Chocolate Chip Cookies

Read along for our recipe + thought behind the most classic dessert : Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are a true classic. In my opinion, there is nothing quite as good as an ooey, gooey, chocolate chip cookie fresh out of the oven. They remind me of being a kid, and take me back to memories of my mom surprising me with a plate full after a long day of school. Both tasty and nostalgic, they make the perfect treat for any old day.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I like a classic recipe, but you can also mix it up by adding oats, chopped nuts, toffee bits, or even some dried cranberries. Another variation is to add browned butter to your dough. It creates thicker, denser cookies, and gives them a slight nuttiness that I love.

  1. I’m commenting to let you be aware of of the fantastic encounter my cousin’s daughter experienced reading your site. She even learned many issues, not to mention what it’s like to have a wonderful giving mindset to have many people quite simply grasp chosen grueling subject areas. You really exceeded our expectations. Many thanks for giving the informative, healthy, educational and as well as easy thoughts on the topic to Jane.
