Hands down, moms always make the best cookies, right? Growing up, I LOVED my moms cookies. She would make peanut butter, snickerdoodle, chocolate chip, and more. All of them turned out perfect, were soft and squishy, and quite pretty. Once I got married and began to make my own, I had to learn the fine art of it. To this day, both my mom and I can make the exact same recipe, and of course, I think hers turn out better, hehe!!
This past weekend, my parents came into town to celebrate my birthday. The day before they left, she whipped up a batch of these cookies so we could “have some yummy cookies on hand”, and wow, we were quite happy!! These are packed with chocolate chips, moist, and literally fall apart in your mouth. The kids were quite excited to be her taste testers and gave their stamp of approval!
