25 Days of Cookies!

Hello Sweets!  It's been way too long, I'm sorry for going off the grid for the past few months!  My husband and I moved into the city and while that has been beyond amazing, the tragedy of the move was leaving almost all of my baking pans in the old apartment!  The only things that came with me were a bread pan, 2 round cake pans and 1 very small cookie sheet.  It has been a nice break from baking and I think I've lost a little weight because of it (woohoo!) but with Christmas approaching, the bug is back.

I decided to bring BostonSweetie back to life with a promise to do a post a day from now through December 26.  Each of these posts will be about one of my favorite treats- cookies!

The first cookie I have to share with you is a classic chocolate chip recipe that I've been baking with my mom since as far back as I can remember.  This was our cookie that we made for Santa, gave to the neighbors, and ate with milk while watching Rudolph and Frosty.  I've always loved them straight out of the oven, nice and hot, but these are sooo good the next day, too!  These whip up fast and bake fast too- so they are an excellent choice for a quick turnaround.

The special thing about this exact batch that I'm showing you, is that my husband made them!  It took him about 10 minutes to get the dough mixed up and then 10 more minutes to bake.  He is the best!

I don't know what cookbook it comes from- it's a really old photocopy that my mom has had forever, so if someone recognizes it from the photo, please let me know and I'll attribute the recipe accordingly.

If you try this recipe, let me know how you liked it in the comments below.  And if you have suggestions for a cookie recipe I should try this month, please share that below, too!
Mum's handwriting on the recipe - too bad I left all my cooling racks at the apartment too!  If anyone is in the same boat, a plate works just fine :)
