Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

    25 min

    If you like your cookies soft but not floury, these are for you. Try using M&Ms, Smarties, chopped white chocolate, etc. instead of the plain chocolate chips, if desired. Note that they firm well when cooled, so if you like soft cookies you may want to take them out of the oven a tad on the early side.
