We recently had friends stay with us for the weekend. As they arrived I was finishing up making a giant batch of our favorite chocolate chip cookies. I doubled the recipe and had the BIGGEST bowl of cookie dough known to man sitting on the counter. We questioned if we’d actually go through all of them before they went stale. Let me tell you, it wasn’t a problem.
Those cookies were enjoyed for 2 days and all 7 dozen were gobbled up. We brought them in a big container with us to the beach, I kept them in the car for outings, and served them for dessert each night. If the kids wanted a snack they knew where to go—my cookie jar.
The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies to Store In a Cookie Jar
These chocolate chip cookies are soft, but do not break in half when stacked. They are the perfect cookie to store in a cookie jar. What I really love about them is that they STAY FRESH for a few days. Some cookies become crumbly on day 2 and start to break in the cookie jar. Not these. These are just as soft on day 2 and 3.
I make them with a combination of milk chocolate chips and semi sweet chocolate chips for the perfect balance of sweetness.
Cook These Cookies Until Golden
Some cookies are best when undercooked slightly and allowed time to sit in the baking sheet to firm up. Our cookie jar chocolate chip cookies can bake in the oven until golden, and are still soft. We prefer cooking them until they start to brown (12-14 minutes). This makes for a soft, chewy and milk dunkable cookie.
