Chocolate chip cookies in all their variations are some of our most known and beloved cookie types! Recipes are abundant with a myriad of additives (coconut, walnuts, cherries, pecans, etc…), types of chocolate (semi-sweet, milk, peanut butter, white, etc…), and crispness preferences (crispy, chewy, pillow-soft like a cake).
