Tis the season!
And guess what? It's just less than one week until Christmas. I told you I'd be back back with some more holiday goodies and this time I brought you fresh out of the oven chocolate chip cookies. What would Christmas be like without milk and cookies. Maybe some people leave oreo's for Santa but in my house, it's always homemade chocolate chip cookies. These are our tradition.
This recipe is an oldie. There's something very special about these cookies. Maybe it's because I have fond memories of helping my mom make them. Or maybe it's because they're that perfect texture: chewy and just soft enough to melt in your mouth. Trust me when I say that if make said cookies and place them in a cookie jar on your kitchen counter top, they will disappear before your eyes. I've learnt this the hard way. I know, I know, it's a cookie jar and afterall they're supposed to be eaten, but they didn't even last a week!
These are some of the easiest cookies you'll ever with make. They're tender and seriously chocolate-y and take only 6 ingredients to make. This is simple baking at its finest. You'll have to take my word for it. ;)
This cookie recipe is a keeper!
