Basic Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Hi! My name is Chloe. I always loved to bake from the first time I made Christmas cookies in my grandmother’s huge kitchen. We would make probably 100 sugar cookies every year and eat all of them before New Year’s. So through that great family tradition, I started on my journey to perfecting my family chocolate chip cookie recipe, to have cookies that are truly my own. 
The first time I made the cookies, I followed the recipe down to the nail, and through making that recipe a dozen times, I decided to make a twist on the classic cookie recipe. Each month I will post a new version of the cookie recipe, and my experience making them. You may also see the occasional cupcake, cake or confection. I hope you enjoy this long and delicious journey that is baking.  If you have questions, contact me at: chloe@chloescookiecorner.com
