From Chewy to Crisp: 12 Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes for Every Taste

Of all the cookies in the world (and there are many to choose from), there is a special place in our hearts for chocolate chip cookies.

Try your hand at making the perfect cookie as a simple after dinner dessert to serve alongside ice cream or milk or package these portable treats for edible gifts and party favors.
