Oooh, secrets! When you bite into these cookies you’ll notice a something extra. A “what else is in this?” By adding just a quarter teaspoon of allspice, you get a surprise taste of warm spice to complement the gooey and sweet chocolate chip cookie. For sweater-weather autumn holidays, this recipe fits in just right.
If you need to know one thing about me, it’s this — I love cookies. Hubs is even known to playfully call me “cookie monster,” to my chagrin. This is an easy batch to whip up, that promises a soft and chewy center with the classic chocolate chip cookie outer crunch.
These are adult and kid friendly, and milk’s best friend. These would make a perfect addition to your holiday dessert list. It’s impossible to eat just one, but I dare you to try.
