Guess who is the host for Sweet Melissa Sundays this week? Melissa Murphy. Yeah, that's right! THE Melissa Murphy! How cool is that? The recipe for the week is Chocolate Chip Cookies with Toasted Almonds.
This recipe was actually the perfect choice for me this week. One, it wasn't too involved. Two, I was planning on making chocolate chip cookies anyway.
Nathan and I aren't fans of nuts in our CCCs, so I did half of the batch with almonds and half without. I preferred the ones without almonds, but no worries... The ones with the almonds were eaten just as quickly! For me, it is pretty hard to screw up a chocolate chip cookie. There is something about them that is just comforting and delicious, with or without nuts!
I did use a few of them to make Peanut Butter S'Mores (the original reason I was going to make CCCs) and they were fantastic, too. I guess no matter how you choose to make/use this recipe, it is GOOD!
Thanks to Melissa Murphy for not only hosting this week, but for creating such a wonderful cookbook! Head over to the SMS page for Melissa's write-up!
