Cookie Therapy 101

You heard the expression, “Hand in the cookie jar.” Well, one time when my brother had a friend over, this young man fell asleep eating my mom’s chocolate chip cookies. We found him asleep on the couch with his hand still in the bag of cookies where he had drifted off into a blissful sugary heaven.

My mom’s chocolate chip cookies were practically famous. She made thousands for our family, friends, and neighbors. She kept a special mixing bowl to accomodate 5 times the normal recipe. Baking cookies took most of the day, then she carefully packaged them into freezer bags for storage in the big freezer in the laundry. 

We all have a favorite food that reminds us of special times or special people. Enjoying this food can bring back good feelings of belonging and comfort. To this day, chocolate chip cookies are my favorite and always remind me of my mom. 

In this time of crisis, I want to share my chocolate chip cookie recipe with you. It’s not exactly like my mom’s recipe, as she used homemade butter from the farm. It’s very close though and I think they are the best cookies around! I hope this brings you a bit of comfort and happiness.
