Recently Mary asked for chocolate chip cookie recipe ideas on her blog which is here. I responded with my tips but now I think it is time that I share my favorite recipe. Now keep in mind that this is my favorite regular chocolate chip cookie recipe. My mom has a recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip coconut cookies that by far win my prize for best cookie of all time. I will share that recipe some other time, though.
