“Soft and fluffy chocolate chip cookies. If you prefer harder cookies you can increase oven temp to 375* F and shorten baking time to 8-10 mins. If you like nuts add a cup to the dough with the morsles. Also, you can multiply the recipe and freeze for baking later. Form the dough into balls and partially freeze on cookie sheet(this prevents cookie dough from sticking and freezing together). then you can put them into a freezer bag and enjoy them later. To keep soft cookies soft, put a slice of bread in the container you store the cookies in.”
48-72 cookies
