Women ' s Month at Maison Orphée ends on a high note with Elizabeth's famous chocolate chip and olive oil cookie recipe!
When she brings a batch of these cookies to the office, they are gone in just a few minutes. No need to convince you, they are absolutely DIVINE!
The secret to this recipe lies in the use of extra virgin olive oil. The result? A crunchy texture on the outside and perfectly fluffy on the inside.
Let's get bakin'!
