attempting to fold fitted sheets into perfect squares. No, I also blame her for making such delicious cookie recipes. Which I then have to bake. And eat. Repeatedly.

These are good. Really good. Really, really good. I don’t think there’s much I love more than a perfect chocolate chip cookie. It doesn’t get much better or more simplistic than that.
