So I have had a little bit of a craving for chocolate chip cookies lately. Part of it is smelling great cookies baking in the oven, some of it is eating the cookies. But I do have my own series of litmus tests that any cookie recipe must go through before it is accepted in my house. This one definitely passed….and it is definitely far better than the preservative and chemical filled cookies from the store.
I use this brand of chocolate chips, because they are soy free and they are really yummy! They are also dairy free.
Another thing that I love about these cookies is that they are not really big. Some cookie recipes really spread out when baking, but this one does not. I love taking the dough and creating walnut sized balls with it because it makes a cookie that is crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside and is good for a few bites. Have this with a glass of raw milk and YUM!
I served these for a family get together and the kids and adults both equally liked them…and asked for more!
