chocolate chip and everything cookie

7.31.2008

Who doesn't love a cookie? Especially a chocolate chip cookie. Everyone can bake cookies but what makes those stand out above the rest? I'm not sure but I like to think the love and thought behind it. So next time you eat that homemade cookie, remember that someone thought about you that day. It will taste that much better. I adapted this from the Original NESTLE Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe. It reminds me of the episode of Friends where Monica tries to replicate the cookies made by Phoebe's grandmother-- who apparently got the recipe from an old friend named Nestle Tollhouse (with strong French accent).

  2. Yes, they are. If you like chewy cookies them very soft, just take them out from the oven earlier.
