    Back in school, I scheduled my ice cream reward party for 1:00, totally forgetting that I had recess duty that day at 1.  After realizing my mistake I asked a fellow teacher to switch me duties.  To sweeten the pot, I added that I would through in a couple of chocolate chip cookies from a new recipe I had just found.  The other teacher immediately agreed.

    I went ahead and made this new version of chocolate chip cookies.  The biggest differences I could find was the brown sugar amount was doubled and it used less eggs then I was used to.  I was anxious to see how they would come up.  As a word of caution these cookies really spread out so I would use a teaspoon of batter for each cookie.  The cookies turned a deep golden brown color and were much flatter then my usual chocolate chip.  I was a little worried but when I tasted the cookies all my fears vanished.

    The chocolate chip cookie was soft and chewy, just as promised!  There was also a rich buttery flavor to the cookie.  When I asked my husband whether or not he liked them he told me to throw out my usual recipe because this new recipe was so much better!  I think we have a winner!
