the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are many family's that claim to have the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies. And, if your family has there own...don't mess with a good thing. I am a big believer in family recipes. However, if your family has yet to find THEIR chocolate cookie recipe, will you give this recipe a try?
I honestly think it is the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. Of any family's recipes.

3 things in this house are sacred. My daughters cookies, Nate's coffee, and Nate's chili. I've already shared Nate's venison chili, lots of coffee shop coffee recipes, and so today...the BEST chocolate chip cookies.

All of the above named have been secret. They store it in their head. And hope that no one tortures them. I have not even been allowed to know. In fact, until recently, I wasn't even allowed into the kitchen while they were being made.

Which, really, isn't such a bad thing is it :).

Finally, I convinced my daughter that there are many of you out there that don't have access to the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and it would be a kindness to share.

It might have taken me YEARS of convincing to make this happen.

These chocolate chip cookies are a commodity in our house. Katie is bribed by many to make them, begged and tricked. All for a cookie. They are that good.

At Christmas, my siblings would tell her that they wouldn't give her the gifts they had for her until she made a batch of cookies.

She did. And Christmas gift opening waited until everyone had cookies in hand.
