I love chocolate chip cookies! Who doesn’t, correct? I mean I have never met anyone who does not love chocolate chip cookies. In my house a big jar is always filled with some kind of cookies. Hubby also needs cookies with his tea every morning. Even my little one loves these cookies with milk which is the best part. Ever since I’m baking things at home I don’t feel like getting the store brought cookies. I think this is the disadvantage when you able to cook something.

I baked these cookies over the weekend and the cookies came out so moist inside, chewy but little crisp on outside and packed with chocolatey goodness.What I love about these cookies are they stay fresh and moist for a week in air tight container but they never last that long. This recipe is definitely a keeper in my house!! Its easy and very simple to execute. so, when ever you feel like making some cookies, try out this recipe.
