This recipe is by Sunset Magazine, is probably one of the best cookie recipes. It makes about 18 cookies and after you make them, you can put them in the freezer and they will last for about 2-3 weeks. The simplicity of it is nice as well, It does not take too long so if you need any last minute desert plans these cookies are the answer. Switching up the combination of chocolate chips is good too. The combo of both semi-sweet and dark is good, but for milk chocolate lovers, adding all three types is great!
