Are you in it for the cookies or just the dough?
I never used to be a cookie dough person....... until I started baking with Jasper. Now as soon as the butter and sugar are creamed he is swiping tastes out of the bowl. Once we add the flour and chocolate chips he is eagerly shoveling mounds of fresh dough into his mouth. I often worry about him getting sick from eating too much dough, but the joy on his face reminds me of how happy this makes him. If nothing else, this all reminds me to live more in the moment. As a Mom I have slowly learned that real living occurs when the mess begins. And the mess all over the counter and floor are just souvenirs of time well spent.
Our go to chocolate chip cookie recipe. I like this recipe for the combination of sugar it uses and because I dislike being inundated with dozens and dozens of cookies.
