Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

cookies

Don’t these look delicious?  Our little boy comes home from school and the first thing he ask for is food.  Today I had a chocolate craving so this is what I made, plus I bought myself a new cookie jar and I had to have cookies for it.

Just a little tidbit about myself…Several years ago, I worked for our local (no-kill) Animal Shelter and we have 4 dogs, which 3 are rescued.  One of those dogs was bought and he is a Basset Hound (Copper).  So,  when I saw this cookie jar and it was a Basset Hound, I had to purchase it.  It is so adorable and I bought it at Wal-Mart.  And who watches The Pioneer Woman on Food Network?  Yes, she has a whole line of cookware, bowls, plates and even Charlie Cookie Jars.
