Aaron's Temptation Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sarah Peternel


These are, by far, the BEST chocolate chip cookies I have ever had. I came up with the recipe about 8 years ago and my husband, Aaron, for whom they are named, can't resist them! They stay soft for days after you bake them.....and they're irresistible fresh out of the oven. The best part is, you use whole wheat flour!
