These Might Just Be the Best Cookies You’ll Ever Eat

mmmmhmmm. My friends, this is it. Do you recall the best cookie that you have ever sunk your teeth into? Well, I do, like it was just yesterday…practically it was. The perfect cookie has perfect elements: chewy, soft, packed full of goodness and delight, and there is always a secret ingredient. This, this cookie-wonderful-package-of-amazing, has it all.

Luckily, I had imprisoned a few innocent citizens and told them that they had to stay until they had tried one of these. The recipe said it was the best ever, but if I didn’t have people agree with me…then were they really the best ever?

And, after about an hour, my oven let out a little ring and my kidnapp-ees had fresh, warm, and gooey chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven. Success. Actually, so much success that they wanted more…and more….and more! I think they liked them ;)


 So I commissioned Jared Smith to help bake these cookies. (I really think he was only in it for the credit ;) But, he did everything to perfection, except scoop the cookies into perfect round shapes on the cookie sheet. After an angry look, I kindly took the scoop out of his hand and finished it myself.

 I’ve never heard of a recipe with this much goodness it it. Do you see the amount of chocolate housed in one of these? After one of these cookies, your diet will fail. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

 The dough, oh the dough…after those chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes…I really felt like it was my duty to eat this dough.
