Thanks to my neighbor Mornia who bakes the most amazing chocolate chip cookies; her delicious cookies gave me the urge to bake me some. So I went on a hunt for a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and found this one. Most recipes will say that nuts are optional, but for me nuts are a must. This recipe called for a cup of nuts but I put in about a cup and a half of nuts. This was my first time using this recipe, so I followed it to the exact (except for the extra nuts and chocolate). I am so pleased at how good they turned out…yummy! I ate more than I needed. It was hard to eat just one. Give them a try, they are so good! Check out my Cookie Board on Pinterest!
