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. They were called $250 Chocolate Chip Cookies, and there was some Neiman Marcus story related to them. So, while I’m not sure about the details surrounding all of that, what I AM sure of is that my healthier version of them is delicious!
So, here you go. Give ‘em a try and let me know what you think!
Tips for you:
- This cookie dough freezes well. The recipe makes so much that I usually divide it into fourths or thirds, wrap in waxed paper, slip into freezer bags and into the freezer. So handy to pull out and bake when needed.
- You could totally slip some of your favorite protein powder into this recipe.
- Many times I use all coconut oil, rather than butter.
- Perfect gift for people you love!
