Classic Choc Chip Cookies

I’ve been missing homemade chocolate chip cookies since I’ve been away at school; not to mention the way the house smells after baking a batch of them. There were countless times that I’ve disappointed to find that I could count the number of chocolate chips in my cookie or that I have bitten into a dry and bland one. So these cookies were the first things I made when I got home, and I made them just the way I like them.

These cookies were slightly crispy around the edges and soft,moist and buttery in the center. I like mine with walnuts and double the amount of chocolate chips so if you’re like me, you’ll love this recipe!
