When I was a little girl I spent a lot of time with my great grandmother and we would often spend time baking cookies. She was the best baker and even now, 20+ years after her death I still look back fondly on the time I spent with her in the kitchen. When we would bake it was always my job to cream the butter and the sugar together and I still think of her each time I do that.
Now that my girls are older I often spend time with them in the kitchen, baking cookies and telling them about my great-grandmother, and every holiday season my mom comes and all three generations spend time together in the kitchen baking.
One of our favorite things to bake any time of the year is this Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe. It is a variation of a recipe that every baker has used before but by adding some extra flour and brown sugar you get a thick, rich, sweet cookie that your entire family will gobble up in now time.
I hope you bring your family into the kitchen with you to make these cookies and make sweet memories, much like the memories I have of my great-grandmother.
