Is there anything better than a chocolate chip cookie after a long, hard day? The answer is most definitely no and for very good reason.
Everyone seems to have their own story with chocolate chip cookies. It’s the universal cookie. Maybe your story included making them with your sweet Grandmother or your mom always having a plate for you after school. Maybe you use a recipe that has been in the family for years. Maybe chocolate chip cookies are all about the chips for you… white chocolate or dark chocolate or a mixture of the two.
As kids, our mother always had a treat waiting for us when we got home from school. Very often it was chocolate chip cookies. If we were lucky, they were just baked and just about 5 minutes out of the oven. Chocolate chip cookies have got to be everyone’s favorite treat! Let’s talk about this recipe. It was given to our mom several years ago by a friend and it has quickly become one of our favorite cookie recipes. Whether we are having a good day or a bad one, life is always better after a few these. Two, five… we won’t judge!
After tinkering with the sugars and not messing much with the other ingredients, we’ve been very pleased with the results of these delicious cookies. They truly are divine and better yet – even with the change to natural sweeteners – they still taste like traditional cookies from our childhood.
