These chocolate chip cookies may not be perfect but they are completely delicious. These can be made in 20 minutes and aren’t just your average cookie.
So we have this tradition in my house, every time we have guests over we ask Carmen to make pancakes. In fact we borderline verbally harass her until she makes them. But when we ask for pancakes we actually mean chocolate chip cookies. Confused? I bet.
The thing is, Carmen’s chocolate chip cookies come out completely flat. This could be because of the lack of flour, or because she mixes everything together all at once. I’m not totally sure exactly what makes these cookies come out flat, but either way we don’t care. They’re really good. These are great to complete your night after an amazing dinner of roasted chicken with tarragon and apple cider sangria. YUM.
You just have to try these to understand why we love them so much. The best part is that (if you move fast) these can be done in about 20 minutes! So easy. If you’re friends or family ask why they’re flat, you just tell them to shhhhh and eat the damn cookie. They’ll be quiet once they’ve tasted them.
If you’re looking for a treat for Santa and yourself go ahead a whip up a batch, eat half and leave the other half on a plate for the man himself!
