It is that time of year, cookie swaps, holiday parties, gift giving. I always make a ton of cookies, my co-workers and the kids teachers looked forward to the home baked gifts. I find something relaxing about baking in the midst of all the holiday hustle and bustle.
This year I started a little later than normal, but I also don't want to make as many as normal. I really don't need an extra 10 pounds of Christmas cookies floating around the house after Christmas and into the New Year.
I started with Chocolate Chip Cookies, not just any recipe but my friend Amy's recipe. I don't quite know what makes this recipe come out better than any other chocolate chip recipe I have ever tried, but these really ROCK!
As a matter of fact the only person I ever heard say they didn't love these cookies was my little guy, Francis, and he loves anything with chocolate. I think it is the fact he is home sick and we are waiting the results of some tests from the doctors office, and I think right about now in his world nothing is good.
