New dessert recipes (especially cookies) are tough to come by in my house because of the undying love that Kyle has for the Nestle’s Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I made the famous chocolate chip cookie recipe (fondly nicknamed BFCCC) and he almost had a heart attack because I was trying a new recipe. I wasn’t trying to replace his favorite – I merely wanted to try something new. It didn’t fly and all I got was a turned up nose to both the raw dough (which Kyle prefers) and the cooked cookie.

So back to the original recipe I go, and I do have to admit that I love it more than any other chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ve come across as well (so far!). These pictures makes them look hard and crunchy, but by making them bigger (with an ice cream scoop), they turn out soft and gooey. When I make them like this, I cook them an additional 6-9 minutes while carefully watching them towards the end.
