{RECIPE} My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie!

The only chocolate chip cookie recipe you'll EVER need!

I have decided that I have the best job in the whole world. Like today. I got to make these amazing chocolate chip cookies to photograph for ya’ll. Flipside? Worst job in the world because there are always goodies around. Always! Sheesh, can’t a girl just be on a diet? Thankful for the rest of the Richland Country Club Golf Pros, because my husband is bringing you these yummies. Whew, anyway…on to the cookie.

Mega Chocolate Chip Cookies by Pizzazzerie

My brother calls them Pizzazz Cookies. I call them crack. Either way, they’re good. Not fussy cute good. Like big honkin’ bakery-style gourmet good. I actually can’t believe I haven’t shared this recipe with you sooner. I created it 5 years ago in graduate school when I was on a total mission to create the world’s best chocolate chip cookie. 293849 recipes later, I took the best element of every recipe and concocted this bad boy.

It’s crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, and totally full of yummies. Don’t fret when you see coconut as an ingredient (if you’re not a coconut fan). It just helps make the cookie moist. You can omit the nuts for allergies. You can swap in your faves (white chocolate chips, raisins, peanut butter chips, etc). Below is my version. Note that the dough is very thick so it’s really only for huge cookies (hard to make small cookies with this batter). Problem? No. You won’t want a small version of this cookie.

I used Dixie Crystals sugar because (a) it’s fabulous and (b) they are a sponsor for Mixed Conference which I’m attending in a few weeks! They are part of Bake It Forward which you can read more about here! This cookie is being entered into a little contest for the conference (my fingers are crossed that I’m a finalist!).

    Have you ever made these without nuts? I’d like to get the full experience of these cookies but one of my kids has a nut allergy…should I add something else instead?? Thanks!

    I am making these for a dear friend’s Birthday gift today….leaving out the coconut since we’re both not big fans (and let’s face it, I will be licking the bowl).
    Can’t wait to package these up….and share with her!

    We have made these numerous times now and they are always a HUGE hit! So good. We do leave out the nutmeg and coconut…just our family’s preference. Thanks for the recipe that will now be a family tradition.

    These look so good! One question – is it okay if I use non-quick oats? I don’t have the quick cooking ones. Can’t wait to make them:-) Thanks!
