Chocolate Chip Cookies

ccc5Sometimes I give my kids cookies for breakfast. Let’s keep that one a secret. I do think it’s a kind gesture to wake up to the smell of fresh baked & warm cookies and a glass of ice cold milk. I don’t do this very often but enough to leave a positive impression. Hopefully it will create a lasting memory & something they can share with their own children one day. It’s on my courtesy list. I have a list of things I do that I think my kids would enjoy. I am not going to name everything on the list but I asked each of my kids what their favorites are and this is their collective response. 1. Warm cookies for breakfast 2. Warming the towels in the dryer to have when they get out of the bath. 3. Saying yes when they would normally think I would say no (ie. Kids: Mom can we have 7 chickens? Me: Yes, yes we can). I want my kids to know that life is full of surprises and more often than not they are wonderful.

One reason why I love this recipe so much is that you can alter the ingredients to change the flavor very easily. Instead of adding just chocolate chips you can add white chocolate chips & dried blueberries, dark chocolate chips & dried cranberries, white chocolate chips & milk chocolate chips. The list is endless. I have altered this recipe several times throughout the years and one thing is consistent — IT TASTES GREAT!
