Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

If there's one thing I love baking this season, it's cookies. My favorite thing to bake is usually cakes or cupcakes. But Christmas just seems to call for cookies. I made this cookie recipe from pinterest recently, and while I thought they were good, my husband loved them and was begging me to make more. So I did, and thought I would share with my readers too!
