I was craving for some chocolate chip cookies, but I didn't want to make a big batch of cookies like I usually do. So I got my Kindle, and scrolled down to my Baking Recipe Books. I decided on baking a cookie recipe from Cookie Cravings: 30 All-Time Favorite Recipes. I got the Kindle edition when it was only a dollar. It's great book with tons of great cookie recipes! The author of this book which is Maria Lichty, is from Two Peas and Their Pods. Tons of great recipes on that site!
These cookies are mini and so cute, that I almost didn't want to eat them...almost! But I did and boy there really good! The mini chocolate chips come in handle when baking up a small batches of cookies like these. They almost look like store bought cookies. These cookies are great for any occasion. Be prepared cause they will go quick! I have many cookie monsters at home, I don't mean kids! haha
I'm loving this cookie spatula that I got for a dollar at Rite Aid! I can transfer two mini cookies on it or one big cookie, one at a time. I love getting things for a dollar! ^_^
