Hey! I am so glad you stopped by to check out my recent bakes. My name is Kelsey. I have dedicated 2021 to baking from my favorite baking publication – Bake from Scratch. Each quarter is dedicated to one main category of baking: cakes, breads, pies/pastries, cookies/miscellaneous. I am so excited to learn how to master (or try to master) each of these. Follow me along on my journey!
I have several go-to recipes for times when I have friends over, potlucks, and other get-togethers. This is one of those recipes! These cookies aren’t anything fancy but they are very easy to make and are liked by all. The recipe is from Nestle, I found it on the back of a Nestle’s semi-sweet chocolate chip bag but I don’t typically see it on the back of them anymore. Thankfully Google is a great friend of mine so I always have it available, and now so do you! If you have not tried a double-chocolate chip recipe yet, this is the one for you!
