Sometimes things go wrong. Horribly wrong. You forget your credit card at home, your luggage gets lost during travel, the people you need to get ahold of won't answer the phone, you get a piece of wood stuck in your wrist. Things just happen.
So sometimes you've just got to make chocolate chip cookies. They're simple. They're not the type of thing that goes horribly wrong... most of the time. Chocolate chip cookies are like a safety blanket. A delicious, chocolatey safety blanket.
These cookies are more of the soft variety. They tend to stay soft even days after if they are stored in an airtight container.
