Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies

When I first started baking, I knew how to make awesome peanut butter cookies and that was about it. As I started to explore more, I modified and made some pretty good recipes for some other cookies. But, for some reason I had never tried to make chocolate chip from scratch. Well, the first time I made them, I made the mistake of baking them until they looked completely done...which made them as hard as rocks once they cooled. Like so hard that you couldn't take a bite of them. Completely indestructible. It sent me on a quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I found it.

I like my chocolate chip cookies to be chewy and soft in the middle, with a little crunch on the outside. These are also really easy to make, and it makes a big batch.
