Chocolate Chip Cookies

When the weather turns a bit chilly or for those days when the skies look dreary, nothing beats a good chocolate chip cookie. I should know... I ate six for lunch the other day. Yeah. I'll admit it and I'll tell you it was DAMN GOOD! So good that I had a couple more for an afternoon snack.

This is my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Nice crunch on the outside, softer on the inside and chock full of chocolate chips.

They are even really good frozen. I freeze a bunch of them but this does not deter me from dipping into the freezer box. A bit more crunchier but oh so good.

I know you will thank me for the recipe after you have a taste of your first cookie, so you are very welcome. But I must say I'm sorry too, for any extra pounds this may add to your frame.

Can't say I didn't warn you!
