The right amount of chew and the right amount of chocolate chips make these Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies that are perfect anytime of the year, especially Christmas!
There is something about the classic chocolate chip cookie that makes me think of being a kid. Although I didn’t grow up with anybody baking chocolate chip cookies, they just remind me of the simple life of childhood. Remember when you didn’t have to pay bills, cook dinner, and drive? That is the feeling that I get when I eat these cookies. They are simple, yet taste better than any store bought cookie you could ever buy. No, this chocolate chip cookie doesn’t come from a famous cookie recipe, but this classic chocolate chip cookie will make you famous with the family and friends that you share them with.
We know that Santa isn’t picky when it comes to cookies, but I bet he would love these classic chocolate chip cookies to dunk in his milk on his long journey.
