So this Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe was given to me by a friend Allanah in GRADE 9! That was a loooooong time ago. I still have the handwritten instructions. Her Mum would make this and we would devour them, mostly because I was at boarding school and was always hungry.
Good luck stopping at just one! I freeze them to pace myself and also to hide them from Coco… and my husband!
