Michigan’s best chocolate chip cookies?!

I love a good chocolate chip cookie.  A few months ago, I had the best chocolate chip cookie of my life, courtesy of  Colleen Ronayne, my friend Molly’s mom.  I recently talked to Molly about these cookies that have garnered critical acclaim around the state of Michigan.

Me: So what’s so special about these cookies?!

Molly: That’ s very subjective but I like my cookies really soft and chewy.  I love it when they’re still really soft in the middle.  I really don’t like crunchy cookies.   These cookies are different because the actual dough is so good that I prefer bites without too many chocolate chips.  They’re also really small and don’t spread out very much when they bake, making them even more chewy.  Also, this is strange but they are the BEST when refrigerated because they revert back to a dough-like state.

Me: Can I ask if there are any special ingredients that make these different than an ordinary chocolate chip cookie?

Molly: Yes, there is, but it’s a guarded family secret!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

cookie dough

YUM.  I’m reminiscing about the cookies as I write this.

Last week I made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to take to Iowa City.  I doubled the recipe to have enough for the 7 hour road trip and to last the entire weekend.  The cookies were a big hit.   Despite the Michigan loss, the weekend was incredible!  I had a very fun time with great friends.  Thanks to my fabulous hostesses for showing me a great time in Iowa City and to my road-trip buddy for entertaining me on the long drive.
