Does anything smell better than a cup of coffee and freshly made cookies early in the morning? I don’t think so! My kitchen smelled divine this morning..mmm! As I was pulling my cookies out of the oven for my kid’s school snack, my coffee finished brewing.
It was rather a cold morning, so I put my sweater on and walked out to enjoy this crisp fresh air with my hot coffee and warm cookies. What an amazing morning- peaceful, delicious and warm!
These chocolate chip cookies are just perfect for snack and dessert, coffee or tea companion or just to have something sweet to kill the cravings. You can add chips or chunks or perhaps break into pieces your favorite chocolate bar, such as Hershey’s or dove. We love dark chocolate but every now and then these inexpensive chunks serve a great purpose for baking, of course, ahem midnight snack too!
