Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

oatmeal cookies-43

There are some things in life that are perfect in the simplest of ways. Chocolate chips cookies are definitely one of those things. There is nothing quite like a fresh batch of good chocolate chip cookies. It may be cliche, but who can’t help but love them?! With that in mind, I have been working on this recipe for a while. I really wanted it to be perfect! These are what I consider to be the ultimate chocolate chip cookies.

They call for vegetable oil which creates a cakey cookie. If you like crunchy/flatter cookie substitute for all butter. There are couple secrets that set these cookies apart:

1.) Lemon juice – adds chewiness and softness

2.) Cinnamon – It adds a special hint of flavor that gives the cookies a little something extra.

3.) Lightly tapping/dropping the pan of cookies (right out of the oven) on the counter. This helps the cookie distribute evenly. It makes them extra chewy!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Set aside.-148


Preheat oven to 350 and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, beat the vegetable oil, sugar, and butter together until light and fluffy

Bake 10-12 minutes


Tap or gently drop cookie sheets on your countertop to evenly distribute cookies (This will help them even out as they cool!) Allow them to cool for about 5 minutes before moving to cooling rack.
