Chocolate Chip Cookies

If there is one thing I love it is a good cookie recipe. When we are preparing for a movie or tv show marathon, it isn’t too uncommon for me to spend the morning baking cookies so that we have a nice snack for our movie night. While I love cookies, I sometimes don’t have time for complicated recipes, making it important that I fall back on fail safe recipes that are not only quick, but easy to make. Best of all, no one will be able to tell that this is beginner recipe, making it perfect for impressing guests, relatives, or just putting a smile on your kids faces when they want a yummy treat.

For those that are new to cooking – don’t worry. This is an awesome beginner recipe since it really is as simple as put all the ingredients in the bowl and go. Just make sure you have some milk or coffee once you are finished baking to properly enjoy this delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe!

Note: Special thanks to my friends Angela from Juggling Act Mama for helping me with this recipe and pictures!

    Chocolate chip cookies are one of the easiest cookies to make.I always under cook mine just a bit so they’re really soft. It drives my husband nuts.
