I forget how I ended up making the cookies this way but my fondest memory was when my Husband’s cousins were in town from Thousand Oaks. It was right before Christmas and I needed to whip up a dessert, fast. I got into my Christmas Recipes and made a quick batch of these Chocolate Chip Cookies. Total crowd pleaser! They were in Awe of how fast they were made.[recipe title=”Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies”]

Drop Spoonfuls onto a Parchment Paper lined cookie sheet. I like to use a small Ice Cream Scooper.
