The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

December 30th, 2010 Leave a reply »

Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of my favorite dessert recipes. They are so simple to make and very yummy. I have mastered the making of these cookies that it now takes me less than 30min – 12min to make the dough and 12min to bake. These cookies are soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside.

Estimated time: 30min
Servings: 8 cookies
