To go along with my cookie dough confession, I thought I'd share this recipe I found recently for Chocolate Chip Cookies. I know that seems really simple, and so many people have recipes for this, but when you find something good, it is better to share it then to keep it to yourself!
When I make chocolate chip cookies, I usually just use the recipe on the back of the chip back (normally Nestle, unless I get the store brand). I found this recipe, strangely enough, on the inside of a Reynolds Parchment Paper roll box. I figured I might as well try it, right?
It was surprisingly AWESOME.
It was only slightly different than the recipe on the Nestle chip bag, but the cookies are SO SOFT and chewy. And it's been, like, 2 days. Usually they are hockey pucks by now (maybe not THAT hard, but definitely crunchy).
So, if you find yourself looking for something to do on a rainy day (luckily, we should be rain-free until early next week here in SE PA), try out this recipe and let me know what you think!
