Popcorn and Dark Chocolate Chunk Coookies
July 26, 2013 § 1 Comment
Some of my most vivid childhood memories are of making chocolate chip cookies with my dad at our house in Minnesota. I’d come home from school on Friday afternoon and my dad would have the ingredients all set out.
We’d do the wet ingredients, which is probably when I learned to crack an egg. Then we’d mix the dry ingredients in another bowl, hopefully not confusing baking powder and baking soda or adding in three tablespoons of salt. My sister and I would probably fight about who got to do what, but I don’t totally remember.
Then we’d put them on the baking sheets. We’d each get a huge spoonful of cookie dough. And then clamor to scrape the dough out of the bowl for that extra taste. When they came out of the oven we got a few cookies with a big glass of milk. That was the best.
