We Need Cookies, STAT!

Is there anything more comforting than a glass of milk and a warm cookie? But, baking a batch of cookies is often easier said than done. I don't always have the time to haul out the heavy-duty mixer, measure all of the wet and dry ingredients, break eggs, beat till fluffy, and on and on.

That's when these recipes come in handy.

        vocalcoach - the chocolate chip cookies are very moist and chewy--they are almost dangerously too easy to make. Thanks for your kind comments. Have a great day!

        I have already made some cookies like this and they are very good. I made a bunch a couple of Chritmasses ago and they were a hit with everyone.

        Hi Jackie Lynnley - I hope you find the time to try a few of these. Since more and more cake flavors are being produced, it seems the flavor combinations of cake and chips is almost limitless. Thanks for stopping by.
