I always test my cookie dough by baking two or three cookies to see if the dough is the right consistency. If the cookies get too flat, add a bit more flour. So, I start with less amount of flour and add more if needed. Because it's easier to thicken a flat cookie than it is to flatten a fat cookie. And I prefer flatter cookies.
Do not overbake. Overbaking will create a crunchy and dry cookie.
I usually keep about a dozen or two cookies out for fresh eating and the rest go in the freezer. Freezing your cookies will keep them fresh and chewy. Remove from the freezer to thaw about a half-hour before eating, unless you like frozen cookies.
Chocolate chip cookie dough is very versatile. You can add any flavor chips or nuts for variety.
