Recipe Notes

  1. It's important to allow the cookie dough time to chill so the butter can solidify. Doing this will help make sure your cookies don't spread too much. 
  2. Allow your ingredients to come to room temperature before using. 
  3. You can use store bought chocolate chunks or chop a chocolate baking bar.
