There is something that we can all make in our sleep—something that when guests are coming over, we can whip up in a jiffy and know that it will turn out perfectly every time. Chocolate chip cookies are my go-to, reliable, crowd-pleasing winner. I can make them with my eyes closed, have the recipe memorized (it’s super easy) and always have the ingredients in my pantry.
The great thing about this recipe is that the dough is so versatile. I like mine plain … yep, no chocolate chips, nothing. My siblings and I used to ask my mom to make us “chocolate chip cookies without chocolate chips” as none of us really liked chocolate (I know … go ahead and stone us). I still always make one (ok, two) out of the batch without chocolate—otherwise I end up murdering all the cookies by just eating around the chocolate chips.
