Chocolate Chip Cookies

You might be thinking: Really? Another chocolate chip cookie recipe from another food blogger? Can’t she be a little more original? And I respond: yes,  yes and no.Yes: it’s another chocolate chip cookie but they’re not fancy with coconut or nuts, butterscotch or peanut butter. They are simple, reliable and delicious every time. Yes: I am another food blogger in a sea of online food recipe sites; thanks for stopping by! No: Sometimes returning and learning to perfect classic recipes is as original as trying to add all the extra fixings!
