Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

These Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies are delicious, crispy from outside and soft and chewy in the middle. This is a very simple and recipe which you can prepare without any mistakes. My kids enjoyed these cookies very much and they liked it when it is warm. Actually, you can shape the dough into balls and freeze them for up to 1 month and use it whenever you require.
