Cookies & Milk

 Cookies & Milk 

One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to bake homemade cookies. There is nothing better than a big plate of cookies & ice cold milk, I mean just ask Santa. 

Today I would like to share a semi famous chocolate chip cookie recipe. I can not say where it came from, or how I came by it, but just know it is the best chocolate cookie recipe on the planet and has been in my family for 17 years now. Everyone I know wants this recipe, so I am finally going to share it….. 

Jenron’s Almost Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies

The Shopping List:

  • 2 cups all purpose flour -sifted
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan Sea Salt

Cream together the room temp butter and sugars in mixer until it forms a paste. Then add in the slightly beaten eggs and vanilla. 

In a separate bowl sift flour, baking powder and salt together.  Add to mixer slowly, about a half a cup at a time. Then add in the oats for a quick mix.
