My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies!

chocolate chip cookies

This evening my mom was craving cookies, so I decided to make some chocolate chip cookies. I used just a basic recipe from Baking Basics and Beyond but they were SO good. I halved this recipe and left out the white chocolate and pecans. I’d loved to use pecans next time though, and i think i'm going to try it with reeces pieces or peanut butter chips. I used my new silpat and absolutely loved it. It was an early christmas present from mom. Everything just slides off of it and it just wipes clean. Anyway, here's the recipe!
