I am a huge fan of the blog Comfy in the Kitchen. Her recipes are easy and homestyle, which I love. Janelle has a wonderful food ministry and is a Christian wife and mother. This recipe is from her blog. I'm always on the search for the perfect recipe and this one is it! Not one cookie was left over and they were gone in about 3 days. That's amazing in this house!
The only changes I made to the recipe was that I used milk chocolate chips and that I made my cookies a bit smaller using a cookie scoop, so I got about 24 instead of 18. The bake time was the same. These cookies were soft, which I prefer my cookies to be. I failed to take a picture of these beautiful cookies, but if you visit Janelle's blog, you can view a photo there.
