July Favorites

Here are the things that I have been enjoying this month.
The last week of June I ordered my first pair of sunglasses from Quay Australia. I was very excited for this pair not only because it was one of the collaborations they had with Chrisspy a popular Youtube Guru, but because it was the sunglasses I was on the hunt for! Chrisspy came out with about three sunglasses with Quay and this pair is in the style called 'Jet Lag'. This one was my favorite of the bunch and had been calling my name ever since she uploaded her video talking all about the sunnies she was releasing. I love absolutely everything about this pair; the style for one, the matte black finish, it is one of the most comfortable pair of sunglasses I've ever worn, it's the perfect size, how reflective the lens is and the rose gold tint of the lens. Honestly I was pretty much sold as soon as I saw the shade of the lens and how reflective the lens were. I love anything rose gold and I had really been wanting a pair of sunglasses that were very reflective to where you can't even see my eyes. I have been wearing these the entire month on July, I just love them! The protective bag the glasses came in is also so cute. I love the color and how its holographic.
Let's talk about another pair of glasses but this time prescription ones. I have mentioned that I order my glasses from Zenni Optical in the past and in the beginning of this month I placed an order from them during their 4th of July sale. I really like the glasses from Zenni, the quality is very good and the prices go from very cheap to a little more pricey. Since I have to wear glasses I like that I can order multiple pairs if I'd like for cheap, plus I enjoy have different styles to choose from day to day. I had really been wanting to purchase a clear frame pair and when I found this pair online I was so excited and I've been obsessed with them since I received it. These clear glasses are so much fun to wear out especially if I dress up a little more. I feel they are also cute to wear out since the frames are clear I don't feel they hide my face or makeup. I don't like to wear my glasses that have a black frame out when I'm all done up because I feel they grab more attention over anything else on my face and these clear ones don't. They also work as a really great accessory. Zenni doesn't only sell prescription glasses but they also sell prescription sunglasses and non prescription glasses. I have tried a different website to order glasses from and it didn't work out. I am going to stick with Zenni since they have never let me down before.
Next I want to talk about a sheet mask. I received this Farmacy sheet mask from Boxycharm last month and face masks is something I love to use. This mask came in a three pack which was made specifically for Boxycharm and it is the hydrating coconut gel mask. This mask is supposed to hydrate and restore the skins natural balance and even skin tone. The way you are meant to use sheet masks is applying it to the face, leaving it for whatever suggested time, then once you remove the sheet you pat the remainder fluids from the mask into the skin and let dry. After using this mask for the first time, the next morning I woke up with my face glowing. My face was so radiant and plump! I went ahead and did my usual morning skin care routine followed by doing my makeup and got ready for the day. My makeup applied and lasted beautifully that day and I'd like to think it was from this mask. I now only have one sheet left and I know it is something I am going to have to order and soon.
Another item I received from a subscription that I have been loving is this intensive blemish serum from Evologie. This guy came to me just in time too, I had ran out of the cream I used for dark spots and post blemish marks and I was in need of repurchasing a new one. This cream serum is meant to get rid of scarring and hyper pigmentation while targeting stubborn blemishes. I had a few breakouts on my chin some just weren't going away and others left a mark. I started using this serum every other day just in case it would have been too harsh on my skin and my chin began to clear up within a week. I'm sure if I used it every day with would have helped speed the process up. As of today my skin is completely clear of any blemish and dark spots thanks to Evologie. The only thing I don't  like about this cream is the smell. It smells so strong it as some kind of chemical scent which is why I chose to only use it every other day to prevent my skin from freaking out. Once I run out of this I may look into ordering a full sized bottle of it since I really like to have a product like this in my night time routine.
Lastly for my favorites I wanted to share the Philosophy Purity one-step facial cleanser. I used to use this cleaner all the time maybe eight months to a year ago but then I started using the Clarisonic cleaner that came free when I purchased it. After that I kind of forgot about this cleanser until recently when I was just about done with the Clarisonic cleanser and decided I didn't want to repurchase it. I remembered I still had a practically brand new bottle of the Purity face wash and began using it once again. I forgot how much I really enjoyed using this cleaner. It really does a great job getting rid of everything on your face. The only thing I wish was that this cleanser would foam up a bit more I like more foamy face washes. I spoke a lot more about this cleaner on my updated night time skin care routine, so if you are interested feel free to check that out.

