The Easiest Chocolate Chip Cookies

I watched in awe as my friend Ann, made these cookies while we were just standing around.  I always think of making cookies is a “massive undertaking” with the dirtying of too many dishes and cooking tools.  These cookies come together in a jiffy and are a fun, yummy and easy recipe to make with the kids.  Great eaten warm with some ice-cream!  If I can make them, anyone can make them. 🙂

  2. Tried this recipe. The cookies spread a lot and got thin at the edges, probably because the butter has been melted and the dough is very very wet. They still tasted alright and are fine if you don’t want the work of creaming the butter and sugar, etc. But do the extra work if you’ve got the time.

  3. These were delicious! I used semisweet and a handful of white chocolate chips. I also accidentally made the first batch really big, but no worries! They were just extra gooey. Thanks!

  8. I made these with my 4 year old niece today. I usually try and stick to healthy recipes, but I was looking for something kid friendly. I did a google search for easy chocolate chip cookies to make with kids and your page popped up. Seriously delicious cookies! A little too delicious, but they were a hit and that’s all that matters. Thanks for sharing the awesome recipe!
