Heads up! May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Day
Did you know that May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day?
I love chocolate chip cookies, especially my mama's secret recipe. I'm a big fan of very flat cookies with the chocolate chips making lumps. It's funny, my youngest brother and I both use Mama's recipe, but out cookies turn our completely different (he likes his cookies with some substance).
I plan to celebrate with a big batch of chocolate chip cookies. When they come out of the oven, and have been removed from the pan, I'll yell out "Hot cookies!" and my husband and daughter will come running for a treat. My mother-in-law did this when her children were young, and I learned early on that my husband expected to be told when he could eat the cookies. I know my sister-in-law uses this tradition with her children too, and I think it's fun to see it get passed along to the next generation.
What's your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe? How will you celebrate? Check this out for more ideas and recipes.
Edited to Add: I have learned that today is actually National Chocolate Chip Day (see title) but it seems that when I see the words "chocolate chips" my brain automatically fills in with "cookie." Not necessarily a bad thing, but embarrassing when I realize it nonetheless. I still thinks we'll celebrate with cookies though.
