Here's just a plain-ole' nothing fancy chocolate chip cookie recipe to try out, but I must say, these are the Best Chocolate Cookies ever.  


When I was pregnant with my first child (and absolutely determined to be the perfect housewife who baked cookies all the time. . . ), a friend shared this recipe.


 Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients


After baking them at least once a month for the last 16 years, I've got the recipe down by memory and figure when I'm old and grey you'll find me in the nursing home baking up these cookies for all the staff. 

(Pretty sure I'll have forgotten everything else in the world, but these cookies are not to be forgotten. )

If you just need a simple recipe that goes a long way and makes everybody happy . . . this one's for you. 🙂
