Extraordinary Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? (No one I know of.) And I know everyone out there has their favorite version. This particular recipe came from the Betty Crocker magazine. I decided if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me, so I tried it. And of course they came out looking, smelling, and tasting delicious!

(Reminder: No Sweet Thursday Dessert event this month. Instead it will be hosted on Feb 11. The theme is Winter/Valentines. To have your creation featured here, just email me the link to your post (simplysweethome@hotmail.com). Also, if you have a particular photo you want used, send that as well.

Also, I’d like your opinion: I’m considering adding a linky to the event for anyone who just happens to come by. I figure we’d start with one or two links and maybe eventually get a bunch. However, I don’t want a linky to dissuade people from emailing their item to me before the event b/c I still want to keep the usual format until a day when their may be too many entries to handle. On the other hand, a linky event might get more participation anyway. What do you guys think? I’d love to get your opinion!)

Sorry for the digression……enjoy the cookie recipe!
