Hi my name is Alessia, I am Cosette’s guest on the blog today. I’m also her daughter. I had ideas on what to write, and I chose to write about chocolate chip cookies. The next day after school, she asked me if I wanted to be her guest in the blog and I said yes.
Why I Chose Chocolate Chip Cookies
I like chocolate chip cookies because they have chocolate bits in them and when you take a bite you taste chocolate and cookie with butter. You could make it for special events or for fun. I think it is fun to make them with kids. Follow the recipe below and have fun!
