THE BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies
Why I Love This Recipe
This is my mom's recipe for chocolate chip cookies. When I was a kid we would travel to Macy's in San Francisco, and Mrs. Field's Cookies was just starting out. My mom looked high and low to get the recipe for those chocolate chip cookies, then one day she found one, and this one is a blend of Nestle's recipe and Mrs. Field's. I've never met anyone who doesn't fall in love with these. In fact, I think I've baked them out of love many a times.
