Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe from Boston University’s Sargent Choice

These cookies are a favorite at Boston University and are hard to find at student orientations because they get snatched up so fast! The batter will seem a bit looser than what you are familiar with in butter based dough but have no fear because the cookies will bake up beautifully.
