Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Do you guys ever find yourself getting annoyed when you just want to make a traditional baked good? I feel like every time I search for something simple like “banana bread” or “blueberry muffins” I get results like “rolled oat banana bread with cream cheese filling” or “greek yogurt vanilla bean blueberry muffins.” While I’m all about playing around with recipes, sometimes I just want something simple, ya know?

So on this chilly weekend, my roommates and I decided to make the kind of chocolate chip cookies your grandma makes. Chewy in the middle, crispy on the edges, and no Mediterranean pink sea-salt flakes in sight.
