Recipe Tips & Notes

  • I hardly ever measure ingredients with a food scale in my recipes, but in this one I do!  13 ounces of all-purpose flour makes a perfect cookie. I’ve tried to measure that in cups, but I can’t get it exactly right. But if you don’t have a food scale– it’s somewhere close to 2 1/2 cups of packed flour or 2 3/4 cups of flour using the ‘spoon and sweep’ method.
  • You can use any kind of chips you want in this recipe, but I’m here to tell you that the VERY BEST chocolate chips are these Guittard Milk Chocolate Chips or (a very close second) Godiva Milk Chocolate Chips.
    • I find the Guittard chips on Amazon or at World Market (I’m on the East coast, but back when I lived out West I found these chocolate chips at most stores).
    • I found the Godiva chips at Target.
