Tasteful Tuesdays: Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi All! It is time for a Tastefule Tuesday. I haven't shared a recipe in a while and thought it was about time. Today I am sharing my family's favorite chocolate-chip cookie recipe.

Here is what you need to make them.

  4. How'd you make your cookie jar?

    1. It is just a re-purposed pretzel container from Costco with some chalkboard paint on it.

  5. Yum, and these don't look flat, you must've added more flour or no? That's how I like a cookie to look!
