BAKERY STYLE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES — Big, soft and chewy, these amazing chocolate chip cookies are just like the ones you get at local bakeries, grocery stores and coffee shops.
If you love those big, chewy chocolate chip cookies from your local bakery or coffee shop, then you’re really going to love making your own Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies at home.
I’ve tried a lot of chocolate chip cookie recipes in my life, and I have to say, this version is my new favorite!
And I’m super picky about what I consider the perfect chocolate chip cookie, so that’s really saying something. But I do believe these cookies are just about perfect.
I’m of the opinion that when it comes to indulging in sweets, you just can’t go wrong with a good chocolate chip cookie. Especially with a tall glass of ice cold milk.
These cookies are a little crispy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle, and they stay soft and chewy for days. That is, if they last that long.
There are a few things that make these chocolate chip cookies extra special and delicious. The first is the butter–it’s melted and then cooled, which results in an extra tender, chewy texture.
And instead of just one kind of chocolate chip, these cookies feature chocolate chunks and mini chocolate chips. I don’t know why, but the contrast of two kinds of chips makes these cookies taste even better!
I do recommend making these cookies big. I use a 1/4 cup ice cream scoop for mine, and it’s the perfect size. Bakery style cookies are always big, after all.
You can always share your cookie if it’s too big, but the size is part of the fun! And definitely don’t skip refrigerating the dough. It’s hard to be patient, but it’s worth it!
These cookies didn’t last long at my house (not even 48 hours). Next time I’ll double the batch and be sure to stow some away in the freezer for later.
