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.
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!
