Sometimes it is the simple things in life that make me happy, like chocolate chip cookies and a tall glass of cold milk. Are you a cookie dough eater or a cookie eater???  I think I am both!  So are my kids.  Against the rule of not eating raw eggs, we still enjoy a spoonful of cookie dough every time we make cookies.  Then of course we have to lick the bowl too!  This recipe is my easiest recipe for chocolate chip cookies and literally takes 5 minutes to through together.  It has been a crowd pleaser for all the teenagers in my house this summer.  If you take them out of the oven just when the begin to brown they will be the perfect combination of crunchy and gooey.  Enjoy!!!
