The chocolate chip cookie is a classic and perfect for sharing around the office or with girlfriends over tea/coffee. So perfect I made three batches of them: one for the SO to take to work, one for me to take to work and one reserved for ourselves.
And the icing on the cake - or in this case, the chocolate chip on the cookie - it's so dead simple, the SO now knows the recipe by heart and is happy to mix everything together. That's what you use if you don't have a KitchenAid® Mixer - go old school with manpower.
I should also add these are addictive!
