I knew I wanted to make Chocolate Chip Cookies for Santa and then I saw this recipe from Grits! It is easy and so delicious! I think it's a great recipe to have on hand during the holidays to use as hostess, teacher, neighbor, or co-worker gifts!
I sent some in with Daniel for their gift exchange with a gift card attached, it was the perfect addition. As nice as gift cards are, to me it looks nicer when attached to a bag of sweets.
We are giving a bag of these to all of the girl's Waumba Land teachers as well, to thank them for being so sweet to our girls and helping make sure their time at church is wonderful.
Did I mention they are super easy to make? Caroline and I made them right after I put Molly down for a nap, and let them cool during her nap so when she woke up, they were all ready to cut!
The cookie recipe I use is from a high school friend of mine, Katie. I first remember helping make these cookies for her sister Mandy the summer before she went off to Auburn. They are hands down the BEST cookies ever. I have tried many, many chocolate chip cookie recipes, and none compare.
I think the secret is dark brown sugar and the sweet buttery goodness that is....crisco!
"Good job Mommy!"
And just so you know, Molly was there too!
Do y'all have any special recipes that you use just around Christmas?
