Olympic Gold Medal Chocolate Chip Cookies Made by Mom
I know everyone brags that their mom makes the best cookies. Probably because many moms follow the Nestle Tollhouse recipe on the back of the chocolate chips package. But my mom, the forever health-nut, loves to add acup of oatmeal, a cup of Craisins, and a cup of chopped almonds. I'm so craving her cookies right now. Since she moved to a higher altitude within the past six months and is not used to baking in new conditions, she has been practicing to get her cookies just right. Here is a text pic she sent me few weeks back... to which I replied that they looked flat. I know... with her I'm brutally honest. Sort of like the way she tells me my rear is 'gorda.' That's just the loving relationship we have.
Here is one she made for my step-father on Valentine's.
(Excuse the blurry image... my still life shots are better than hers.)
Looking a little better mom, still a little overcooked on the edges.
You have a couple more days of practice runs to get it just right before I fly across country to visit.
