  • 333 granulated sugar
  • 5 medium eggs

    • These are the best chocolate chip cookies - they bake up perfectly golden every time - no spreading, no burnt edges and no raw cookie dough. I freeze them in small logs that will yield about 12 cookies or enough that will fit on one pan. Using these freezer dough cookies mean I only bake a few cookies at a time rather than a giant batch. So we can easily limit our consumption. Love this recipe!
