Friday Night Baking In 3 Acts. Act 2 - The Chocolate Chip Cookie.
We have visitors coming to Connecticut next week. Our God Daughter Elenora and her dad, my nephew Nicholas. And we all know what that means. I have to make my Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.
This recipe never fails. You can switch out the additions. Any type of chip will work. You can add nuts if you want. Whatever you do,you will not be able to eat only one of these.
