Rambling thoughts of a Yankee transplanted to the south.

Can you really ever get enough chocolate chip cookies?

My oldest daughter makes the best chocolate chip cookies besides my own. If fact, hers are probably better than mine. Yes, I am bragging. I am not usually a bragger, but they are really, really good. She made a batch yesterday and there are no cookies left. They are really soft and gooey, just the way I like them. I even get to lick the bowl. Yes, a grown adult whose daughter lets her lick the bowl. I tell my kids do not eat raw cookie dough and here I am eating raw cookie dough. DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO! haha!!

We do not even use any special recipe, just the one on the back of the Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie bag. It is the best one around. My best friend Debbie and I used to make these cookies in middle and high school. She was the one who taught me how to make chocolate chip cookies. I lived at her house during my teenage years. When you grow up in a middle-sized town in the 1980’s, do not have a driver’s license, and there is not a mall yet, you have to make your own fun. We used to rent a movie, eat pizza and other junk food, and make chocolate chip cookies (pig-out in the vernacular of the day). Debbie introduced me to cookie dough and I have been eating it ever since. She is a far better cook than I, but I can make two things really well. I can bake chocolate chip cookies and chocolate cake. See a theme here…

Chocolate chip cookies are one of life’s little gifts. If you have a daughter who can make them, you have a great gift.
