One of my favorite recipes: Sexy Chocolate Chip Cookies . Over the years we’ve tried dozens of cookie recipes, turns out the most amazing chocolate chip cookie just needed once certain ingredient.  In this culinary secret, the addition of one ingredient, egg whites, gives additional structure to the cookie.  Meanwhile, the air that’s whipped into the egg whites adds tiny pockets of air that when baked into the cookie, allowing it to rise to perfection.  You’ll be amazed at how soft and chewy (and chocolaty) the cookie is on the inside, but has that perfect” snap” when you bite into it.   The difference is amazing!  Try it, and then share this recipe.