Have you tried any of these products? I cannot believe July is already over and soon it will be August!

The Walt Disney Family Museum

Yesterday Rudy and I drove up to San Francisco to spend the morning at the Walt Disney Family Museum. We've been to this place a few times together already but I absolutely love it. This museum is what I like to call my home away from home aka Disneyland, I say the same thing about the Disney Store haha. I had been telling Rudy for a couple of months now how I had been wanting to go back to the Walt Disney museum but his work schedule had been very crazy and he had been working nearly every Saturday since June. This weekend we finally got some us time and it was nice to get away from the San Jose heat for a few hours.

Updated | Night Time Skin Care Routine

Today I am going to share with you all my updated night time skin care routine.

I don't wear makeup very often and I typically only wear it on the weekends. If I am wearing makeup once I am going to start on my night time routine I will use either one or both of these following products.























If I am wearing a lot of mascara, eyeliner, or just a lot of eye makeup I grab a cotton round and wet it with some Micellar Cleansing Water. This one is from the brand Garnier. I like to place the cotton round onto my eye and just let the water soak up all my eye makeup and kind of soften it all up. This water is great because it doesn't burn my eyes at all while Im trying to get all of the mascara off. I like to use this mainly for just my eyes to make removing my makeup a little bit easier.

To get the rest of my face makeup off I like to use makeup remover wipes. I have recently been using the Aveeno Positively Radiant wipes. I do still love the Simple wipes I shared on my last skin care routine these are just the newest ones I purchased and I wanted to give a try. These wipes are gentle enough for me to use on my sensitive skin and it smells amazing. It does a really good job at removing most of my makeup off including my Esteé Lauder Double Wear foundation.
Every single night I use my Clarisonic Mia 2. This is probably the most important step in my skin care routine and I have noticed the biggest change in my skin since I began using it almost a year ago. Once I purchased this I made a whole review on it, if you are interest in reading all about my thoughts along with seeing some before and after photos here is the link to my review. My skin has improved so much since adding this to my routine and it has never broken out like it used to. I love this thing and I'm always raving about it to my friends. Once I am done removing my makeup with the wipes I use this and once I am done I can still see some left over makeup on the brush head. That just goes to show how deep into your pores the Calrisonic goes and cleans your skin. You can use this twice a day, morning and at night but I choose to only use it at night time. For the best results it is suggested to not skip a day from using the Clarisonic and I have been using it every single night.

The face wash I use along with the Clarisonic was the refreshing gel cleanser from the Clarisonic brand. I began using that one once I received my Clarisonic because it came with it for free. Once I finished that bottle I repurchased it and I recently ran out of it and I am now back to using my Purity one step facial cleanser. I've always loved Purity but I began adding new products to my routine along with trying out new ones that I eventually dropped it. I decided to go back to this one because I still had this huge bottle and I didn't want it to go to waste and because I recently found out that the Clarisonic products, not the Clarisonic brush itself, face washes ect. are tested on animals. Purity really is a one step cleanser because it does a great job removing all the left over make up from my face. It leaves my face feeling fresh and it also balances the skin.
After my face is all cleansed and dry I like to go in with two different toners for night time. The first toner I use is the Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic. I have been using this product for over a year and I love it. This is an exfoliating toner which gets rid of dead skin cells for a more healthier look. This toner also contains 5% of glycolic acid and is supposed to tone, firm, and tighten the skin. When I first began using the glow tonic I noticed my skin looking a lot more brighter and healthy.

