Valentine’s Day Chocolate Chip Cookies

Valentine's Day Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love a good chocolate chip cookie?  I mean really, I don’t think there is a person on this planet who can resist them. I’ve been making them from scratch since I was a little girl and even have the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag memorized.  I remember one night several years ago when Floyd and I were still dating and we decided to have a low key night in. I asked if he wanted cookies, he of course said yes, and I started taking out the ingredients from my cupboards.  I mean, I can whip up a batch in no time flat so to me it just made sense.  I remember looking over and seeing him stare at me in amazement, mouth gaping open.  Apparently he had never seen anyone make chocolate chip cookies.  He was a store bought kid.  It seems absurd to me since they are pretty simple, but hey, maybe that’s what got him down on bended knee, hee hee.

Anyway, I decided it was time to amp up my old standby recipe.  So, when I stumbled upon this recipe for “The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie” on I decided to give it a whirl.  It’s pretty standard with a few small tweaks including directions to dissolve the baking soda in hot water and use more flour than what is typical, but it worked.  The results were oh-so-divine!  This will definitely replace the back of the bag instructions.  I also substituted the walnuts for Valentine’s Day M&Ms.  I just love the extra chocolate and seeing the pink and red colors peek through makes for a fun Valentine’s Day treat!

    Those cookies look great! But it’s also thanks in part to the mason of milk and the delightfully pink napkin. I’ll be sure to have both on hand when I decide to make these yummies. :)
