I have one more recipe to share today. This one I did not find on Pinterest, but my grandmother told me to try (which is fitting considering the name of the cookie). I have NEVER found the "perfect chocolate chip cookie" until now. Our family's favorite recipe has always been this one (the very first recipe on the page, titled "Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie"), which has an inclusion of oat flour in the recipe. The cookie is incredible, but sometimes you want a pure-flavored chocolate chip cookie without the taste of oats. Enter Jamie's "Grandma's Chocolate Chip Cookies". Oh my goodness! This now my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe.
-I ended up adding 1/4 cup additional flour to the dough.
-I also baked the cookies at 375 degrees then removed them from the oven to rest on the pan for 5 minutes before cooling completely on cooling racks. Although Jamie (from jamiecooksitup.blogspot.com) lives in Utah I still had a problem with the cookies coming out flat (a problem I typically only have when trying an out-of-staters recipe).
-I used "Private Selection" brand chocolate drops which I purchased at my local Kroger-owned store (Smith's). They are cheaper than Guittard, but are still a very large chunk of chocolate like the Guittard chips are. I love that these are extraordinarily large chips and most importantly, that even the milk chocolate drops melt (something I can't say for most milk chocolate chips). I used 3/4 bag each of milk and semi-sweet chocolate drops.
