The Ultimate Soft Chocolate Chip Cookie


If you are like me, you probably love chocolate chip cookies? They are a household favorite.

When I was growing up on the farm, my mother made chocolate chip cookies on a regular basis. Patiently, I would sit and watch her make them.  I could hardly wait until they came out of the hot oven just so I could sit and savor each bite.

Ever wonder how chocolate chip cookies came about?

Interestingly, they came about quite by accident. An American chef and husband owned a tourist lodge in Massachusetts and she became quite popular for her deserts. One day, she was mixing up a batch of cookies and realized she had run out of the regular chocolate she used. She then substituted it with a semisweet chocolate bar from Nestle. She cut up the chocolate bar, adding the chunks to the cookie dough, thinking it would melt like her regular chocolate. Alas, the chocolate chip cookie was born because the chunks only softened and never melted as she expected.

Who doesn’t like chocolate chip cookies!? Especially gooey, soft melt-in-your-mouth cookies. To this day, I always have a batch of chocolate chip cookies on-hand. When we have company I always like to offer them cookies.  I also give a lot of them away so I don’t eat them all.

My husband accidentally bought a package of 100 small brown paper bags. I was not sure what to do with all of them and then I came up with the idea to put the cookies I make and give them to my friends.  The kids especially love it and are always asking for more.
