What a great day to have my in-laws over and Mom, Cheryl baking with my husband Anthony. It's a fond memory for him making these Chocolate Chip cookies with his mother. It's a very old Betty Crocker Cookbook she brought along to make the recipe with. Since 1939, we Americans have been enjoying this classic cooky (as they spelled it. I only hope we have a few more moments like this. It is a great recipe and slightly different than the other one I have posted.
