Cookie Closeup

I believe I’m obligated to include a story with this:

This recipe was recommended to us by a friend, but it’s essentially the Nestle Toll House recipe with some very small modifications and notes that we’ve come up with after making it numerous times. We’ve also found it to be way easier use a miniature ice cream scoop to make the balls of cookie dough.

These cookies come out a little crunchier than the standard, if you want a slightly more cakey version, add an extra ¼ cup flour.
