Chocolate Chip Cookies

Before Ryan and I started dating, I offered to bake him cookies. I decided on a recipe for pudding cookies, which have always received rave reviews. I happily delivered them to his work site, and left with a smile on my face, thinking I wowed him.  Little did I know, these soft, yummy cookies were exactly what Ryan didn’t like. Yes, you read that right. DIDN’T LIKE. When you’re trying to impress a man, you definitely don’t want to deliver something they don’t like. How embarrassing!

Nowadays, when I make chocolate chip cookies, they are typically crispy on the outside, and the right amount of chewy in the middle. They’re just the way Ryan likes them, and the way I now prefer my cookies now too. That’s if we leave enough cookie dough to actually make cookies- Ryan’s a sneaky dough stealer, and as baker, I have the right to having a spoonful or two of dough!

Nothing fancy about this recipe, but I’ve been asked before what the recipe was, so thought I’d share!