I then like to go in with my Tea Tree Water Toner from Lush that I used in the morning.
Once my toners have fully dried I apply eye cream. For night time I usually use the Pūr-lisse that I mentioned on my morning routine so I won't get into it all over again. I am still looking for  a good night time eye cream so please leave me your favorite eye cream or some recommendations down below so I can check them out.
The next thing I use is a serum and the one I have been using and loving is the Full of Grace serum from Lush. This item was also on a monthly favorite in the past. I was looking for a serum for my night time routine and I found exactly that in this bar. It is a very hydrating and I love to really hydrate my skin at night time so my skin and looks and feels its best in the morning. This serum has tons of hydrating butters packed into it yet is absorb very quick into the skin. The people at Lush once told me that this serum is great to apply underneath other products such as masks. They said it helps the product sink into the skin for better results so I figured it would do the same with all my night time products. Full of Grace also claims to give your skin elasticity and a glow. I definitely see the glow part. I love to use this even though I am oily that is why I choose to only use it at night. It does a great job to hydrate my skin and you need that even if you have oily skin.
I like to apply some kind of cream that helps with post acne marks, dark spots and brightening the skin. I have been using this Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial from Korres for a year now and I love it. Ever since I received the small little sample tube from Sephora I have noticed a huge difference in my skin. This thing has helped clear most of my post breakout spots even older ones from before I even owned it. It really has done a great job at getting the job done and I now have close to no spots on my face unless it is a new one. I recently ran out of it and I have been debating whether to repurchase this cream once again or try out another one from a different brand. I don't like to use the same product for too long especially one I use everyday because your skin can become a custom to it therefore the product won't work the same or at all anymore. That is why I always switch off with moisturizers.
Next I go in with either one of my night time moisturizers. I specifically only use these ones at night because they are both on the more thicker and more hydrating side and I love to use those kinds at night. I also switch off from day to day with these moisturizers.

I love Purity and since I loved it so much I really wanted to try a moisturizer from Philosophy for the night time. I was in the market for a new cream and I had heard good things about this Hope in a Jar moisturizer. Hope in a Jar is high performance moisturizer that claims to give you a smooth and radiant complexion. It also helps with fine lines, wrinkles, dullness and uneven texture. I enjoy this moisturizer because it looks and feel very think at first but once you begin to rub it into your hands or face it melts and feels like water. I always wake up with my skin looking great the next morning.

The second moisturizer is another item from Korres and this one is the Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing and Brightening cream. This is another thick cream but absorbs nicely into the skin and moisturizes along with brightening your skin for up to 24 hours. This cream contains wild rose oil and vitamin C which helps with fine lines and discoloration. I really like all of the products that I have tried from this brand. Everything from Korres have always left my skin feeling and looking amazing.
Lastly whenever I have a break out I always use the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. This is one product that still hasn't changed from my previous skin care routine post and I will never live without it. This thing is magic in the bottle when it comes to getting rid of a pimple. In the bottom of the bottle there is pink powder and then on top is a clear liquid. Do Not Shake the bottle! You want to grab a Q-tip dip it all the way into the end of the bottle where the powder is and lift it up. Then dab it where ever you have a break out and you will see a huge difference in size in the morning. When I use this my pimple is either completely gone or almost completely gone. I recommend this to everyone and I even have Rudy using this every now and then when he needs it.

I think I go a little extra for my night time skin care routine but it's definitely worth it in the long run. I like to do a lot more in my routine at night so all the products can really sink into the skin at night while I am asleep. A lot of my night time products are on the pricier side but I truly believe that skin care is an investment because you want to preserve your youth for as long as possible. I hope you guys enjoyed reading my updated skin care routine I know I always enjoy watching these types of videos. I would also love to hear some of your favorite products and brands. I love to try out new things and maybe I can find something I end up loving more than what I am currently using.

My Top Favorite B&BW Candles: Summer Edition

Hi everyone, today I am back with another one of my top favorite series. If any of you know me then you would know that I am a huge candle hoarder! I love Bath & Body Works candles and they have my favorite candles on the market. I have close to 100 candles by now to be completely honest. I love how every season they are constantly bringing out new scents along with some of their most famous signature scents. I'm constantly popping in their store to see whats new. I have so many favorite candles of theirs and I really want to keep these kinds of posts to a minimum. I decided for today I wanted to share some of my favorite candles for summer time. In the future once each season approaches I will make a post dedicated to my favorite fall candles, followed my winter then spring which should be fun.
I am going to start off with my most favorite candle ever which is Peach Bellini. Of course this is my all time favorite candle of theirs I love everything peach. Bath & Body Works carry different peach scented candles but this one is my absolute favorite. There's just something about Peach Bellini every time I smell this candle it feels very refreshing. The peach scent is very strong in my opinion but that's why I love it so much. The other peach scented candles they carry are more subtle and this one is a splash of bubbly peachiness. I think the reason why this candle has such a burst of peach scent because it contains orange and mandarin and I love those two scents. If there is a candle I would highly suggest anyone to purchase from Bath & Body Works it would be this one! B&BW are always re-releasing this scent so it always in a new and different packaging. The packing of this candle is actually from a collection they released last spring so just keep an eye out or ask an employee to show you where they are.

