My Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie

Published on by Iheartcooking

Chocolate  chips. Dark chocolate chunks. Roasted pecans. What's not to love about this cookie? I know my last post was a cookie recipe as well but I've been on a cookie-ing spree this week. School reopens next Monday so I am making a bunch of different cookies to freeze for lunchkit snacks for my daughter. She is always a little depressed the first week of school. So am I...oh well. Enough about THAT.
