Chocolate Chip Cookies with an Almond Twist!

My boys are spoiled. I love tweaking and trying new things, and I love that they let me test all my concoctions out on them. haha Something new almost every night. Tonight’s new treat….. a twist on the plain chocolate chip cookie. Tonight I decided to add 1 tsp of Almond Extract to the mix, and WOW, was it ever GOOD! It gave it a bit more depth and flavor. No one knew what I had added….. they just knew that this cookie, tasted different. Better! hahaha  So, this one was a winner! If you give it a try, let me know what you think!
