This cookie is for the thicker, softer, chewy chocolate chip lover. This is the kind of cookie I love to eat warm, when the chips are still melting. Keep a bag of these in the freezer and microwave a couple at a time for a just out of the oven tasty snack. Try it with a variety of different ingredients including raisins, chocolate chips and walnuts; white chocolate, apricots and pistachios or even peppermint candy and chocolate chips.

Tip from Tate's

You can scoop out all the cookies and bake right away, refrigerate and bake the next day, same time and temperature or freeze the scooped out dough on a sheet pan, then bag them in a Ziploc bag to bake a few at a time, directly from the freezer, but bake at 325 degrees.
