Last week, I was struck by how long it had been since I'd had made plain old chocolate chip cookies. Salted caramel s'more brandy truffle spritzes, yes, but not chocolate chip cookies.* So I cooked up a batch (of the latter), poured myself a tall glass of milk, and realized why some things become classics while others do not.


You probably already have it, but here's the recipe anyway. You should probably bake some of these cookies, because they will definitely make you happier. . . or at least make being sad better.

*I actually never made salted caramel s'more brandy truffle spritzes. I was just using them to make a point about needless complexity.
