But my earlier failed attempts at cookies had instilled a fear in me 🙁 which had kept me away from this  cookie bliss.

I think I probably have hundreds of cookie recipes bookmarked. Chocolate Chip Cookies have been topmost on that list.

And finally my sister pushed me into making these Chocolate Chip Cookies.

She recently did a post on her blog (Pumpernickelpixie) regarding her love for Chocolate Chip Cookies. Clearly I got the hint 😉 and decided to bake these cuties.

These Chocolate Chip Cookies are so damn simple that you can’t go wrong with them.

The easy dough takes minutes to whip up but needs to be chilled before baking. This is necessary with all butter-based cookie recipes so that the butter in the dough can firm up before baking. This ensures that the cookies don’t spread during baking.

So go ahead and bake these simple sweet chocolatey treats. And let me know if you guys have a secret grandmother recipe for these good old chocolate chip cookies.
