Chewy Chocolate Chips Cookies

This is the chewy and a little sticky kind of chocolate chips cookies. Recently, have got craving to bake cookies especially chocolate chips. I have not found one that I'm very satisfied with. I think my expectation too high le. This is really nice thou, got good reviews. But it is just me, expect too much. I have reduced the sugar a little.

4. with dampened hands, shape the dough into small balls and place on the baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
