I have tried many chocolate chip recipes, but this one is by far my favorite. They are golden and crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. These cookies are the best with a cold glass of milk or even crumbled onto vanilla bean ice cream. I have made them many times for family and friends, and every time, they are a crowd-pleaser!
