TWD: "My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies"

Short post so I can get it posted before Tuesday becomes Wednesday.

This week's recipe for us Tuesdays With Dorie bakers were Dories Best Chocolate Chip Cookies....and wow were these ever good....I love a crispy cookie--and chocolate chip to boot? Bring it.

I made mine with store bought chips---but only because I really wanted to size up the cookie--and to me I need to try all batters with the same chips to really measure up which 'cookie' I like.

I did however use the finely chopped walnuts called for, and I am not one for nuts in my cookies--but using such finely chopped walnuts was a welcome addition!

I would make these again...and again....the only caveat is to chill the dough prior to baking-I had not done that and these suckers spread out BIG time...I think I'd gain a chewier cookie if I chilled the dough for awhile first, but like I said I loves me a crispy cookie, so I had no problem polishing off way too many of these!

Thanks to Kait of Kait's Plate for this week's recipe pick! :)

They look great! I baked some from frozen and they didn't spread as much. I like mine chewy, though, so I tried to underbake these a bit.

I had no idea that you like crispy cookies! You think you know someone . . . I do not particularly care for crispy cookies, but I still enjoyed these. They seemed to have that crisp on the edges, chewy in the center thing going on - something for everyone. Yours look great!
