I'm SO glad I pinned these!
I'm always a sucker when a recipe states "The best" or "The perfect"....I just have to try it.
While I'm not sure they are THE "one and only" perfect chocolate chip cookie, I would definitely put it the TOP of my cookie recipes!
We had no problems finishing off a batch. They were just as I like a cookie to be...rich, thick, buttery, full of chocolate, with nice soft slightly chewy insides. I also like the touch of sea salt on top, it did bring out the flavor of the cookie even more so.
Yes, once again...I pinned it, I tried it, and I LIKED it!
