Pillowy Chocolate Chip Cookies
I'm on a winning streak with making up my own recipes for cookies, so I figured I'd give it another go. My sister was here recently and mentioned she wanted cookies, yet of course, she mentioned this when she had to leave in 20 minutes. Did she mention it in the three hours prior to her leaving? Nope. Not once. But that's my Melly... and I love her anyway. Plus, I really do owe her for years of being a mean older sister. Are we even now, Mel? Are we??
So being the WONDERFUL older sister that I am I quickly threw together some ingredients and came up with these. I liked how fluffy they stayed, not to mention how they were chock full of chips. They were easy to make and a whole batch was done quickly for her to take with her on the road. They were tasty, but I mean with two sticks of butter and two cups of chocolate chips they didn't stand a chance!
On another note, is the quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie ever over? I've made so many varieties and love them all, but I have yet to find my *this is the one* recipe. I just love chocolate chip cookies too much to commit to any one recipe for life I suppose... sigh.
