  • No chocolate chips? No problem! You can chop up a chocolate bar and have the same thing.
  • If you don't have unsalted butter, you can use salted. Just forgo adding the salt.
Expert Tips:
  • Make sure to preheat your oven!
  • Remember to set out the eggs and butter early so they can come to room temperature.
  • Don't over mix the cookies.
  • Put about 9 cookies per pan.
  • When baking, turn the cookies about halfway through their cook time to make sure each cookie browns evenly.
