Just in time, before our first day of school here, I am sharing a tradition from when I was a kid: chocolate chip cookies (homemade) for the first day of school. I also do the last day of school, because why not. I have made so many chocolate chip cookies over the years, and recently, I switched to a new recipe.

You know I love cookies. And I love chocolate. So chocolate cookies should be an easy thing to please me, but they often are dry or not chocolatey enough. These cookies manage to be not too dry (if eaten warm) and super chocolatey. Plus, they are easy to make ahead and bake whenever you need one.
