Sisterly Love

My sister made these for me while I was studying for finals... ahhh sisterly love!!! Usually, I am the one making chocolate chip cookies when family comes over, so it was a real treat when my sister made cookies for me. She used the recipe on the back of all purpose flour and when we compared recipes her recipe asked for a cup more of flour.  At first, we thought YIKES that is way too much flour but... they turned out MONSTROUSLY YUMMY!! A secret to perfect chocolate chip cookies is melting the butter first before mixing it in. What are your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes? 
Also, hop on over to see a family story I shared about Christmas time here...
