Being a girl, every now and then I get the hankering for some chocolate...it's actually quite often that this need arises, but frequency's not important. Sometimes I fulfill this need in the form of ice cream or a candybar, but most of the time I'll make my Momma's chocolate chip cookies. These aren't just any chocolate chip cookies...I swear they will be the thing to finally bring about world peace and cure deadly diseases when the leaders of our world will ever pull their heads out of their you-know-whats. I'm not gonna lie to you, a lot of the batter never makes it to baked cookie form because I LOVE LOVE LOVE the dough so very much that I eat it right out of the bowl. You will, too, I just know it! Lucky for me Rich is afraid of getting salmonella, so I get all the dough to myself! I made a batch last week, and although I enjoyed my dough and a few of the actual cookies about 30 of them went into the garbage can at the freaking Stadium of Fire on the 4th of July...apparently my food-smuggling skills aren't what I thought they were! It was a shame, but I'm sure whichever homeless guy or gal who raided that garbage had the sugar-high of their life that night hahaha. I never can seem to get them to taste exactly like when Mom makes them, but any way you stack them they will satisfy your chocolate craving...I promise!!!
