That is, poor Jared, until I found this easy peasy, all the right ingredients on-hand, if I can do it you can do it, chocolate chip cookie recipe. Happy Jared.
I know I'm totally late to the game of chocolate chip cookies from scratch. I'm sure your grandmother's mother's neighbor's aunt has a recipe that you and everyone else in your family knows by heart. But just in case, here's a recipe that I found via pinterest that will knock your spouse's socks off and make your toddler sing your praises. Assuming you have both a spouse and a toddler. If you don't and you want a spouse and a toddler, I'd say these cookies are a good way to start. You know what they say: the best way to a man's heart is his stomach and the best way to a girl's heart is chocolate. Right?
Click here for the original recipe that I am so thankful for.
I altered the ingredient amounts, so that way it won't leave you with 4 dozen cookies.
My recipe yields about 18-24 cookies. Just enough to put out for a dinner party or your first date with your future husband, and still have a healthy portion in a secret spot for yourself for later.
