My family loves it when I make cookies, but sometimes I am missing an ingredient and others I just don’t want to take the time to throw 15 ingredients together to make them. So, when I ran across this recipe, I was very excited. This cookie recipe can make all different types of cookies, from Nutella chocolate to peanut butter and chocolate chip to chocolate nut, the possibilities are endless.
