It has been almost 6 months since I started this blog, I can hardly believe it! And here we are on my 100th post!
It has been an amazing 6 months. I have so enjoyed getting to know so many wonderful bloggers from all over, and being part of such an amazing and supportive community.
In honor of my first 6 months and first 100 posts, I have for you the New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies. I know I posted about these a couple of months ago, but they were one of many treats in that post and they are so delicious they deserve a little more attention than they got there.
I am a cookie girl through and through. I love making them and I love eating them. One of the few things my mom baked growing up was chocolate chip cookies (she used a slightly modified Toll House recipe). The memory of eating ccc's is a distinct one from my childhood. They signify home. They are the thing I have baked more than any other by far, though I have always been on the search for the perfect cookie. I am happy to say the search is over. These are my ideal chocolate chip cookie. That is not to say that I won't try out another recipe. I can't imagine that there is a recipe out there that I could possibly love as much as I love this one let alone more, though I suppose there is always a chance...
The recipe can be found here.
In addition, I'm giving away an 8x8 stone baking dish! I do all of my baking (with the exception of cakes) in/on baking stones, and I love them. They are completely non-toxic, they bake incredibly evenly and they become more and more non-stick over time and they're made in the USA! I love stone bakeware and I can't say enough good things about it.
