As you might already know by now, I was blessed with a baker mom. So naturally, my brother and I grew up around all sorts of incredibly scrumptious goodies (think brownies, banana bread, panna cotta, crepes, and MORE!) One of my all-time favorite, however, is still her classic chocolate chip cookie recipe! And so I’ve dubbed this the BEST bakery-style chocolate chip cookies! Just ask anyone who has tried it, and they’ll tell you that these are seriously out-of-this-world!

Crispy edges and chewy centers. And just the perfect blend of sweet and buttery. Just try it once, and you’ll never need another recipe again! Finally, this is a foolproof recipe you can make to replicate that ridiculously delicious chocolate chip cookies you find in bakeries!

For a dairy-free version, you can use plant-based butter and dairy-free chocolate chips (like these!)