Notes: white peach, sweet orange peel, yellow mandarin, jasmine with a pop of blackcurrant.

There is no surprise here that my second favorite is another peach scent. This is Georgia Peach which smells of a delicious juicy peach. This candle unlike Peach Bellini is a much subtle scent also a bit sweeter. This scent is so simple and heavenly not at all over powering either, that is one thing I do not enjoy when my candles are too over powering in fragrance and overly sweet. This candle is perfect for a nice wash of sweet peach throughout your house. Every time B&BW is having a candle sale I will purchase either one of these two peach candles and trust me when I say I have tons as back ups.

Notes: Georgia peaches, dewy petals, hint of vanilla.

For my third favorite candle, this is one of the newest candles I was introduced to and I even spoke about it on my spring essentials post. I am talking about the Lemon Mint Tea candle. Back in March was when I first noticed this candle  mainly because of its cute packaging. I didn't usually gravitate towards lemon scented candles just because at the time I was not a fan what so ever of anything lemon. Every time I would go into the store I would find myself sniffing it and then I'd put it down. Randomly one morning I woke up with the urge of needing that candle in my life and I am so happy about that. I am so obsessed with this candle that it is actually coming to a close tie to Peach Bellini. This candle is so fresh because of the lemon and smells so clean. I already have a few stocked up for back ups that is how much I'm loving this candle. Every time I finish cleaning my room floor mopped and all I light this candle up and my room smells and feels extra clean. This candle is perfect for summer and even spring which was when I most burned it. I can also have this candle burning all day without getting tired of it. This candle like many other of theirs is always being re-released and it recently came out in new packing and name. Its still very similar its just labeled as Lemon Mint Leaf. I have been really into lemon scented candles lately.

Notes: spearmint leaves, zesty lemon, verbena.
I was a bit hesitant of even sharing this next candle only because it hasn't been re-released, unless I haven't noticed it. This candle was released last year it even has the same packaging as the peach Bellini and I'm assuming this was one of their one time launch scent which is sad because it's clearly a favorite of mine. This is the Cherry Blossom Sangria and this candle is filled of fun scents. This is more of a fruity scent yet not over powering at all. As soon as I open up the candle I can smell the deliciousness of the cherry and raspberries! This scent is perfect to have burning on a nice warm afternoon while you are relaxing.

Notes: cherry nectar, apple slices, wild raspberries.

My last candle is a one I'm surprised I'm even including in my top five favorites since I don't like anything coconut scented. I think the reason why I like Tiki Beach is because once again this scent is very subtle and not over powering. Its strange to think that a candle can make you feel warm just by its scent. It smells very tropical and clean all at the same time. This is also another candle that I have purchase countless amount of times and had few back ups. This candle like all the rest of the ones I've shared today are a staple in my collection or obsession which every you'd like to call it haha.

Notes: vanilla musk, orchids, toasted coconut.

I would love to share some alternative brands other than Bath & Body Works because I have heard people say their candles are overpriced but this my favorite candle brand. I also never purchase their candles unless they are on sale for 2 for $24 which they do very often and they always send me coupons along constantly sending coupons out to my email. I always save my $10 off coupons for when the candles are on sale that is when I make sure to stock up!  If there is any candles you guys absolutely love please feel free to share I would love to try some new scents out.

Updated | Morning Skin Care Routine

Today I am going to be sharing with you my updated morning skin care routine. I was planning on having my morning and night time routines combined into one post but that would have been a really long post. By splitting them into two different posts it will allow me to really get into details on some of the products that I will be sharing. It was last summer in August that I shared my at the time current skin care routine and since then a few things have changed. I have added some new items to my routine along with removing some others. I feel like my skin is at its best right now besides a few days out of the month when my period rolls around, just like every girl out there I get a couple break outs here and there. All the products that I am currently using I feel has been working wonders on my skin. I'm always sharing with my friends the products that I'm loving and that have been working well for me. Today I wanted to do the same and share them with all of you.

