Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies
“I never thought I'd ever put olive oil in chocolate chip cookie dough... until the one day I did!”
The last thing I thought about putting in chocolate chip cookie dough was olive oil! But one crazy day I did it, and they were seriously some of the best damn chocolate chip cookies I ever made!
This makes a huge batch, which I served for the open for inspections for selling my house. It’s really bittersweet to sell my first home, but my life has changed, and it’s time to find a new space to be creative in with my love It all really hit me when the ‘For Sale’ sign went up outside, but now it’s time to packing up and putting into storage till we find the right space. We’ve been looking and missed out on a few, but we are patient we will find ‘the one’! I’ve cooked way too many recipes than I care to recall in my kitchen studio, it’s been an amazing space, flooded with natural light that I’ll miss dearly.
