How To Make Chocolate Chip Cookies

While it’ll never be quite as easy as opening premade cookie dough, we promise it’s not hard at all. All you’ll need are some basic baking ingredients and a cookie sheet or any oven-safe tray that you can throw balls of dough on!

As tempting as cookie dough can be, we recommend you don’t eat it, as this recipe calls for eggs. From start to finish, this recipe only takes about 20 minutes. Once you’re done, dunk the warm cookies into a glass of milk or serve with ice cream for a nice post-dinner treat!
