|Do you like how I sneak in a picture of my darling pajama-wearing boy when the post is actually supposed to be about the cookies?|
I thought I was pretty good at it.
But the last five times I've made them,
something has gone terribly awry.
Sure, they taste okay,
but they're spongey, crumbly, fall-apart little round messes.
It happened to my gingersnaps, to my oatmeal scotchies, and to my chocolate chip cookies.
I would blame it on my oven, or my ingredients,
but then Kent finds a recipe online (which he never bookmarks or saves) and his cookies turn out perfect.
What's the deal?
So, I need your help.
I need a good recipe for chocolate chip cookies-
the recipe you make over and over and over again.
The one that works for you.
First, though, I must tell you.
I like my chocolate chip cookies to be thick, substantial, chewy, soft.
Not like this:

I will try every recipe that I am sent,
and the person who sends the recipe that I like best (or perhaps the one that I don't ruin somehow)
will be the winner of their very own copy of
(referenced in my last post-seriously one of my favorite books ever-inspiring, encouraging; every time I read it I find more reasons to love motherhood, even on the days where I feel like I'm "in the trenches.")
well...a little bonus surprise.
You have until
I don't know how long it will take me to test the recipes, but I promise I will try every last one. I'm really getting tired of these sponge cookies.
Here's to hoping my cookie-making skills can be rescued!
Post script: Wow! I had no idea I would get so much feedback. I've gotten numerous emails, facebook messages, and comments. It's great! At this rate, though, I'm going to be making chocolate chip cookies until June. Which isn't really a bad thing... So, keep them coming until tomorrow, and then I'll start the baking!
