We recently came across a new recipe that has become our new go to cookie, and we wanted to share it with you today.

Now, we understand everyone claims to have the best chocolate chip cookie recipe, but we think this one is pretty close. They are a little crunchy on the outside, super soft on the inside and filled with so much delicious-ness.
