easy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe Tips

Some tips to always getting the best cookies are:

Use butter that is softened and DO NOT OVER MIX! Over mixing butter causes hard cookies. Mix butter and the entire dough as little as possible. 

Also using a dark brown sugar, a best brown sugar or demerara brown sugar makes for a better tasting cookie as well. 

If you do not want oats in your cookies you can just increase the flour by 1/3 cups and leave the oats out. 

If you use salted butter like Britt does then you may want to omit using the extra salt in the recipe!

It's all about the chocolate chips
Chocolate Chips

Chocolate chips can make or break your cookies! Britt's favorite chocolate chips are these semi-sweet chocolate chips and chunks! Not too sweet but not to dark either! 

Another option is to get a bulk piece of chocolate that it in a big chunk and then grate the chocolate off of that! It makes for melty chewy cookies!
