Every now and then you try a new recipe and it becomes a family favorite. As time passes, it becomes what you’re KNOWN for. That’s what this recipe is for me. Whether it’s family vacation, camping trips, or jointly throwing parties, this is the recipe that I’m most frequently asked to make. At Christmas, if I don’t deliver them to a few certain friends, I get sideways glances until the Christmas tin shows up on their doorstep.
These chocolate chip cookies are ridiculously good, and actually pretty healthy. The recipe originally came from a First Baptist Church of Atlanta cookbook.

So, here you go. Give ‘em a try and let me know what you think!
