Aria Favorites: Quarantine Cookbook
Calling all bakers! Whether you’re a seasoned baker, a new COVID baker, or even someone who hates baking – listen up. One of the very first images that comes to mind when thinking of the word “dessert” is a chocolate chip cookie. From the store-bought, to the break-and-bake, to the ones homemade from Grandma’s house, they’re a staple dessert for almost everyone. Most people have a favorite recipe when it comes to these decadent delights, and we’re here to share one of ours from our very own Quarantine Cookbook.
Tip: Whether you plan on sharing or not (you won’t want to), maybe make a double batch because these ones you won’t be able to stop eating.
