My kids and I love to bake! Things may not always turn out the way we hoped but when you have 6 extra hands helping with measurements things might get doubled or overlooked. So when my Aunt Pam gave me her chocolate chip cookie recipe I made them by myself to make sure they came out just as good as when she made them. I have since let my kids help and they are amazing every time! If you like cookies that have a crispy crust but soft in the middle these are the cookies for you!
