These cookies are exactly what the title says: really soft and chewy, and with the right variations, chunky too. With the last two and a half cups, you can choose whatever you want, I've just listed what I usually do, but could really do anything you want with these, adding dried fruit, nuts, seeds, smarties... whatever. If you're a purist, you could just do however much of chocolate chips, and add a bit more flour to fill in for the rest. Be creative!
