With the holidays coming, I know there’s going to be TONS of delicious, amazing and unique recipes all over the blogosphere. I’ll be sharing some of those, too! However, sometimes what I really want is Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies!
There’s just something about having a delicious chocolate chip cookie that really hits the spot. Add some milk, and it’s pure heaven! Remember those days after school, having cookies and milk? I sure do, and still love doing that with my kiddos! Don’t worry, though, I don’t let them have cookies everyday….everything in balance, right?
There’s so many cookies to choose from, in so many combinations it’s insane, but I do love soft, chewy, perfectly-flavored Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies! And really, they can’t get much more simple than this! Serve them up warm and they’re even better, at least in my opinion! I will admit, I don’t give them to my kids very warm too often…because all that melted, fabulous chocolate in the cookies? Ya, that’s a total mess with a 3-year-old sometimes! Momma, on the other hand, deserves to enjoy the gooey-ness, am I right?
