Is there anything better than a homemade cookie?

Ooh, wait. What about a homemade cookie, straight out of the oven, washed down with a glass of cold milk?

We’re getting hungry just thinking about it.

But here’s the thing: When it comes to cookies, they’re all pretty good, but they were not all created equally. A pre-packaged grocery store cookie just doesn’t hold a candle to something made from scratch.

As the author of this story, one year I spent a whole summer investigating and trying out a bunch of chocolate chip cookie recipes in hopes of discovering what really does make for the all-time BEST cookie. (Apparently I had a lot of time on my hands back then).

I thought now would be the perfect time to share seven tips I found along the way, if you’re looking to impress a family member, or you’re just like me -- overwhelmed by all the options online, wanting to narrow it down and find the best recipe the internet can offer. Here goes!

Make sure you have all the freshest ingredients.
