Tips for the best cookies
Creaming the butter and sugar. Make sure you cream together the softened butter and brown sugar for at least 2-3 minutes. This helps break down the sugar crystals, and will result in an overall more delicious cookie.
Under bake your cookies. Your cookies will continue to cook on the baking sheet once they're out of the oven.
Be generous with the chocolate chips. What's a chocolate chip cookie without chocolate? Be sure to use the amount in the recipe, and top the cookies with more if desired!
