Mom's Chocolate Chip Log Cookies
Why I Love This Recipe
This is a cookie favorite my dear mother used to bake for the family. We thought the recipe was lost forever when Mom passed away many years ago. Just last winter while I was going through some of Mom's old photos, there tucked away in the old shoebox was this recipe in her handwriting. What a treasure for me to discover...Mom's Chocolate chip log cookies an d a copy of her handwriting!
