A quick and easy fun treat for a tailgate party or the holidays. Years ago, a close friend always baked her chocolate chip cookies in a mini-muffin pan to share when we took our children to the swimming pool. She told me it was like baking cookies on a cookie sheet - just test for doneness. Glad I gave it a try.
