I have the sweetest neighbor a few doors down from me. She is just one of those old souls that oozes with wisdom and kindness. She is constantly serving others and one night we were the lucky recipients of her kindness. She brought down a plate full of cookies and I think I downed them in 10 minutes! My poor kids didn’t even get to try them the next day…oops. I saw her the next next day and she wrote down her recipe for me.

She also told me 2 SECRETS that make these cookies perfection and now I’m sharing them with you!

  1. I am so glad to see this!! I have been "banging" my cookies for 35 years, and I always get perfect, chewy chocolate chip cookies. When people ask my secret, I tell them I bang the cookies, and they never believe me–no one ever tries it. Now I know I am not the only one who does this.
