Chocolate Chip Cookies

By: Cindy

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER!

Chocolate is my favorite food group and there are so many possible recipes from which to pick. It's hard to beat a warm chocolate chip cookie so for the chocolate chip category I had to make some. Most of the chocolate chip recipes are similar but this recipe is by far my favorite!  My friend Karen's daughter, Lauren, perfected this chocolate chip cookie recipe and I promise it is worth trying!
Happy Baking,
