Moms' Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated on July 19, 2012

One of my favorite things growing up was when my mom made chocolate chip cookies. It was a special time that my mom and I had. We could enjoy cooking together, while catching up on things going on in eachother's lives. Now that I'm all grown up, and have a family of my own I hope to keep the tradition alive and bake chocolate chip cookies with my own son. Thanks mom for the wonderful memories and of course the wonderful tasty cookies!
