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?

  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 2 1/2 cups Flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Spray or line two baking sheets, then set aside.
  2. Mix the butter, both sugars and eggs together. Add the hot water, vanilla, and salt until well-combined.
