I love making cookies. I think it might have something to do with my mom always having freshly baked cookies awaiting me and my brother when we would get home from school. When I was young, I would picture myself whipping up something fabulous in the kitchen and presenting them to my kids and husband and they would keep begging me for just one more cookie. I guess you can say my mom’s baking left me with quite an impression.
These days, I’m baking cookies on an almost weekly basis for my husband’s lunches and if we’re having company over, I like to have cookies in the house for them as well. And with every batch of cookies I make, I always set aside about 4 of those cookies to pass on to my mom and dad to share too. It’s like the ultimate reward if I get the cookie approval from my mom. My dad’s approval is great too, but he is a simpleton and is perfectly happy with Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Last year when all the baking products were on sale, I went crazy with buying all kinds of different chocolate chip morsels. One of of the packages I bought was Nestle’s dark chocolate and mint morsels. That’s right, I held onto that bag for an entire year before using it! I wanted the perfect recipe, but last year when I was on the hunt, I didn’t see anything that I liked. Maybe I didn’t look hard enough, because this year I found a recipe that had my husband, my mom, my sisters & brother ( in-laws), and my kids oohing and awing. Even my dad said they were good. And he’s not a mint liking person.
I whipped these cookies up and fell in love and so did everyone else. I haven’t been able to keep my husbands hand out of the cookie jar. It’s not enough that he gets 3 or 4 of these babies in his lunch, but when he gets home, he goes straight for the cookie jar and grabs one…or two. They are that good!
If you come across some of these bags of Nestle morsels, I highly recommend you buy as many packages as you can fit in your cart because they are a seasonal item and you should stock up while you can! That’s an order! :)
