Calling all cookie baking parents!
I was browsing through the other thread, and to be honest, while it's amusing I don't really find it too useful. I'm the best known cookie baking mom on our block, I've perfected all my recipes and love to try new ones. So...let's trade!
My favorites? I have one for oatmeal raisin chocolate chunk, which have applesauce in them and makes them nice and soft. I love cookies that come dripping with chocolate, so I use chunks and chop them up. I have never liked PB cookies. A good trail mix like oatmeal cookie is yummy too. To be honest, I like almost ALL cookies.
I have found that for me the secret is in the baking-if you time it just right, and take them out just when the top is set (not squishy but not hard), they'll be perfect. My philosophy is the more chocolate the better! I also like to use real butter and real vanilla. My favorite books are the Mrs. Fields cookies books. I have one that is literally falling apart it's been used so much. Brownies made by me are usually totally gooey and rich. I love to make squares too. I put these things in my son's lunch box instead of the store bought sugary junk at the store, and now that I'm tree nut allergic, it's something I can eat too.
So I'll start off with a favorite recipe!
