The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies...Ever

I have a really hard time choosing favorites. So, when I say these are the best chocolate chip cookies ever, that's really saying something! Seriously, I can't commit to picking favorites of anything, but if I had to pick one cookie to eat for the rest of my life, these would be my choice! These cookie are the perfect balance of chewy, soft, sweet and salty. I promise you will not be disappointed!

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies...Ever
makes 24 medium sized cookies
1 1/2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c cooking oats
3/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 c butter, melted
2 tbsp honey

Preheat oven to 300 F. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the slightly beaten egg, melted butter, and honey. Fold ingredients together with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until well combined. Place medium sized balls of dough on a baking sheet. I recommend using a Silpat to keep the cookies from burning. I also feel that the cookies bake better when using a Silpat. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and lift Silpat with the cookies still on it on to a cooling rack.
