Chocolate Chip Cookies

The key to delicious chocolate chip cookies? IRISH BUTTER! This chocolate chip cookie recipe is tried and true! I always keep Irish butter on hand to make these perfect cookies anytime! If you have ever had flat and hard cookies (haven’t we all?) read below and get a few hints to make your next batch of cookies your best one yet!

The biggest game changer for me in my cookie game has been Irish butter! Because it has a higher butterfat content it is richer and creamier than your average butter. Once I tried it, I have never gone back to regular butter. They also sell this brand in a tub easy for spreading on toast and bagels. Another important butter tip is that the butter MUST BE ROOM TEMPERATURE! I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH! It changes how evenly incorporated the ingredients are if it is not at room temperature. I usually leave a few sticks of butter out on the counter just so its ready to go!
