I love baking. I love rolling up my sleeves, putting on my apron, and whipping up something delicious that will have my family saying “ohhh” and “ahhhh”.
There are just some days, however, when I’d like to bake…but there are just too many other chores that need to be done and I don’t have the time I would like to devote to my baking.
Today was one of those days. First, there was work to go to…then when I got home, there was laundry to wash, bathrooms to clean, and other assorted chores to do. I still wanted to bake though, since I hadn’t baked any new goodies since before Easter. I decided to go to my recipe box, which is quite out of order and stuffed full, and thumb through it – in search of a quick dessert to bake. I finally found this quick and easy chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Now, just because a recipe is quick and easy to make, doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice taste. These cookies are very delicious!! Also, the cheesecake pudding mix adds a little something special that will have everyone who tastes them saying “Yum”!!
