Chewy Chocolate Cookies

ChocolateCookie

Homemade cookies were a staple in our house growing up and this was one of our favorites. This chocolate cookie was often included in the multi-cookie baking afternoons when we were younger (yes, there was more than one day we couldn’t decide what cookie to make, so we made a variety!!). It is the perfect balance of buttery, chocolaty goodness.  There is nothing fussy about this cookie, but it couldn’t be more perfect in our opinions.  Quick and easy to mix up, you will want make these today!!
