They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so it’s no surprise I won my husband over that way! Shortly before we were married I asked my husband how he knew I was the one… his response “your cookies”. I have tweaked my recipe over the years, but the base for my recipe is the Cookies in a Jar recipe on About.com. I always under bake my cookies which makes these the softest, chewiest, most decadent chocolate chips cookies I’ve ever made. Enjoy!