*Quick Disclaimer:* Please keep in mind that I'm not a professional or expert when it comes to skin care. I have learned all these things on my own by doing my research, from experience, and from specialists from whichever stores where I purchased these products. Also I have oily and acne prone skin and most of these products are mainly to help with that.
Starting off with the first product(s) I use in the morning, a face cleanser. I've been using two from Lush and I have already spoken about both of them here on a past monthly favorites. These are both face and body cleansers but I only use it for my face. I first was introduced to Dark Angels cleanser back in March then shortly after I picked up Herbalism and I switch between these two every day. I use them both exactly the same, I first wet my face with warm water, always use warm water on your face. Then I grab a small yet generous sized chunk and drip water onto it. You don't want to use too much water and you don't want the product to become very runny. You will want the consistency to be paste like, then I rub it onto my face in circular motion. Rinse and pat dry.

Dark Angels cleanser is a black sugar and charcoal cleanser. It gently exfoliates your skin and always leaves my face feeling clean, fresh and super soft. This is great for people with sensitive and oily skin also people who are acne prone. This cleanser is great because it goes deep into the skin and helps prevent breakouts too. I love this stuff, I am almost out of it and I will definitely repurchased it. Rudy even loves using this too. It is also gentle enough for you to use everyday if that is what you choose to do.

Herbalism cleanser is also targeted for people who battle oily and acne prone skin. This product is supposed to help balance the oils of your skin but what I love most about this is that when I have a couple of break outs, usually around my jaw and chin,  I spend a little more time rubbing the product into my skin and I have noticed that it helps my break outs disappear a lot faster than it used to in the past. At first I was a little unsure about this cleanser because I felt I wasn't seeing any result but I actually do and love it. At one point I was battling with a small break out on the side of my neck and once I started to use Herbalism on it I saw a huge difference by the second morning!

I love both these product for different reasons as you see, which is why I need to have them both in my morning routine. One day I'll use dark angels and the next herbalism that way I get the effects of both consistently. If I am struggling with a bad break out or pimple that I really want to go away quick I use herbalism two days straight and it helps tremendously. I've already purchased my second pot of it too!
After I pat dry my face I always spray my face with some of my Tea Tree Water Toner. I have also mentioned this toner on a monthly favorite for a good reason. As soon as I spray this over my face I immediately feel refreshed. This water is a toner so it helps with toning your skin along with brightening. Tea tree is also really good for oily skin, it helps clear the excess oils on the skin and it's also really good with reducing redness. I have noticed a huge difference with my skin since adding all these Lush products into my routine and the oiliness being the number one change. I do still get oily on my T-Zone but it is nothing compared to before and I am very happy these all have been working for me with summer being around the corner. I love that Lush is a cruelty free brand and usually fresh products as ingredients. I am more than happy to use products that are good for my skin.
For morning moisturizers I like to switch off with a few different ones every day that why my skin doesn't become accustomed to one. I also mentioned doing this on my skin care routine post from last year. Here are the three moisturizers I have been currently using.

Earlier this year I started using this Aveeno Clear Complexion daily moisturizer. I wanted something that would help my skin with its break outs during that time of the month. This moisturizer contains Salicylic Acid which is supposed to help clear up your blemishes along with preventing them. I like this moisturizer because it does exactly that, that doesn't mean you won't never get a pimple again but I have noticed that I get less break outs. It also gives my oily skin the perfect amount of moisture without making me look greasy. This product does not contain any SPF which I wished it did so make sure to put someone before of after your moisturizer. Products that help with blemishes tend to make your skin a lot more sensitive to the sun so try to avoid it as much as possible and always protect your skin.

I shared this Origins GinZing Energy Boosting moisturizer on my skin care routine from last year but I realized I didn't say anything about it nor did I mention why I liked it. I LOVE the brand Origins, they really have some of the best skin care products I have ever tried. I also love this moisturizer since the first time I started using it. This moisturizer is supposed to give your skin a healthy vibrant glow. It smells amazing like fresh oranges a scent I really enjoy. The smell right in the morning is the perfect wake me up. It also hydrates my skin just enough without making my skin feel sticky. A moisturizer that doesn't feel heavy or make me look oily is ideal for me.

