Thanks to the always amusing Stacia for sharing her mom's recipe for M&M cookies, a recipe that she swears is "amazeballs." You can find Stacia on her own blog, Dried-On Milk.
Merry Christmas everyone! Or should I say Happy Holidays, to cover the huge gamut of religions? You get the idea. Life with two small children has been ... interesting, especially now that EZ is way more mobile. Like, climb on the dining room table and eat part of the gingerbread house mobile. I’m saying that 18 month olds are WAY harder than newborns. Way. Harder. Unless you have more than one newborn, then you win.
Tara asked me if I had a cookie recipe to share and boy do I?! My mom use to send me these cookies when I was away at college. They were always so soft, even days later, if they lasted that long. All my friends would raid my room when that package came from my mom. This is her recipe and though it’s a fairly simple chocolate chip recipe, there’s just something about these that are amazeballs.
I will say that J and I had to tweak this recipe to work for our oven. We have a gas oven and my mom has an electric. There is a difference people!!!! I noted the differences in the recipe below.
