Introduction: Naked Chocolate Chip Cookies

My family LOVES chocolate chip cookies, but I do not. Whenever they make them I ask if they can make them without chocolate chips. They always said no, until one day they eventually gave in.

You won't believe me when I tell you they taste nothing like chocolate chip cookies. These are by far my favourite cookie of all time - so delicious! I told my family and they didn't believe me - in fact they didn't even try them the first time we made them. They got so tired of me raving about how delicious they were they finally decided to taste them.

And, guess what? Everyone loved them and they agreed that they were scrumptious. They do not just taste like chocolate chip cookies minus the chocolate chips. And they do not taste bland the way everyone expected. They are a delectable delight of a cookie and you won't know this until you try making this recipe.

These cookies may not look the prettiest or the fanciest, but what they lack in looks they make up for in taste!

You and your family will love it! I would love to hear your thoughts after you've made these to see if you and your family feel the same way.