Lastly every couple of days I use the Pixi By Petra Glowtion Day Due, I even shared this in my March Favorites. This product is a lightweight moisturizer that gives a beautiful glow to your skin. It really is a lightweight moisturizer and because it has a radiance to it I was a bit worried on how it would wear on my oily skin. When I wear this I don't find my skin looking extra oily because of it. I love to wear this underneath my makeup because it gives off such a beautiful natural glow without being excessive. It is also said that this moisturizer blurs imperfections too but I never really paid attention to that.
With any moisturizer I use I always use one pump of the Bare Minerals Biolucent. This is a brightening treatment and I have been using this for over a year now. I love this stuff! It has helped my skin so much with making dark spots from blemishes disappear and it gives my skin a gorgeous natural light radiance. I believe its now discontinued, months ago when I was going to reorder this I noticed it was on sale online at Sephora then at one point it was completely gone. Another day while I was browsing through their sale items I saw it was back in stock so I made sure to order a few back ups and now it's no longer on their website. Bare Minerals did come out with a new skin care line of products and I know they suggest that if you loved this Biolucent treatment to try out their new Skinlogevity. I'm thinking this is probably a new version of the Biolucent treatment with new improvements and maybe other benefits. I may give this product a try once I am out of my back ups. I am still upset that they discontinued it.
For the final step of my morning routine I apply some eye cream. I have been switching between these two along with sample ones I receive from Sephora when I do an online order.

I received the Pūr-lisse one in a Ipsy bag a few months back and I've enjoyed it. It isn't very thick and  it absorbs into my skin very quickly which I really appreciate. I don't know if I have noticed any difference with using it. I usually use this eye cream at night but sometimes I do use it in the mornings. The other eye cream I use is the Benefit it's potent eye cream and I have owned it for quite some time now. This cream I usually use in the mornings.

I am almost out of both these eye creams and I am looking to try some new ones. I'm not sure which brand owns the best eye cream so if you have a favorite one please let me know on the comments below I would really appreciate it. I have a brand new eye cream from Origins that I received apart of a box set along with other items and I will probably begin using it soon. I used it in the past and enjoyed but once again it's another eye cream that I don't know if I really saw any results while using it. 

This is the end of my morning skin care routine, pretty quick and simple. I really hope this helps at least one of you out. I will be back next week with my night time routine and there is a few more extra steps compared to my morning routine.

Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been meaning to share this recipe since back in March but I completely forgot about it, better late than never right? I have a huge sweet tooth as many of you  may know by now.  When I first tried out these cookies I was obsessed! I wanted to eat them all and not share any with Rudy haha. Once I got my hands on the recipe I made some for my house and they didn't last three days! Rudy and I both loved them and I even caught my dad taking a couple throughout the day. I'm always telling my friends about these delicious new cookies I've been making and even set some aside for Imelda and she too loved them. A couple days later she even texted me and told me her boyfriend loved them as well and ate almost all of them haha.

This recipe is very easy to make but it is a little more time consuming than the last cookie recipe I shared but so very worth it! I'm so excited to finally share this with you guys and I hope some of you try making it yourself and let me know how you like it.
Ingredients you will need:
- 3 cups of all purpose flower
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon of fine salt
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
- 2 sticks of butter, soften
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (I like to add a little more, 2 teaspoon in total.)
- 3/4 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup of caramel bits (I like to add a little bit more of this.)
- Flakey sea salt ( A Sea Salt Grinder is the easiest to use.)

*Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
In a large bowl whisk in  your flour, baking powder, baking soda and fine salt together.
In an electric mixer beat your brown sugar, granulated sugar and butter together until it is light and fluffy for about 3 minutes. 
Once its fluffy add one egg at a time making sure that everything is very well mixed together after each addition follow by adding your vanilla extract. 
Add the flour mixture a couple of cups at a time making sure everything is blended well together.
Mix in your chocolate chips and caramel bits.
I find it easiest to use a spoon and scoop out the dough then roll them into balls. I then put them onto a baking tray with plenty of space between each cookies. 
Using a sea salt grinder I then twist the grinder once over top each cookie dough and let bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Rotating the tray will help give the cookies an even coat of that golden brown shade.
This recipe depending on how big I roll the dough usually makes me more than 2 dozen cookies.
These cookies have become one of my favorites to make especially since Rudy and I both love them so much. I think I may actually like this one a little bit more than my best homemade chocolate chip cookie recipe. Feel free to try and make both of these recipes out and let me know which is your favorite.
