Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Worth Craving

Marge Taggart


This is a wonderful crisp and chewy chocolate chip cookie. The secret ingredient is adding the "light corn syrup" to keep the cookies moist and also a bit chewy. The dough is a creamy texture and easy to work with, not sticky. You must follow the mixing method of directions as indicated - it is somewhat different than most chocolate chip cookie recipes. Yum!

I mixed the chocolate chip types: some semi-sweet and some Ghirardelli bittersweet. Try a variation of toffee bits and/or nuts.
