I have been MIA for a little over a month....But no worries, I'm back. I've been so busy with school but I'm hoping to have more time from now on. I'm still pressed for time but I wanted to share one of my favorite cookie recipes. I know there's a lot of recipes out there for chocolate chip cookies but this is my absolute favorite. My good friend Diana shared it with me and I have to say that it was love at first bite. These cookies are thin and crispy and addictive! Due to my busyness I couldn't do my usual step by step but since I made these for my husband's boss on bosses day I wanted to share them with you.
