Chocolate Chip Cookies


Category : , ,

Just recently Cassie's grandma celebrated her 81st birthday.  As a way to celebrate and to give a gift to the woman who has everything we decided to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies.  Grandma has always been crystal clear that she LOVES cookies and that chocolate chip is her absolute favorite cookie.  The choice was an easy one and the morning before her birthday celebration we went to work crafting some extra special cookies just for her.  Cassie even hand made the box that they are in.  If you are interested in learning how to make a gift box yourself check out her craft blog.

We found this recipe from another blog and it looked too good to not try.  The results were fantastic.  They will definitely be our go to chocolate chip cookie recipe from now on.  The cookies were soft and chewy and really packed with chocolatey goodness.
