Chocolate-chip cookies

Chocolate-chip cookies may just be everyone’s favorite dessert. Warm, melty chocolate in buttery dough is the ultimate all-American dessert. And the variations are infinite. We’ve got them all covered. Our chocolate-chip cookies range from thin and crisp to chewy and chunky. Some are loaded with nuts, others with oats and dried fruit. All are decadent and delicious.

These classic cookies are flavorful but intolerance-friendly, says baker Cybele Pascal, author of "The Allergen-Free Baker's Handbook." Gluten-free and dairy-free (plus egg-free, soy-free, and nut-free), these will please the pickiest dinner guest.

Depending on which dessert you make, you'll need to vary the size of the cookies as described at the end of this recipe. Needless to say, you can also bake a traditional batch. If you do, we recommend the four-inch ones for the best texture.

Making these cookies is a perfect family activity -- the absence of flour means there's no fuss and no muss. Plus, the cookies come together in a snap. Let the kids help measure everything, stir the ingredients together with a spoon, then scoop, roll, press, and bake! Oh yeah, simple never tasted so good.
