If you bake nothing else this year, be sure to try the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe - a reader favorite.

It’s not the standard chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of Toll House Drop packages. And it’s hard to say what makes this recipe so popular. Maybe it’s the extra chocolate chips. Or the tweaked proportions of granulated sugar and brown sugar.

Whatever! Just make sure you try it once this year. Preferably soon.

And let us know how your Best Chocolate Chip Cookies (or other first cookies of 2016) turn out. Post your pics on our Facebook page so that other cookie elves can be inspired!

Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Bake time: 11-12 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen large cookies
