I made these cookies last night and they were simply amazing! I kid you not! They are actually called "I want to marry you" cookies. And, seriously, with a title like that, how could I resist?
These cookies were good hot out of the oven and they are still amazing this morning. They are quite seriously the perfect cookie. They were easy to make (a few extra steps, but perfect to do while cleaning up an easy dinner and putting kids to bed), had the perfect dough to chocolate chip ratio, nicely colored and soft with a little bit of crunch (just the way my husband likes them, by the way!).
Okay, time to get the little guy up from his nap. I will be back later today with the recipe.
. . .I'm back (it's nap time again). Here's the recipe. . . now go out and bake some cookies for someone special. Send a little love someone's way. Seriously. . . it's worth it!
