Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are definitely a  guilty pleasure of mine.  They are just the perfect treat to serve anytime or bring to any party because who doesn't love a classic chocolate chipper?  And this recipe has become my favorite so I'm really excited to share it and just in time for the weekend.  They are also really good with some ice cream just like our favorite LA treat - cookie ice cream sandwiches from Diddy Riese or Manhattan Beach Creamery
