What’s your favorite sweet treat?

If you’re like me and a gazillion others… there isn’t much better than a chocolate chip cookie.  Unless it’s a chocolate chip cookie with a cup of cocoa.


Light and Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies


Recently on Facebook I shared a recipe that looked really good and one of our An Extraordinary Day readers mentioned that she had a similar tried and true recipe that she LOVED.  I asked if she might share it with me.  Last night I whipped up a batch and shared them with friends and they were a hit.

And because I can’t keep all good things to myself… I had to share it with you.  Thankfully, Jen approves. 😉

Better get a napkin… because just looking at these cookies makes me drool!  Yup!  They are that good.


Delicious chocolate chip cookies your family will rave about.
