Use this easy trick to celebrate National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!

Between family recipes and all the recipes you'll find on the Internet, there must be at least a million chocolate chip cookie recipes. There's one easy step that many of these recipes don't include that makes the difference between cookies that are 'just okay' to truly unforgettable.

The trick? Chill your cookie dough before baking.

Chilling the dough keeps your cookies from spreading too thin and makes them soft on the inside while chewy on the outside. It's also a good idea to make balls of the dough before chilling as it's a lot easier when the dough is at room temperature.

Enjoy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!
