Ida's Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Snowpeas

A wonderfully delicious cookie. When Ida made these cookies all of us kids would follow the aroma into the kitchen. I think we must all still have the memory of those soft warm cookies with a glass of milk. Note: Cooking time is for one batch in the oven.

These were great! My husband always asks me to make soft but not soo chewy/rubbery chocolate chip cookies. Mine have always been either too hard or too rubbery. These were apparently perfect because he said to me (as he was putting the 4th one in his mouth) "boy these are really good soft cookies!" You did good, Snowpeas!!! Made for Bargain Basement 2012.
