Here is a picture of my grandmother's old cookie jar filled with my favorite recipe for soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies. The recipe comes fromCookies and Brownies by Alice Medrich. This is the only recipe I use for chocolate chip cookies. With three growing boys excluding my husband, I have been known to double this recipe. I take a short cut and melt the butter in my microwave as well and use a small ice cream scoop to form the cookies. Needless to say, they do not linger in my kitchen for long. Yum!
