I'm going to go ahead and claim that not only did I make ridiculously delicious ice cream with only four ingredients, but I also made the perfect chocolate chip cookies. I'm seriously on a roll. They're chewy and soft but crispy on the edges, just as any good cookie should be. The flavor is deep and rich from the butter and brown sugar, and the dark chocolate chunks are perfectly distributed and melty throughout the cookies. The best part is that they don't even need to chill that long- just thirty minutes in the fridge and you're good to go. Make the dough, refrigerate it, make the ice cream, freeze it, bake the dough, eat warm cookies, take out your ice cream, assemble some sandwiches. If that doesn't sound like a great day to you, get out. Seriously, you suck.
