Chocolate Chip Supreme Cookie
“This recipe is the epitome of nostalgia for me. It’s my mom Joan’s Chocolate Chip Supreme Cookie recipe that she has perfected over the last 40 years! It is a pretty classic recipe, but there is the addition of oats that leads to a nice crunch and a balance of whole wheat and all-purpose flour for just the perfect crumb structure and moisture level. They are perfectly soft, not too sweet and loaded with chocolate chips. To me, this is one of the most simple recipes but also one of the hardest to perfect. Straight out of the oven they smell heavenly, and they are on the menu, in part, because it brings such joy to smell them being baked every day!”
