Almost everything I bake, he gets to sample. He may not like everything ( hardcore chocolate lover, Step aside Lemon bars!), but he loves to taste. If you were to ask him what he'd want me to bake 99.9% of the time he'll ask for chocolate chip cookies. I've been known to mix and freeze lots and lots of cookie dough just so he'll never be without. And around this time of year, he'll defiantly expect it lol. There are so many recipes out there, it's hard to pick a favorite. At the moment I'm loving Martha Stewart' recipe, but decided to try a different recipe this time around.
This particular recipe( found by fellow blogger Lovin' From the Oven) is fantastically chewy and packed with LOTS of Chocolate( Who wouldn't love that?). I ran out of White chocolate chips so I replaced them with bittersweet chocolate wafers I've had stashed for good measure. I'm certain with the white chocolate they would still be just as amazing! This also makes a lot of dough so I'd strongly suggest cutting it down to get the amount best for you, even the chocolate if you don't want so many chips. On to the recipe!
