Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!!!!
Today, August 4th, is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day and that’s not a holiday I take lightly. You probably don’t need any convincing to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies, but maybe I can convince you which chocolate chip cookie recipe to bake.
To celebrate, we centered Sprinkled episode 4 around the cookie of honor!
Earlier this year, a video production crew filmed me at work in my kitchen. Most of the time was spent filming step-by-step recipe tutorials, but they also filmed me working, writing, editing, photographing, and recipe testing. The series is called Sprinkled. 🙂 I selected my favorite recipes ranging from cookies and cake to brownies and pie. In honor of this delicious holiday, the 4th episode is Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies and you can watch it below.

Episode 4 recipe: Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies
The most loved cookie recipe on my website! The number of comments on the recipe speaks volumes to its popularity. Big, bold, dense, and chewy, these are my go-to chocolate chip cookies. I love the recipe so much that I published it in my cookbook Sally’s Cookie Addiction. I chose this recipe as episode 4 not only because it’s a reader favorite, but because there are a few unique aspects to the recipe. In this episode, I explain why an extra egg yolk is used, why chilling the cookie dough is crucial, why I prefer more brown sugar over white, why I use melted butter, and how I shape the cookies, and more. Each of these characteristics work together to make the softest, densest, chewiest chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever taste. Promise.
Let me know what you think of episode 4!
