I found the latest version in my current bible study work book of all places, Kelly Minter's study entitled, What love is.
The recipe itself is pretty standard with a slight difference in the amount of flour, her's call for 3 cups verses the standard 2 and 1/4, which results in a taller more substantial cookie which is how we like them and pecans instead of walnuts.
They are delicious. A definite hit around here and even good enough to become my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe.
I will usually make half the cookie dough right away and store the rest in plastic wrap in the freezer for later. That way I don't end up eating them all at once and I still have a dozen or so to look forward to when the craving strikes.
Speaking of eating too many cookies...I
Between Nymfa's fajitas and Blue Bell ice cream everynight (my grandson still does not understand why we don't have Blue Bell in California) and lasagna and beef dips and pumpkin breads galore, I knew it was bound to happen. But you know what, I wouldn't change a thing. I say a good appetite is a sign of a good life and these last few days I've had a pretty great one.
But now it's back to reality and if I want to fit into the new fall clothes I have coming my way I better substitute a few salads and less sweet treats real quick. I guess that means finish these cookies as quickly as possible.
Happy Wednesday my friends.
