After many years of being put away in a box. I finally found an old recipe book I had made of some of my favorite recipes. The first one I had decided to make of course was Chocolate Chip Cookies. My husband has been on this chocolate chip phase. Don't get me wrong I love the store bought. So easy I mean you open package stick on baking sheet, bake and you are done. But I needed to remind him of when we were younger and he would have fresh baked cookies all the time. See this recipe was one of his favorites. So I decided that I would surprise him with some cookies.
Let's just say. He loved them! He was so excited. I didn't tell him at first that they were homemade. He was in the room with the door shut. Since he loves to blast the TV. I always close the door. So I took it as an opportunity to make him some cookies. I knew he wouldn't hear the mixer so there would be no reason for him to come out of the room and snoop around. Luckily he didn't want anything from the kitchen. I walked in the room when they were done. dropped them in front of him with a big cup of milk and walked away. Within no more than 10 minutes. He came out and said "OMG I so know those were made by you"! I asked " why do you say that"? He said I know my honeys cookies anywhere! lol So cute! I advised I did make the cookies and he said " Those are so better than store bought"! I knew right then I would be in trouble and homemade cookies would be what he wanted from now on.
