Our only tips are:

+ work fast, the ice cream will start to melt stat.
+¬†if you’re planning on serving these, make them and freeze for a couple hours so everything can set. This will especially help when biting into a hard cookie with soft ice cream……
+ go wild with your flavor combinations and toppings Рthe options are endless!

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

cookie1

Do you guys ever find yourself getting annoyed when you just want to make a traditional baked good? I feel like every time I search for something simple like “banana bread” or “blueberry muffins” I get results like “rolled oat banana bread with¬†cream cheese filling” or “greek yogurt vanilla bean blueberry muffins.” While I’m all about playing around with recipes, sometimes I just want something simple, ya know?

So on this chilly weekend, my roommates and I decided to make the kind of chocolate chip cookies your grandma makes. Chewy in the middle, crispy on the edges, and no Mediterranean pink sea-salt flakes in sight.
