Perfect super soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies that stay soft! Enjoy warm for a super ooey gooey center! A must make for all chocolate chip cookie fans!

I’ve fallen into the great summer hole. It was hard but I managed to climb out and share these amazing cookies, because you absolutely need them in your life. But first… a little recap, because it’s been a while.

My children are apparently fish. They’ve been in the pool everyday since starting summer break, except one… it rained and was too cold to swim. That didn’t stop them from asking though! It’s become part of our daily routine and I hope we’re able to keep up with that as much as possible.

I picked up a shark float a couple weeks ago, for the kids to use. I decided to give it a try yesterday. Lemme just say, they’re so much harder to ride or float on than they look. I’d say my balance is pretty good, but I tipped over super fast. Oh well! It was fun and definitely funny…for myself and everyone else. I’m absolutely obsessed with my donut float though. If you’ve been eying them but have been resisting or have just been on the search for the perfect float, this is totally it. It’s a perfect donut/ring float for an adult and it’s fun. Super comfy. I’ve actually been eying others but I’ll try to resist buying more…at least for this year.

Also, can we discuss deer flies? They’re horrible little beasts. One took a chunk out of my ankle and it hurt SO bad. It seriously itched and ached for days. Next to mosquitoes and spiders, I’d love for deer flies to vanish. I would happily live without them.

For a while I’d been searching for a nylon crossbody bag to use this summer that would hold a little bit more than I usually carry, but not a ton. Nylon because it’s super lightweight and easy to clean. I still like relatively small bags most of the time, so it was proving semi-difficult to find the right one… and the price. Seriously, why are bags so expensive? Don’t tell me that the more you spend, the better the quality because I know that isn’t always true. Sure, sometimes it is but definitely not always. I ended up discovering a nylon bag by Dooney & Bourke that seemed to be exactly what I’d been looking for, this one to be exact, in case you’ve been on the hunt too! Bonus, it was marked down $50 for a short time – some kind of special deal they were having. Totally couldn’t pass that up. It must’ve been meant to be.

I’m looking for fun summer reading suggestions! What have you read lately that you couldn’t put down? I have Me Before You on my list, but besides that, I don’t have a ton that are jumping out at me to read right away.

Okay, these cookies. Stop what you’re doing and make these. Right. Now.

These are by far my absolute favorite new cookie. I’ve always been a chocolate chip cookie fan, even more so when they’re nice and soft. Huge bonus when they stay soft… psst… these do!! Left out or in a container, they’ll stay nice and soft for days!

The super soft texture brought me back to my junior high and high school days. My dad was a teacher and often teacher meetings were held in his room, since it was one of the largest classrooms in the school. Fresh coffee and a tray of freshly baked cookies were always brought in prior to the meetings and I was always able to take one. Some weeks they were so much better than others. My favorites were the weeks they were slightly underdone and ridiculously soft. Seriously good.

If you’re like me and love a soft cookie, then you absolutely must try these super soft chocolate chip cookies. They’re sure to become a new family favorite. I know it’s going to be hard to beat these moving forward!

And like always, grab one while you can because these are definitely going to disappear fast!
