I love the flavor of brown sugar in cookies and this is one recipe which involves that ingredient. I remember, precisely, the very first time I had chocolate chip cookies. I was a teenager in my 8th grade. A friend, Divya, brought some of these delicious cookies to school which her mom had baked. I fell in love with them. I completed my board exams 2 years later, and we parted ways. And ever since, I have never tasted a cookie better than those that Divya brought. Till date, no cookie has beaten that taste which still remains vivid in my mind and taste buds.
Divi and I are still in touch today but unfortunately, not geographically close enough, to share those mmmm.....mmmm...cookies.
This recipe makes great chocolate chip cookies..........kinda close to those I remember from years before. Enjoyeeee!
Before the wonderful recipe, there's wonderful news. My, my!...........and here's one more award for me . I'm all smiles.
