Adventures in Cookies

Jeff's all-time favorite treat is a good chocolate chip cookie.  They can't have oatmeal, and they have to be soft.  Sadly, he married a girl who a) couldn't care less for those cookies and b) can't make a good one to save her life.  (I promise the two are not related.)  Poor guy.

The other day I was irritated with housework and the Chloe was occupied with Lady and the Tramp.  I decided it was time to give chocolate chip cookies another go.  I turned to my pinterest boards for help. (I know I pin a lot of stuff.  I am happy to say that I do actually use a lot of what I pin)  I found the recipe I was looking for.  Gathered my supplies and set out.

Half way through, I realized it was a Friday and the kids were out.  It was so nice out that I thought I'll just let them walk home.  Which resulted in Lyndsi missing out on an Activity Days field trip. I felt horrible when I realized I'd spaced the time, but she didn't seem to mind.  In the end, the cookies were worth it.

They didn't turn out exactly as I'd imagined, so Saturday I set out to make a 2nd batch.  They turned out even better than the first.  Here is the recipe I used.  I did follow her instructions closely and ended up needing to bump the temperature up to 400 instead of 375.  To quote a neighbor we shared them with "The cookies are money!"

My husband's FAVE dessert is classic choc. chip cookies, too! We have found that the classic nestle toll house recipe is the fave. We add 1/4 cup flour to each recipe (like this weekend we made a triple batch in the bosch to freeze dough balls and added 3/4 cup. total). sounds like you found a winner, though!
