Chocolate Chip Cookies!

The kids wanted to make some cookies for Teacher’s Day so I dug out this recipe that I had copied down from a book some time ago. It was my first time using it and I was hoping the cookies turned out OK. The last recipe I used turned out more of a cake-like texture and not the crispy cookies that I was looking for.


Here are the cookies fresh out of the oven. They were crispy on the outside but still slightly soft on the inside. Totally yummy tasting but the next time I think I would make them smaller bit-size pieces so there would be less crumbs lost in the house while the kids ate !

Here is a copy of the recipe if you want to try your hands at it.
