Fancy Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are not the typical quick cookies you might be used to whipping up and making fast any time you are craving cookies. These cookies are perfect to make as a birthday gift, for a party, or when you have guests over. They have turbinado sugar in addition to white and brown sugar, dark chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chunks. You can also get extra fancy and add sea salt on top of them. As a dough eater myself, it was different eating the dough with the extra crunch the turbinado sugar added; but it still tasted really good. These cookies stay soft and chewy too. 🙂
