The Best Chocolate Cookie Recipe

Gooey Chocolate Cookie

I used a Hugh F-W recipe as the base for these gorgeous cookies. I fiddled and changed a few of the ingredients but the end result was melt in the mouth cookies - just how we like them. You could add some dried cranberries or sour cherries to the mix if you wanted, just a handful.
