Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yippee!

The Holiday Season is here.

I have generously granted myself the right to post recipes for Christmas cookies here, on this little site of mine, well before the actual Christmas day arrives.

I do it all for the sheer good it can do to mankind, you know. I need people to know what my favorite cookies are, how else could they possibly go on? My sweet tooth plays no role in this game. Although, it might play a little role, if you insist. Okay, it plays a huge role! So now you know it!

Anyhow…

To kick it all off, I have made my very favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies today.

I will definitely be making these this month again. Mostly because they are just awesome! Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, full of chocolate deliciousness – pure heaven!

Here’s all the necessary steps that will get you to that lovely heaven too…
