The best chewy choc-chip cookies EVER

We all know there are two types of people in the world: the chewys and the crunchies. I happen to sit on the chewy side. Give me slightly undercooked and deliciously soft any day. I don’t not like crunchies. They’re perfectly fine people. They just don’t know what they’re missing out on.

Like really.

With the end of daylight savings and kids being excited about life in general, my girls have both been up around the 5am mark. It means the days are long, like realllly long. Lacey wanted to make something. Anything. I wanted to get rid of the excess Easter chocolate, so we decided on choc-chip cookies. “They’ll be chewy though, right?” she asked as we placed them in the oven.

Of course they would be. Chewy choc-chip cookies are the only way to go.

Lulu is at that age where she wants to be part of everything, so she dragged a chair over to the bench and helped us. I handed her a blob of dough and told her that we were going to ‘roll, roll, roll’ it.

She just plonked the whole blob in her mouth and decided to eat it instead. Yeah, I don’t think she’s at that rolling stage yet.
