Double Chocolate Chip Cookies with Almonds

I’ve been working on a particularly grueling project at work, which has impacted the amount of cooking and baking that I’ve been doing. Long hours, late nights, jam-packed weekends are not a good recipe for a food blogger. Instead I’ve been pinning recipes and making a list of all of the things that I’d like to make when I’ve got time again. A couple of weeks ago, I came home from work and felt the urge to get into the kitchen, so I whipped up a batch of double chocolate chip cookies that I'd been yearning to try.

These cookies hit the spot. I ate 3 of them fresh from the oven and they were soft, chewy, sweet, salty and full of chocolately-gooey goodness. Even my significant other who’s not a big fan of double chocolate chip cookies snagged 3 or 4 of them, and proclaimed that these were grrrreat! High praise that I'm definitely taking.

Sigh, these were wonderful and they disappeared way to quickly, I should have made a double batch of these and froze them for times like these when I'm yearning for another sweet treat.

I do that too Rhonda! When I'm busy at work with no time for baking, I keep a list of all the stuff I want to make when I'm free. It helps manage the rage! hahaha
