This is the only treat my hubby ever asks me to make. I think he ♥'s these cookies more than me. But I dont blame him. They are soft, chocolatey, vanilla-ee, deliciousness. My SIL Christine gave me this recipe about 5 years ago, and since then it's the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I have made. One of the tricks to these cookies is the baking time. You should ONLY bake them for 9-10 minutes, tops. They will seem like their not fully cooked, but they are. Trust me. Once you take them out of the oven, just leave them alone. No need to transfer them to a cooling rack. Let them just sit on the baking sheet to relax, and they'll be ready to pop in your mouth in about five to ten minutes. Grab a big glass of milk, and take a bite of that warm cookie. It will melt in your mouth!
