Do you have a guy that’s not crazy about cookies? Well, I have two of them. One is 3 and the other is … well, older. 🙂 And it just so happened that Dakota and I stumbled onto a cookie recipe this past weekend that we adapted into what I’m calling Male Approved Chocolate Chip Cookies. And the reason for that is because I saw her 3 year old brother gobble up two whole cookies. I’ve never seen him do more than lick a little icing off other cookies. And her Pop Pop has almost eaten the rest of the batch himself, and he’s normally not a homemade cookie eater. So this cookie recipe is definitely male approved. Dakota also gave it her approval as well, since she gobbled up several cookies straight out of the oven, too. As for me, someone who loves sweets, I’m not a chocolate chip cookie eater … unless it’s Chips Ahoy (it’s that texture thing again). So if you want to try out a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, give this one a try. It’s easy enough for a 9 year old. Dakota made these.
I had to hurry and get this post online before Chris ate all the cookies. I just thought I was going to have cookies to go in the freezer. By the way, if you need tips for freezing cookies or candy look here.
These are not the most beautiful chocolate chip cookies, but the guys sure did think they were good!
