I love chocolate chip cookies. That’s nothing new. However, I love to spice it up with chunks of sea salt and deep molassesey brown sugar or browned butter. And sometimes, people just want a normal chocolate chip cookie.
My husband likes food, but would prefer more traditional items as opposed to my crazy recipes that I swoon over:)
So when he and his staff went to the lakehouse last week I made them a bunch of goodies. They enjoyed them, but unfortunately brought a bunch home. Yikes! Bryan said “You made us 600 cookies so even though we ate some we couldn’t eat them all!”
Oh, I got it now:)
If you want a traditional chocolate chip cookie, here’s your guy!
