I've been meaning to post these! My 4th of July fave.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

There is nothing more American than a warm and gooey chocolate chip cookie and a cold glass of milk. This is a classic recipe filled with nuts and chocolate chips. The cookie is buttery and tender. You get multiple chocolate chips and the right amount of walnuts in every bite. A super kid-friendly recipe. This makes a lot of cookies and would be great for a crowd.
