Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

So the other night my husband and I were watching House M.D. I love Gregory House so much haha! So we are all engrossed in House and then all the sudden it hits. This sudden need for chocolate right now! I know you guys know the feeling. Of course nothing will do except warm chocolate chip cookies with milk. So of course we have the cookies you buy at the store and you could always warm them up in the microwave but they just are not the same as when you make them at home and have one right out of the oven. Making them home made also gives you an excuse to eat a ton of the cookie dough which *hangs head* yes I did. Sadly I had several table spoon fulls. This is the best dough I have ever eaten! Trust me that is saying something because I have eaten alot of dough (which is why I now zumba every day lol). I hope you guys will enjoy the cookies as much as my family did. They make a really soft yet just crunchy enough cookie. Picture of course is not the best. I am not a professional photographer. Gotta enjoy my son's panda placemat though right?
