And Who Could Live Without Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Some people like chocolate chip cookies. Some people love chocolate and a chocolate chip cookie is all about the chocolate flare. For quite a while now, whenever I make chocolate chip cookies I use Trader Joe's huge, over a pound, 70 proof chocolate. This chocolate needs to be chopped and in doing so each chocolate piece varies in size and shape. Something about that variation creates an extra special chocolate experience. 
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

In a large bowl whisk:
1 cup butter soft
2 eggs
1+1/2 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons milk
In a separate bowl mix than add to wet ingredients:
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2+1/4 cups unbleached white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chopped 

Bake at 375 degrees 12-15 minutes.
Optional: Melt more chocolate and drizzle over cookies after they are done baking.
