Today, me will live in the moment. Unless it’s unpleasant, in which case, me will eat a cookie.

Cookie Monster

Aaaah, the smell of freshly baked cookies. Is there anything more warm and delightful after a tough day at virtual school or a crazy day hovered over the laptop than a plate of delicious cookies?

There are so many types of cookies, from classic chocolate chip to the exotic. However, this chocolate chip cookie is not your usual. It’s made with bittersweet chocolate chips, and a touch of honey. Yes, honey, I’ve added honey for the best ever chocolate chip cookie.

Most traditional chocolate chip cookie recipes call for brown sugar. Using honey instead takes the sweetness factor to another level. I’ve been making this recipe for over ten years now, and it never disappoints. All those who have tried it agree that it’s a home run in the cookie department.

It’s a straight-forward recipe with no odd ingredients. And fresh from the oven, you’ll see that these chocolate chip cookies are yummy, delicious, and crispy and chewy, all at the same time. It’s an easy recipe to whip up spontaneously for the family since you likely have the ingredients on hand.

The one trick about this cookie is to not overbake them. Each baking sheet will cook for approximately 10 minutes (more or less depending upon your oven). I turn them around after 5 minutes because it feel this method yields a more evenly baked cookie.

Straight out of the oven these are over-the-top crazy, ridiculously-thrilling to taste. And that’s a lot to ask for a cookie! The texture balances most and chewy with a bit of crispness that creates chocolate chip cookie perfection. You’re on a different playing field with this one.

Cookies will keep in an airtight container for a week or more. But I promise, they won’t last that long. 🙂

    Much like Cookie Monster, Me Want Cookie (actually, cookie was my first word and it was all downhill from there).

    1st and foremost, love the picture of you. I liked that this cookie recipe is straight-forward without a lot of ingredients to complicate things. I have printed the recipe and will bake a batch when I dare turn on the oven.
