Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

In case you missed the memo, May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Day

There are a bunch of weird, food-related holidays out there: National Egg Nog Day is December 24. That makes sense. 

National Fried Chicken day is July 6. That makes sense, too as I'm sure many people take fried chicken on a picnic in July. 

December 7 is National Cotton Candy Day. I don't get that one because cotton candy is usually around in the summer.

Enough of that... I didn't make these cookies because it was a chocolate chip holiday. I made them because Donna had them on her blog a few days ago and they looked really good... chock full of chips and bumpy. I don't like flat chocolate chip cookies, which is what I always get when I use the recipe on the bag of chocolate chips.
After baking Donna's cookies, I'll never bake another flat chocolate chip cookie again! These are crunchy on the outside and nice and chewy on the inside. 
I made a few changes to the recipe and used half whole wheat flour and half AP flour. I also added about 1/4 cup sliced almonds that I had in the freezer. These are the best! Thanks, Donna!

You can print the recipe here.


  1. Mmmm...these look very delicious! I love chew chocolate chip cookies too. I would love to try. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I saw these on Donna's blog, too. Hers and yours look like a great ccc!

  3. I just found out that it was National CCC Day and am so angry that I missed it! Well. Always time for belated CCC Day. These look fantastic!

  4. I am so thrilled that you liked them Karen!! Thank you so much for the kind mention and the enerous link back to my site. Yours look fabulous and I love the addition of the almonds.

  5. I didn't know it was National Chocolate Chip day until today so my post was a day late, but you can bet I'll never forget the date again!

    Your cookies look fabulous... and make my sweet tooth itch.

  6. Oh no I missed it! Guess I'll have to double up to make up for my being so tardy in celebrating...heehee

  7. Must. Look. Away. These are making me drool . . .

  8. My husband just asked me, when are we going to make some choccolate chip cookies. These look delicious!
