Bake Sale Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I dropped my daughter off at basketball practice tonight, I realized that I had forgotten something. Everyone was carrying various trays and bags of cookies which reminded me that I was also supposed to bring 2 dozen cookies for this weekend’s bake sale. Woops!

A stop at the store, 2 hours, and 6 1/2 dozen cookies later, I ran back to pick Pie up from practice and drop off a tray of warm cookies. For once, the cookies actually turned out and they were pretty darn good! 

Success!

Then I ate three.soft chocolate chip cookies
