chocolate chip cookies

Chocolate chip cookie is an all time favorite in my family. Since Ayaan has discovered the art of eating cookies,cakes and ice creams I always try to make new items for him. Sometimes they are a big success and sometimes they are a big failure.
This chocolate chip cookie was a big hit. Even My hubby loved it. After their daily play time together they will come home and both take a big glass of warm milk and dip the cookies in it and eat it. And Ayaan will enjoy them with out any fuss. I wish it was this easy to make him to eat his lunch and dinner! But I must say it has been a real progress now days not as picky as before! is the recipe for an easy to make chocolate chip cookie!
