Chocolate Chip Cookies

What’s your favorite cookie recipe?

At The Frog & PenguINN – holidays or not – it’s the chocolate chip cookie, a drop cookie created in the U.S. and featuring semi-sweet chocolate chips. Other ingredients include white and brown sugars, flour, salt, eggs, baking powder, butter or shortening; vanilla extract; and (if you prefer) chopped nuts. Depending on the ratio of ingredients, mixing and cooking times, some recipes produce a softer, chewy style cookie and others produce a crunchy/crispy style – either way they’re still delicious.

My favorite recipe is one someone else makes!
Chocolate chips and coffee were my breakfast all thru college... Ate the cookies on the way to my morning class. I guess CCs are still my favorite.
Bringing some to the Caroling tonight?

Hello everyone, wish we could have you all over for some hot chocolate and fresh baked cookies during the holiday season!

Mona, yes these cookies are yummy and Grenville's favorite next to the the best ever brownies, peanut butter cookies, cocoa chocolate chips.
Possum would have to tear them out of Grenville's hands to give away!
Hey Steve, you sure have done a lot of baking. We have some packages left for after-holiday baking cause the ones we have will be gone within a couple of weeks.
Christer, this is an easy recipe to try if you can get all the ingredients in your grocery stores.
