The first time I made Chocolate Chip cookies was on Nov.5th, 2006 (still remember the dates ;)) and boy they were delicious, just what I was hoping for. I made it for my hubby’s birthday and boy they were a bit hit.
So, after some time I wanted to bake ’em again but unfortunately (or fortunately ;)) I couldn’t find my recipe, looked everywhere but nope, couldn’t find it. Now a couple of days back my sis asked me to bake her these delicious cookies.
So, now I had to look for the PERFECT recipe. I like my cookie to be soft and crumbly, crisp around the edges and a soft center. Thank God I found this site She wears many hats and gave these cookies a shot, although I searched and investigated atleast 10 12 sites, picked this one, which I liked the most. And the cookies didn’t disappoint me at all. They were just the thing I had been looking for, enough talking, bake ’em and see for yourself, what exactly I mean.

I am participating in a chocolate chip cookie contest, so here’s the image and the link. These posts are pretty old. In those days I was a novice food blogger, so the images reflect the same image. But don’t let the dull, un-sharp images distract you, these cookies have received rave reviews from everyone who tried them.
Wish me luck people, wish me luck!
