Granny’s “Secret” Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Christmas is around the corner and I know some people have traditions that they do every year with their family. In my family, my great-grandmother (may she rest in peace) made batches of chocolate chip cookies for everyone in the family. Everyone knew to expect their personal batch on Christmas Eve.

It is important to point out that, Granny wasn't a spring chicken (93 years old going on 52) and she never used a blender! Everything was hand mixed with a spatula or a spoon!

On my college breaks, I made my way to her house and gave her a helping hand. I was ready! Pen and paper in hand I asked granny, “who taught you this famous recipe?” She said, “Oh, I just use the recipe on the back of TollHouse Chocolate Chip Cookies bag.” I fell out laughing!
