Leave it to Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines to come up with a chocolate chip cookie recipe that’s delicious and also healthier than most. Buzz60’s Maria Mercedes Galuppo has more.
Every time we think we’ve found a new favorite chocolate chip cookie, another recipe comes along that we’re desperate to try and our memory lapses. Thus our search for the best will never end — and we’re okay with that. Who knows what cookie tomorrow will bring, but for right now, we’re OBSESSED with Joanna Gaines’ recipe from her cookbook Magnolia Table. Here’s why.

We swear it’s the reason why these cookies are so good. If you’re rolling your eyes, please stop and hear us out. It’s not about being healthier, it’s about texture. In this case, the sugar to butter to ratio is high, which we think lends a super crispy (almost caramelized) crust on the outside; inside, it’s simultaneously soft and chewy.
