I’ve been doing a lot of Pinterest-ing lately, much more than I care to admit actually. Yesterday I ran across this post about these awesome chocolate chip cookies and so I repinned it to make some day. Then miraculously my 5 yr old Lily managed to complete her homework in less than 30 minutes; which normally is at least an hour + ordeal, all 5 sentences. With the extra time on my hands and cookies on my mind I suggested we bake.  She loves to help cook and I enjoy cooking with her, plus I seriously love chocolate chip cookies. A warm, gooey, chewy chocolate chip cookie is my absolute most favorite desert, hands down, no if, ands, or buts about it!!!!!  After retrieving the recipe, scanning the list of necessary ingredients and mixing up the dough I realize, much to our disappointment, that the dough is supposed to sit in the fridge for 24-36 hours BEFORE you bake them. DANG! So…..

Off we went to make some very overdue thank you cards for some of the Christmas gifts Lily received from family far away, not to mention some much needed distraction from the cookie dough we can’t bake…..well…. after a measly 2 hours we (meaning me) couldn’t wait and baked 4 cookies in our toaster oven.  If 2 hours in the fridge made them that good I can only imagine what 24 hours will do to the dough. O.M.G. it was good!!! Chewy, slightly crunchy exterior, super chocolatey…Alex, my teenage daughter, said they were the best ones I have ever made. I have tried hundreds of recipes to make them, hundreds! I honestly don’t think I have ever used the same recipe twice. I started the quest for the perfect recipe when I was in my early 20’s, if not before.

I can’t wait for tomorrow night. I know what I’m having for dinner, what I’m having for desert and my midnight snack. 😉
