I’ve had quite a sweet tooth lately and I’m not sure why. It definitely isn’t going to help maintain my new, slightly trimmed down bod after doing P90X for the past 3 months. Sigh. Why is chocolate so yummy??
The other night I was on the hunt for a oatmeal chocolate chip recipe. I just had a craving for them! I ended up using this Nestle Tollhouse cookie recipe that is just perfect; the cookies were soft on the inside and a tad crispy on the edges. I can tell my husband likes them because he grabs for one every time he passes the cookie container. 🙂
This recipe makes a whopping 4 dozen cookies which is more cookies than we like to have around our house at any given time, so I decided to freeze half of the batch. I’ll tell you how to do that later. For now, enjoy this super easy and very delicious cookie recipe!
