We all have our favorite desserts, treats that we crave and enjoy whenever we can get them. For some people chocolate is the perfect dessert, while others prefer vanilla, fruit, or a combination of flavors. A really great dessert will contain taste, texture, and the flavors you love.
Because they are fairly simple to make and taste great, cookies have become one of the more popular desserts. One of the best things about cookies is the variety of cookies that you can choose from. No matter what tastes you prefer, there is probably a cookie you'll enjoy.

This combination of flavors and textures appeals to a lot of people, and on top of that this recipe can be easily modified to cater to your specific preferences.

It can become discouraging to make batch after batch of crispy cookies when you want them to be chewy. If your chocolate chip cookies are coming out hard, brittle, or flat instead of chewy, there are a few things you might want to try:
