Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi! I made extra fatty chocolate chip cookies today. Typically if I make a cookie, I try to find the recipe that requires the smallest amount of butter but today I went all out. I was going for a "chewey" chocolate chip cookie, meaning it requires extra butter. The problem with these cookies is that I didn't know when to take them out of the oven - I didn't want to overcook them and I didn't want to undercook them. The first batch I pulled out too early and the centers of the cookies were completely undone. I ended up putting them back in the oven for a little. The second batch I think I overcooked, since I saw how the first batch came out and didn't want to make the same mistake. Overall, the cookies are good - you can't really go wrong with an obscene amount of butter (1.5 sticks) and sugar (1.5 cups). Quite frankly I think that there's too much butter in them - they have a faint greasy texture which I am not a fan of. I'll have to see what I do next time. This recipe made a lot of cookies, so at least the butter is fairly spread out.

These were pretty damn amazingly fantastic, I should know I ate a lot of them.
